Welcome To Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society
Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) performed its first pantomime in the Bryce Institute at Burneside in January 1975. Since then, there has been an uninterrupted run of 40 pantomimes, playing to packed houses.
In recent years, the Society has branched out into plays and musical events, ranging from Wyrd Sisters to Dracula to Showstoppers to Last Tango in Little Grimley!
Check out the latest images on the Showstoppers and the Hound of the Baskervilles pages, and the extensive coverage for our 40th pantomime, Cinderella.
Our membership consists of the young and not-so-young! We are always keen to encourage and recruit new members. So if you're interested...get in touch!
Membership for adults is £10 for each show participated in and for juniors (under 16) £5.00 for each show. This is due payable at first rehearsal for each show.
Over the years the Society has had a policy of ploughing any profits from productions into providing new facilities, such as lighting and sound equipment.
These facilities are not only available to BATS, but to other users of the Bryce Institute.
BATS works closely with the Management Committee of the Bryce Institute to ensure that the Institute, BURNESIDE'S VILLAGE HALL, provides marketable facilities to encourage a wide range of users to use this vital village facility.
If you want to know more contact BATS by email or our contact form.
