Welcome to the Potters Bar Theatre Company
PBTC, founded in 1952, perform two musicals and two dramas each year. Our members are heavily involved in all aspects of putting on a show. Whether you are interested in acting and singing or are a dab hand with lighting and scenery, there is something for everyone, no matter what your age or experience. What can you do?
Productions for the rest of this year include Twelfth Night in September and Jesus Christ Superstar in November. We also have a low key fun variety night in October being held in the North Mymms Memorial Hall. Tickets will be available here.
We hope you are all keeping well and safe.
Following our message of 19/3/20 we would like to update you on our forward plans.
Unfortunately due to the far reaching effects of the pandemic and consequent life-style restrictions we can no longer consider an autumn production of Chicago. As an alternative we had hoped to present the show next year but we are very sad to have to announce that the license has been totally withdrawn for 2021, due to a planned professional tour. It is such a disappointment that we will not be able to present this show. We’d like to thank all those involved in its preparation and apologise to those who had already committed to attend. We know it would have been an amazing experience, with the fun and enthusiasm we had at rehearsal translating to stage.
For those who had already purchased tickets via the Wyllyotts box office they advise that they will give full refunds when they reopen. If anyone has an urgent need for ticket money refund please try emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) or ringing the box office 01707 645005 and leaving a message on their answer phone.
Due to the uncertainty of restrictions on social gathering and the timing of the re-opening of theatres we are reviewing our opportunities regularly but are unable to make firm plans for any productions in the latter part of the year at this time. Looking further forward we are planning to produce Kipps (the new Half a SixPence musical) in April 2021, and we hope that you will consider joining us either as cast, crew or audience for this joyous, colourful, fun musical.
As we all cope with weeks of lock-down, the AmDram world continues to be as inventive as possible and we progress with our on-line play readings for members and patrons. We are also maintaining close contact with our friends in the other companies to exchange ideas about ‘theatre restart’ when safe to do so.
Stay safe and well
