News From PB Theatricals Youth Theatre

Founded in 2009, PB Theatricals continues to give children and young people the opportunity to explore their creativity and confidence by casting, rehearsing and performing high quality Gilbert & Sullivan shows within a week.

This year, we begin our 11th season by taking on three new challenges with shows for people aged 10-18 (HMS Pinafore), 16-30 (The Gondoliers), and PB Theatricals veterans (Rarest of all Rarities at the Buxton Fringe).

We are inviting young people with a desire to get on stage and perform to take part in our productions. Register for auditions at or turn up at St Thomas More School on the 20th July, 10:00am. There is no need to audition for the younger show if you wish to be in the chorus!

If you cannot take part, don’t miss out. Tickets are available and can be reserved by emailing:

“Fine voices, excellent timing and synchronisation clearly gave this performance a professional touch, despite the cast having had 3 days to rehearse!” – Sandra J Cooper, Buxton Fringe Theatre Reviews

PB Theatricals is inclusive to all young people, and prides itself in emphasising fun and friendship while creating high quality operettas for all to enjoy. Coming together every summer, our performers believe that the music and comedy of Gilbert & Sullivan is still worth preserving and celebrating.
