A magical, musical tale for children written by Best’s David Bevan, this is the third time this ambitious piece has been presented by Best. It was also the first ever show at the SandPit Theatre 15 years ago, so it’s appropriate to bring it back for their anniversary. In Hertford, this will be the first time Best’s Hertford school has performed at the Hertford Theatre – a very exciting prospect!
Our annual Best shows are a brilliant chance to show off all those new found skills. We try something different each year- from musicals to more serious plays, from Shakespeare to pantomime – usually writing each show to meet the needs, size and make-up of the groups so that everyone gets lots to do and there are no auditions.
In July 2015, our youth theatre group TheBYTE was invited to perform The Boy Preference at the National Theatre as part of the National Theatre Connections programme. See what happened here.
