BANBURY'S AWARD WINNING  YOUTH THEATRE GROUP

ABOUT YOBOS

Renowned for our ability to put on a fully staged musical in just one week during the summer, YOBOS is an award winning, non-profit making, group created in 2003, as an exciting musical theatre project giving 11 to 19 year olds in the Banbury and North Oxfordshire area a taste of what it takes to be in a musical production. YOBOS high quality productions have resulted in the group gaining national recognition, winning awards as well as being asked to perform in the West End as part of a showcase of the country’s talented young performers on numerous occasions. The YOBOS performances are fully costumed, with professional quality lighting and sound, along with a live orchestra. Our previous productions include '42nd Street', 'Rock of Ages', 'The Wedding Singer', 'Legally Blonde', 'Grease,' '13 the Musical,'  ‘Seussical the Musical,’ ‘Rent,’ ‘Hairspray,’ ‘Little Shop of Horrors,’ ‘Crazy for You,’ ‘Hot Mikado,’ ‘Fame,’ ‘Barnum,’ ‘Anything Goes,’ ‘Honk!,’ and ‘Bugsy Malone.’ All these productions were met with rave reviews, not only from audience members, but also from our members!
