So far in 2016…

This year has certainly been a busy one so far for AVYT!

2016 sees us celebrating our 10th Birthday and as such there has been lots of activity going on to help us see this year through with style.

For a start, we have launched this new website which should make it easier for us to keep you updated with what’s going on this summer.

This year has also seen a series of successful activity. In February we put on our second ever Improvised Comedy Show ‘Standard Delivery’, which saw a brave team of 5 stand up in front of an audience, unscripted and unplanned, playing a series of comedy games with suggestions from our audience. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all who participated and thanks to the Aylesbury Rugby club for hosting and to Tom Geggus – the mastermind behind AVYT’s Improvised Comedy Troupe, (email info@avyt.org if you’re interested).

Next, we held Auditions for our Summer Show, The Producers. This year’s auditions saw a wealth of new talent join the company and updates for The Producers will be appearing on this page shortly.

In May we held our Annual Variety Show, where members were able to perform an act of their choice to friends and family. We have a range of acts with some comedy, lots of solos and group numbers, some dance and music. We raise over £200 towards our summer show.

In June, a small group performed at Hyde Heath Primary School Fete, an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic, we put our own spin on things and performed ‘Alex in Wonderland’. The British sunshine held out and allowed us to perform al-fresco and it was a very fun afternoon.

Just last weekend, we held a Fundraising Quiz night, again raising over £200 towards The Producers.

Thanks all for your support so far, we’ll be introducing the team behind ‘The Producers to you all shortly and, as ever, if you’re interested in joining AVYT please do get in touch using the contact form here or info@avyt.org.
