BARNSLEY Youth Theatre members are busy putting the finishing touches to a Halloween performance.

Thanks to the Arts Council funding it received, the theatre company has created the show, having collaborated with over a dozen participant groups including the YMCA, Age UK, AfA Barnsley and Feels Like Home, a group for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

BYT is bringing ‘Creepy Campfire Tales’, a gripping outdoor play, to RSPB Old Moor and Mandela Gardens in the run-up to Halloween.

Described as an ‘unforgettable evening of family-friendly humour, suspense and a dash of fright’, the production features a mean old witch, a pale scary Mummy and a nine-foot Bigfoot puppet.

There will also be dancing and singing, shadow puppets and elements of magic.

Prepare to be captivated by the misadventures of a group of quirky Scouts, left to their own devices when their wise leader unexpectedly departs.

As darkness falls and the stars twinkle above, the Scouts find themselves confronted by a host of spine-tingling monsters and daunting challenges.

Gathered around the crackling campfire, with the moon casting an ethereal glow, they share bone-chilling tales that will make your heart race and your imagination run wild.

The performance is at RSPB Old Moor on October 28 and at Mandela Gardens on October 29.

Gates open at 6pm and the play will start at 7pm with an interval. The production will finish at 9.30pm.
