To all the mamas, aunties, grandmas and guardians who mother, we wish you the most lovely of mothers days, wrapped in love, breakfast in bed, and showered with homemade cards and presents ๐Ÿ’ž. You make the world go round in every way imaginable, thank you ๐Ÿ™Œ.

Also thinking today of those whose mummy is not here to spoil, and those yet to be mummies who dream about that day and those struggling to become mummies who find today tough. We know days like these bring such mixed emotions, so be kind and gentle with yourselves today xx

The anticipation is building ๐Ÿ™Œ. Excitement is in the air, and our byts are almost ready to take to the stage in front of their family and friends ๐Ÿคฉ.

It's final rehearsals week at Bright Young Things, before our wonderfully talented and brave byt's take to the stage next week for our annual shows.

โ€˜We are Wonderlandโ€™ is a collection of devised plays created using only the imaginations of our Bright Young Things. Each of our byts are much more than actors, they are Theatre-Makers. Designers. Creators and Collaborators. And they are brimming with pride.

Here is a short peek behind the rehearsals curtain...

* Holywood Shows will take place on Tuesday 2nd April at Tucker Theatre, Rockport School
* Magherafelt Shows will take place on Wednesday 3rd April at Seamus Heaney HomePlace
* Ballymena Shows will take place on Thursday 4th April at Braid Arts Centre, Ballymena
*Belfast Shows will take place on Thursday 4th and Saturday 6th April at Strand Arts Theatre, Belfast.

Seats are of course prioritised for BYT friends and family, but if you would like to come along and enjoy any of our shows and get a taste for Bright Young Things, we would love to welcome. Just get in touch in advance to check if we have space.
