By The Play. . . Theatre Productions
Hello there! We are Sarah Bishop and Will Burns and together we are the creators of the new and exciting amateur dramatic theatre group based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. By The Play...Theatre Productions.
Two friends with many years of Theatre experience, the same vision and love of performing arts.
Our aim is to produce original productions from plays to Panto's, One man shows to Musicals, bringing together the community and giving local talented actors a new opportunity to take to the stage in brand new and original works.
You may know me, Sarah as the owner of the well established and highly commended Children's Musical Theatre Group Little Cherries featuring the Next Stepz Academy. I have been dancing, acting and writing plays and enjoying the performing arts since I was 5 yrs old. I hold a diploma in drama in education.
You may know me, Will from many productions on the local stage. I have recently passed a University degree in creative writing with first class honours at Manchester Metropolitan University. I wrote and produced a film in 2013 that won the Mediafish perspective award. I have appeared on stage and screen from Les Misérables to Emmerdale. I was also winner of the Fowler Cup at Wharfedale Literacy Festival. In spring 2020 I was delighted to receive a high first for my writing works as part of my University course. I am currently on the comedy circuit in Leeds and Manchester delivering my stand-up comedy routine. I am an accomplished writer and hope to bring many new and exciting pieces to the stage with By The Play... Theatre productions.
By The Play Productions will be managed as an unincorporated association, members being welcomed to join in all areas from acting to stage management to putting't t'kettle on.
A management group made up of suitably experienced people and a basic constitution are in place to ensure the smooth running of the venture.
