Welcome to Sawston Youth Drama, home to the largest amateur musical theatre company in Cambridgeshire. Please stay and have a look around, read on for more information on the group, or select a sub-group from the menu above.
In 1968, the Sawston Youth Centre Drama Group was formed to cater to a few young people wanting to improvise some drama. By 1970 the group had switched tracks to draw in bigger cast numbers and battled the local authority for funding, producing the first official performance, "Oklahoma!". 28 years later the group had become a highly regarded and well attended musical theatre company, and was handed over to current leader Mark Long. The group became Sawston Youth Drama, and continued to thrive, eventually splitting to form SYD Juniors in 2005, and then further to SYD 7s as well in 2009. Two years later we officially launched Sawston Theatre Company, the latest expansion of the SYD group for 18+ performers.
Sawston Youth Drama have been producing quality musical productions with casts of young people since 1970, and the aim today is exactly as it was back then; to give young people living locally the opportunity to develop skills in all aspects of drama, dance and music. Since the group's formation nearly 1000 young people have passed through the doors, a number of whom have gone on to perform in the West End or on national television. Each year the group aims to produce a show worthy of public performance, and audiences nearing 50,000 have enjoyed our productions to date. We believe these figures reflects the important role that SYD plays within the community and the need for the group to continue offering young people the chance to be involved in musical theatre.
