About The Young Theatre

Young Theatre has produced over 100 productions in its 46 year history. Many were written specifically for the group by Ian R Wallace, Mark Britton, and Mike Wicherek. The latter took three one act plays to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1983. The group has performed everything from musicals to Shakespeare and Pinter to Euripides. The group revived the Beaconsfield Family Pantomime in 2009 with Cinderella..

Young Theatre has enjoyed success in local one act play festivals, winning over 120 awards. In 2004 the prodcution of Ball Boys won the All England Theatre Festival, taking all three trophies at the final. It went on to represent England in the British final, where Young Theatre became the first youth group to win. A staggering acheivement.

Formatting Cheatsheet

Bold & Italics

You can make text italics or make text bold by surrounding it with underscores or double asterisks.

    _italicized text_
    **bold text**
  

Lists + Paragraphs

Create a bullet list by simply beginning each line with a hyphen (aka "dash") and a space. Numbered lists are similar: begin each line with a digit, dot (aka "period"), and space. Here they are working in tandem with paragraphs:

    I've been doing musical theatre for a long time. Here's some of my favorite roles:

    - "Laurie" in _Little Women_, 2015
    - "Chad" in _High School Musical_, 2010
    - "Jimmy" in _Thoroughly Modern Millie_, 2007

    Notice that sweet empty line after my list, and also after each paragraph? They are important, as you will see in a moment.

    1. I will eat all your green M&M's.
    2. I never practice at home.
    3. Kissing scenes are the best.
  

Leave an Empty Line

After every paragraph and list (but NOT after each list item), press Enter twice. An empty line tells Markdown you're starting a new paragraph or list.

Hyperlinks

The text you want to be clickable (like this) is wrapped in square brackets, while the full web address, including the http:// is wrapped in parentheses. There is no space between the closing square bracket and the opening parenthesis, like so:

[text to show](http://google.com)
