What is it?
Performing Arts is one side of YFC that not everyone thinks about however for many years, men have dressed as women, farmers have become performers and corn barns have become dance studios! The competition runs on the 3 year rotation between Drama, Pantomime & Entertainments.
Drama usually consist of a smaller cast with little singing and dancing however can be of a comical or serious note. Members have one hour to perform their drama production.
Pantomime is completely different with plenty of colour, dancing, singing and of course slapstick comedy. Like the drama, one hour is also given for the whole pantomime.
Entertainments can be a mixture of any talent including magic, dancing, singing and comedy and put together in 30 minutes.
It takes place during the winter months with the finals being held at the National AGM in early spring.
It’s a great opportunity for members to show off their talents and maybe try something new that they would never dream of doing outside YFC.
In true YFC style there is something for everyone and even if you aren’t one for treading the boards there’s always a job manning the lights and the sound and manual tasks like set building and painting!Why not give it a go, it would be fantastic to see entry numbers on an increase for Yorkshire!
