BYP is unique, being the only youth club in West Yorkshire which specialises in delivering all of its youth work through the performing arts.
We combine the best bits of a theatre school and an amateur dramatics group in a youth club setting.

Laser Tag
Presented by Act Two

This is the ultimate laser tag game. Using state-of-the-art, computer controlled equipment, you score points by shooting your opponents. You can terminate other players for a short time and even earn extra points by deactivating the bases inside the arena (but be careful, they can shoot back!)

The game is played in a professionally themed, 8,000 square foot laser arena filled with special effect lighting, great music and theatre grade smoke all creating an exciting atmosphere, adding to the overall game experience.

This is an activity for everyone, regardless of age or gender as long as you meet the minimum height requirement of 3.5 feet and are wearing flat shoes.

Each game is scored independently so, don't worry if you can't come along until later, you'll soon get in the swing of it!

If you want to support us but can't come on the night you can still buy a ticket and it's good for three games another evening within a month of our event!

An eclectic group of six-graders arrive at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. With hilarious, touching and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. An engaging, tuneful score by William Finn and a sweet, funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, will cause audiences to fall in love with these "perspicacious," "jocular," and "effervescent" spellers.
