It was a clash of casts when Batley Amateur Thespian Society (BATS) came face to face with their professional counterparts.

Cast members from BATS upcoming production of High Society met with the professional touring cast of the show, who performed at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford last week.

For BATS, the meeting was a chance to discuss scenes, musical numbers and swop ideas about the classic musical.

Chris Sheard, who will play Dexter in BATS’ show in May, said the meeting was really interesting.

“It was nice to chat to them, it was worthwhile meeting them,” he said.

BATS’ production of High Society will run from Wednesday May 15 to Saturday May 18 at Batley Town Hall. Performances start at 7.15pm.

Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions). Call 07792634360 or visit https://tickets.kirklees.gov.uk/esro/default.asp.
