About SYD Seniors

Founded in the late '60s with a first production of 'Oklahoma' in 1970, SYD Seniors is the original SYD group. In 2011 the group was named Seniors to differentiate between SYD the company and this one group, which was previously just called SYD or the Sawston Youth Centre Drama Group.

SYD Seniors is open to those in school years 10 and 11 or at Sixth Form (or equivalent). Members are allowed to perform with the group until they turn 18, at which time they are invited to join our adult group STC.

From September to December we rehearse on a Wednesday evening 7:15pm - 9:30pm in the Music block at Sawston Village College and a Sunday afternoon 2:15pm - 4:45pm in the Marven Centre. In the new year we move our Wednesday rehearsals over to the Marven Centre 7:30pm - 9:45pm. Rehearsals run every week from the 25th September through to the show in February, excluding school holidays.

Membership of SYD Seniors costs £140 per year. This covers the cost of rehearsals, insurance, licencing, costumes and scenery as well as our residential weekend at Burwell House in January. SYD Seniors also perform in the Shelford Feast in July each year, the cost of which is included in the annual subs.
