AUDIENCES have been given a sneak preview of a new South Yorkshire theatre.

Dance and drama students from Barnsley College put on a week of shows at the town’s new Electric Theatre – which is not due to be formally opened until next year.

The new theatre houses two dance studios and a 180-seater auditorium.

It also has specialist areas to teach students trapeze and other circus skills.

Richard Tolson, college head of music and performing arts, said: “The audiences for our shows were treated to outstanding performances, which is a wonderful start to the life of our new theatre.”
