It was a musical extravaganza when Bakewell Youth Theatre turned on the style with a production of a much-loved show.

The Bakewell-based youth theatre group wowed audiences with a series of stunning outdoor performances of Cole Porter’s 1948 musical Kiss Me, Kate.

The shows took place in the garden of 1 Castle Street in Bakewell between Wednesday, August 10 and Saturday, August 13 as part of the annual Bakewell Arts Festival.

There were spirited performances from the whole cast as they told the story of the staging of a musical version of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

The youngsters playing bickering leading character and producer Frederick C Graham and his ex-wife Lilli Vanessa enjoyed their roles, as did those playing philanderer Bill Calhoun and the lovelorn Lois Lane.
