BYTESIZED Productions is going back to the classics as it celebrates a decade on the Border.
The youth theatre branch of Albury-Wodonga Theatre, BYTESized Productions, will open Singin' in the Rain Jr at Albury Entertainment Centre on Friday night.
A cast of 48, ranging in age from 8 to 18, and eight crew will put on three shows this weekend.
Singin' in the Rain Jr director Mitch Clarke said the production, which was based on the classic movie musical, was a worthy choice for the milestone year.
"It's been great going back to a classic show this time," he said.
"We often lean towards Disney productions so it has been a change to do a more realistic show."
BYTESized Productions has been creating musical theatre productions on the Border since 2011.
Having been involved with BYTESized since 2016, Clarke said it had happened almost by chance.
"I went along to help out with the audition forms to actually auditioning for a show," Clarke said.
"I ended up doing four shows before I was assistant director on Kinky Boots."
