Butter Side Up Theatre company is an amateur dramatics group open to any one over the age of 18 and welcomes members from all walks of life from across Sheffield, Leeds, Derbyshire and more. We are proud to be an inclusive group, welcoming anyone regardless of orientation and often highlights the talents and energy of the LGBTQ+ community in performances and productions.
Since the very beginning, Butter side Up have offered members not only the chance to perform, but to try their hand at backstage work, directing, writing, film-making, and also the chance to develop skills in a low-pressure environment.
Unfortunately due to lockdown we have had to cancel a couple of our shows that we were planning to put on. Therefore we have decided to put on some original radio plays as an alternative to allow our members opportunity to get creative in terms of original writing, directing and radio play acting.
If you’re able to, please donate to our gofundme. We’re looking for support to help us cover our costs of keeping Butter Side Up going during the current crisis, and so we can continue to uphold local venues by renting rehearsal and performance space once this is all over.
One of our main projects during this time is Sunny Side Up Radio Plays - A collection of cheerful original content to help people see the brighter side of life during lockdown and the current crisis.
You can listen to them here > Bit.ly/BSUradioplays and we share a new piece twice a week acrossour social media platforms
