The Lytham Academy of Theatre Arts is a long standing group, also known as L.A.T.A., that was formed in 1994.
Our aim was to give young people experience and training in all aspects of putting on a show…
LATA is open to young people aged between 10 and 18 years of age who all have one thing in common, their love and enthusiasm for the world of Musical Theatre, whether as a hobby, or a planned future in the business…
So, if you are of the right age and have always wanted to perform on stage then we are the group for you.
Many young people have gained from the group. Ex members now work in the theatre, but more importantly, the group brings young people together from all walks of life and helps them to gain confidence and friendships.
Many students have made firm friendships which are now life long and also troubled young people came to the group and finally found somewhere that they ‘fit in’.
LATA are highly thought of in the Lytham area and have won many awards for their productions. In recent years they won the overall best production award for the show Les Miserables and in 2013 the best staged and costumed in all the north west for last years Beauty and The Beast.
Productions are of an extremely high calibre and completely self funded.
