And they have a show worthy of the occasion: Beauty And The Beast Jr.
Having had a few disrupted years because of COVID, and after moving to the Bathurst Showground for their Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr production last year, the young Bathurst talents are looking forward to striding the boards at BMEC once again.
"We are encouraging Bathurstians to come along and support everyone's hard work," the Carillon Junior Theatrical Society's Bronni Colley said.
"With a cast of 68, it's the first time ever that we've double-cast the leads, who alternate between being leads and being members of the ensemble.
"The kids are really excited to perform.
"We have fabulous costumes - some hired, but the rest mainly hand-made by Sharon [Lockhart] and her team of parent and family helpers.
"Many of the kids have two to three costumes each.
"The sets and props have been mainly built by parents as well - it's a huge team effort."
