Barnes is a hotbed of talented thespians and there are drama groups for all ages to join. There are regular productions at the Old Sorting Office and at Christmas there's always a wonderful pantomime in the Music Room at the Bull's Head.
Barnes' current most famous theatrical alumnus is the actor Robert Pattinson whose image now adorns many teenage girls' bedrooms in his status as hearthrob star of the Twilight series of movies. He started his theatrical career with the Barnes Players and now is the toast of Hollywood. So if you hanker after stardom yourself or merely wish to have a ringside seat at the birth of a new star it pays to pay attention to what's going on the Barnes theatre scene!
