**A CHORUS LINE AUDITIONS**
- Are you aged 12+* (no upper age limit)?
- Do you love to Sing, Dance and Act?
- Would you like to work with theatre professionals to create a full-scale musical?
Then we are looking for you!
What happens when you put 80 young performers together in a professional theatre with an amazing Choreographer, superb Director, a fantastic Musical Director, breathtaking set and costumes with outstanding lighting designs…. pure theatrical magic, that’s what!
The aim of ‘A CHORUS LINE’ is to provide up to 80 youngsters aged 11-28 with the opportunity to work together in a professional theatre. The ONE week project culminates in four performances of a full-scale musical under the supervision of a highly skilled creative team including a professional Director, Choreographer, Musical Director, Musicians and Technical team all in just 1 week!
The Project provides students with a unique opportunity to take an active interest in the performing arts and is a good foundation for those wishing to further their careers in this field. As well as being actively involved in the arts, it helps our young cast build confidence, develop learning skills, unite with a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, have fun in an imaginative and creative environment, and of course, make lots of new friends!
Over the week students will work hard learning their lines, rehearsing songs and practicing dance routines, all with an enthusiasm and dedication that is unprecedented.
