2020's Summer Youth Project production will be FAME the Musical!
Following the flying success of 2019’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the Wyvern Theatre’s Summer Youth Project for 2020 is proud to present Fame the Musical!
“They want to dance; they want to sing, to play music, to act, but above all to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy!”
Based on the 1980 iconic pop culture film, Fame the Musical follows the lives of students at New York’s High School for The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the trials and tribulations of life. The show does not shy away from complex issues as the young performers come to terms with the real cost of a career in show business. This will be reflected in our production and therefore we would like to make you aware of this prior to our audition process.
The Summer Youth Project is open to anyone aged 9 to 21 and is a great opportunity to work with a professional creative team. It brings over 140 young people together (both onstage and as part of the technical team) for a two week project which culminates in five performances on the Wyvern Theatre Stage. Participants get to learn about the theatre, develop their performance skills, make new friends and most importantly have fun whilst performing on in a professional theatre environment. The friendships, experiences and memories that are formed during the project are wonderfully unique and last a lifetime. The project is the product of a lot of hard work and time, and it is only through the commitment of everyone involved that the final result is so spectacular.
Auditions will be held on Saturday 25 April at the Phoenix Theatre, New College, Swindon SN3 1AH. To apply, please complete an Audition form and return to the Wyvern Theatre before Friday 10 April 2020.
