The UK's leading theatre company for young people, Youth Music Theatre will be coming to Derry next month with their National Auditions Tour at the Playhouse on Sunday 12th February.
The YMT Auditions are for anyone aged 11 to 21 and are aimed at those looking to kick-start a career in the performing arts, and previous big names who have been members of the company include Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Lauren Samuels
The 'Performer Auditions' will consist of a three-hour group workshop led by a professional director, musical director and choreographer and performers do not need to prepare anything as the auditions are said to be very informal and provide a fantastic learning experience for participants. Auditionjs cost £15 but you can recieve a £5 discount using the promo code: DERRY2017 when booking online via http://www.youthmusictheatreuk.org/
Musician Auditions are open to anyone who plays any instrument to a Grade 7 standard and are free to attend. Book your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shows coming up with the Youth Music Theatre include the world première of the original 1960's rock opera - A Teenage Opera; the tragic tale of Tess of the d'Urbervilles; a rip-roaring, fantastical Gulliver's Travels with music from Duke Special; and a darkly imaginative Jabberwocky will take a modern view of characters from Alice through the Looking Glass.
