Summer Showcase 2019 - The Sound of Music
After the success of this years production of Footloose, we are excited to announce that we will be presenting The Sound of Music as our 23rd Summer Showcase production in August 2019. Our Summer Showcase is an opportunity for Stagecoach Students from the UK and Overseas to take part in a two-week residency near London and then perform in a ‘professional’ theatre production.
To take part in our Summer Showcase, students will need to take part in our workshop-auditions. We welcome students from 10 years - 19 years and no previous experience is necessary, just bags of enthusiasm for our fun workshop-auditions in early 2018.
The workshop will be divided into sections where you will work on different elements of the show. Your family/friends will be invited to arrive 15 minutes before the end of the workshop to watch a small presentation of our work.
Once all of the workshop auditions are completed the audition team will select 80 students to make up the 2019 cast. Students who are invited to join the cast will then spend two weeks from 2nd August to 17th August with our incredible production team at St Mary’s University to rehearse and then perform the show at a professional theatre. For children who live long distances from St Mary’s University, boarding facilities are available.
