Fancy following in the footsteps of Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith?
Youth Music Theatre UK (YMT), the leading UK music theatre company for young people that has helped shape the careers of many including Brit Award winner Ed Sheeran and Grammy Award nominee Sam Smith, is searching for Northern Ireland’s next big star to take to the stage in one of its 2015 season productions.
Auditions, to be held at The Lyric Theatre Belfast on the 14th February, are open to anyone between the ages of 11-21 years and no previous experience is necessary.
Each January and February Youth Music Theatre UK tour the UK and Ireland auditioning young people in 24 cities, auditioning around 1,200 young people resulting in 300 young people being invited into the YMT Company to take part in a two/three-week residential course to work with professional creative teams to create a brand new musical that is performed in a professional venue/festival in summer. Each participant also receives a qualification from Trinity College London, who accredit all YMT’s activities.
“We are looking for strong singers and musicians to work on one of our many season’s productions for example the production of Gulliver’s Travels at the Lyric Theatre promises to take audiences on a journey through unknown lands with mythical creatures as we bring Jonathon Swift’s classical satirical tale magically to life. Gulliver’s Travels director Des Kennedy and choreographer Jennifer Rooney both hail from Northern Ireland with music from Belfast born platinum-selling singer songwriter Duke Special and we hope to add more local talent to the stage line up.” said YMT Executive Producer Jon Bromwich.
