We are excited to announce that we will be presenting our 21st summer showcase production in August 2017. The Summer Showcase is an opportunity for Stagecoach Students from the UK and Overseas to audition for a place to perform in a ‘professional’ theatre production.
For your child to be eligible to audition they must be 10 years old. The eligible age group for this production is 10yrs -19yrs. Students under this age range will not be permitted to audition on this occasion. Note: once accepted into the cast, students must remain at Stagecoach until the end of the Summer Term 2017.
Once all of the workshop/auditions are completed the audition team will carefully select 80 students to make up the 2017 cast of Hairspray. Students who are invited to join the cast will then spend two weeks from 28th July to 12th August with our incredible production team at St Mary’s University to rehearse and they will perform the show at the artsdepot in North Finchley, London. For children who live long distances from these venues, boarding facilities are available.
We hope to be in contact with all applicants who auditioned for the show, by Friday 24th March 2017.
The show fee for Hairspray Summer Showcase 2017 will be £350. This fee covers all production calls, coaching, costume, and chaperoning over the two week period. Rehearsals will be held at St Mary’s University in Twickenham and the Students will perform the show at The Arts Depot in Finchley.
For Students who live too far away to make the daily trip to Twickenham for rehearsals we can offer accommodation in the University campus. All Students who choose to stay with us are chaperoned at all times and we have a Child Protection Officer on site 24 hours a day. We do aim to keep costs of accommodation to a minimum; however successful students should budget for approximately £440 per week, this is on a full board basis and includes all coach trips.
