Fancy auditioning for Fame?

Date Posted:27/01/2016

MK Theatre FameYou don’t need leg-warmers, a leotard or even any previous musical theatre experience but if you’d like the opportunity to perform onstage at Milton Keynes Theatre then come along and audition for this year’s Stage Experience production, Fame The Musical.

Stage Experience is a unique summer holiday performance project produced by MKT’s Creative Learning Department. Fame will be the theatre’s fifth critically acclaimed youth production – previous credits include West Side Story (2011), Guys and Dolls (2012), Footloose (2013) and The Wiz (2014).
It’s not called Stage Experience for nothing. The two week rehearsal period is followed by the chance to discover what life is really like as a musical theatre performer.  

If you’ve seen the film or the stage musical, you’ll know that nobody makes it in show business without talent, a lot of hard work and a passion for performing. But before that, you have to be prepared to get up and sing, dance and act in front of a panel of working professionals at the auditions which will take place at Milton Keynes College on Thursday, April 7 at 10am for students in school years 5 – 11, then at 2pm for students in school years 12, 13, or university years 1-3 (or equivalent) - maximum age 21. There will be second round re-call auditions on Friday April 8 at 10am.

The creative team brought in to produce the show includes director Robert Marsden, choreographer Laura-Ann Smith and local musical director Matthew Reeve. With high quality set design and the addition of a live orchestra, Milton Keynes Theatre’s youth productions are an unforgettable experience for each and every one of the young cast who take part.

Rehearsals for Fame take place at Milton Keynes College with three performances at the end of the project on the Milton Keynes Theatre stage. There are 100 places in the cast available for young people aged 10-21 years. You must be available for all rehearsal dates, including weekends, between Monday, July 25 and Saturday, August 6.

Auditions for Fame, The Musical, are by application only which must be received by Friday, April 1. If you would like more information email MKT’s Creative Learning Department at:
