Youngsters and adults will get the chance to train with stars of the West End at a special day-long workshop in North Walsham this autumn.
The event will give those who come along priority to sign up for a week-long West End Experience course in February half-term 2015 with cost of their taster day refunded if they book ahead.
It is the first time the popular West End Experience has come to North Norfolk and organisers have chosen The Atrium because of its rehearsal and performance facilities. Previously courses in Norfolk have run only in Norwich and within schools in Aylsham and Hellesdon during activities week.
Stars of shows such as Les Miserables, Mamma Mia, and Wicked, among others, will work with the youngsters and adults to teach them dance routines from the shows and put them through their paces in big singing numbers as well as solos and acting. The week ends with a special performance by those taking part alongside the show stars. Courses are also attended by a London casting agent and many students have gone on to career in showbusiness after attending courses.
The Atrium day event will be on Sunday, October 26, 10am-6pm at a special price of £25 per person. It’s open to children over the age of eight and adults of any age.
Jo Chandler, the East Anglian organiser for West End Experience, said: “There are limited spaces available and we had three places snapped up as soon as we announced the date. We are excited to be able to stage one of our courses at The Atrium. The facilities there are just amazing, with plenty of space to learn the routines and a great theatre space for the show we put on at the end of the course.”
She added: “Anyone can come along, you don’t need singing and dancing experience to take part. It’s just an incredible opportunity to work with the best in the business. It’s also a real confidence booster for many of the youngsters and adults who take part.”
