|SPRING PROJECT 2020||FAQs|
Look who’s moved into the neighbourhood!
Everyone's favourite kooky family will hit the Old Town Hall stage for our Spring Youth Project 2020 in this spectacular musical comedy from the writers of multi award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys, with music and lyrics by Tony Award nominated Andrew Lippa.
AUDITIONS AND TECHNICAL INTERVIEWS
We are looking for a cast and crew of enthusiastic, talented and committed young people aged 12-21 to take part in this charming, witty and enchanting production.
Our stage performers have the opportunity to work with a highly skilled creative team including a professional Theatre Director, Choreographer, Musical Director, Musicians & Technical team to create a major musical on our main stage. Spring Youth Project is an inclusive and collaborative company that work with people who can respect each other, learn from each other and work together to create excellence.
Our auditions involve acting, singing and movement and are led by our outstanding creative team, who produce our show each year. You do not need to prepare anything as all songs and choreography are taught on the day. Stage Performers wishing to audition for Spring Youth Project must be at least 12, and no older than 21 years old on Fri 21 February 2020.
Our Backstage and Technical opportunities offer an exciting experience to work on our major musical as Deputy and Assistant Stage Managers, as Assistant Lighting and Sound Technicians and as part of the Props and Stage Crew Team.
Technical applicants will take part in a group interview with the professional technical team to discuss the backstage work involved and the areas that applicants could be involved in. You do not need to bring anything with you but a keen interested in theatre is desirable.
For safety reasons we do need to limit the amount of spaces to ensure that all participants are well supervised and get the best out of their experience, therefore we may not be able to take on everyone that applies.
PARTICIPATION FEESParticipation fee for Spring Youth Project is £165.00 per participant. We endeavour to keep project fees as low as possible but, unfortunately, we do have to cover increasing costs of venue hire, pastoral care and all tuition fees during our rehearsal and performance periods.
If a family has more than one member in Spring Youth Project, each additional sibling will be charged at £130.00 per participant. This can be paid for by contacting our Ticket Office on 01494 512 000.
We are happy to be paid in instalments and can discuss details and payment dates with you individually.
Please note: once payment (or part-payment) has been made there are no refunds – you have committed to the Project and taken a place from another auditionee.
The fee does not include meals or transportation which remains your responsibility. All fees for Spring Project 2019 must be paid by: Fri 3 January 2020. Failure to pay will result in the exclusion of the participant from the show.
You must be 12-21 years of age to be eligible for this project. There can be no exceptions made on the age restrictions.
Please wear comfortable clothes that you can dance in. Please also bring a packed lunch, plenty to drink and a good book or something to do as there can be quite a bit of waiting around as we try to see everyone. A finishing time is hard to predict so please bring a mobile phone or some coins for a pay-phone to call home when you have finished.
Please note: Only people auditioning will be allowed into the audition room.
Although we do everything possible to make the auditions fair there are only a limited number of places available. The decision of the Production Team on the day is final and correspondence will not be entered into.
