Ever since I heard that Stage & the City would be starting a new Musical Theatre Company I’ve been ecstatic. Knowing how fabulous our current Dance Company is, I knew that our new Musical Theatre Company would be equally as talented. Anyone that wished to join the Company would have to ooze passion, and that excited me.
Since the course started in April, I hadn’t had the chance to go to any of the classes to see our students in action, until yesterday. All I can say is WOW (yes, I’m using capitals). I’d heard so many great things about the students but seeing them perform with my own eyes really blew my mind. They were all so professional and dedicated. Their acting and dance skills were great, and their voices were powerful. I almost forgot that I was amongst amateurs!
Their teacher Harveen is absolutely incredible. She works hard to inspire the students, and she teaches them valuable techniques that enable them to take their skills to the next level. Having a professional musical theatre performer teaching them really does show in the quality of work that is produced.
The difference between our Musical Theatre Company and all of our Musical Theatre courses is that people have to audition to join, which means the standard is much higher. I would thoroughly recommend auditioning for the Company if you think you have already completed one of our other Musical Theatre courses and think you have the right skills.
I’m really excited to see how the students develop over the next few weeks, and I’m even more excited to see them performing on stage in their very own musical production at the end of the year!
