Join Mayflower Theatre for this year's summer youth projects
This summer Mayflower Theatre is giving young people lots of different opportunities to get involved in their summer youth projects.
Les Misérables School Edition and Revolution will be performed together at Thornden School in Chandler’s Ford from 28 July-12 August 2018.
Les Misérables School Edition is the epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. Revolution will offer local young dancers the opportunity to work and devise with choreographer Rebecca Leonard on a new short piece, inspired by the themes of Les Misérables and presented as a double bill with Les Misérables School Edition. Members of the Revolution company will also appear in some elements of Les Miserables Schools Edition.
In addition to performance opportunities, Mayflower Theatre is offering backstage opportunities as well as offering young musicians with Grade 8 in Violin, Horn in F or Oboe/Cor Anglais the chance to perform alongside industry professionals in their company orchestra. These projects will take place at Thornden Hall.
This summer, Mayflower Theatre is also working alongside ZooNation to present their Summer Youth Dance Project, Groove on Down the Road. Set in a fantastical urban world, ZooNation’s Groove On Down The Road tells the story of Dorothy and her adventures with Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion on their journey to Oz.
The audience join Dorothy — complete with ruby sneakers and friends — in this hip-hop dance production, as they follow the yellow brick road, in a quest to find happiness and family. This unique project will see ZooNation creatives working with local young people aged 10-18 to recreate and re-imagine this well-loved story and will take place at Solent University from 16 August - 1 September.
