West End theatre training for students

Les Miserables
Les Miserables

Aspiring young actors are invited to join a team of West End theatre professionals to help produce the smash hit musical Les Miserables School Edition.

And the end result will be performed in front of family and friends.

Last year’s Arts at Stowe Musical Theatre Summer School was a huge success, with a group of talented youngsters coming together for one week to produce the spectacular Little Shop of Horrors with a West End creative team.

This year, enthusiastic folk aged from 10 to 18 are once again required for seven full days of fun. They will be led at the workshops by top professionals including director Josh Seymour and music director Mark Aspinall, who are both hot off the stage of City of Angels at the Donmar Warehouse.

Skills will be developed in singing, dancing and acting, or students can try their hand at technical theatre.

The course runs from Saturday July 25 for a week, culminating in a performance at the Roxburgh Hall at 7pm on Saturday August 1.

Residential (£600) and day (£360) places are available for the week long school. For booking forms and more details email thearts@stowe.co.uk

Tickets for the show on the Sunday will cost £8, concessions £6 from 0845 680 1926.
