Showtime for young talent

Youth Music Theatre will be in Sheffield this weekend to audition local talent for its Summer 2014 company.

On Sunday at The Montgomery on Surrey Street there will be a choice of two 2½ hour dance/drama/singing workshops led by a professional director, choreographer and musical director.

Successful auditionees will go on to train for full scale productions at leading theatres and arts festivals around the country. In the process they will learn new skills, make friends and take their first steps in a career in the performing arts. They also receive Trinity College’s Grade 8 certificates in Musical Theatre

One current YMT member is Sheffield’s Louise Webster, who last year appeared in Lindsay Kemp’s Variete at the Riverside Studios in London. “YMT has not only deepened my love for performing, but also for the people I share the stage with,” she said. “Be prepared for lifelong friends and a whole lot of laughter; auditioning will be the best decision you’ll ever make!”
