Be part of something BIG this Summer! For the first time ever in Lowestoft a SUMMER THEATRE PROJECT offering local youngsters an opportunity to work with an award winning West End Dream Team and be part of the Broadway Musical Hairspray to make the holidays a Summer to remember!
The aim of this SUMMER THEATRE PROJECT bought to you by MBK Creative Productions in association with the Marina Theatre is set to provide up to 50 youngsters aged 10 – 21 with the opportunity to work together, with an award winning team in a professional theatre.
The two week project culminates in 3 performances of a full-scale musical production of the Broadway gem Hairspray under the supervision of a highly skilled creative team including Director & Choreographer Matt Flint, award winning Musical Director Benjamin Holder, an orchestra and technical team all in less than 2 weeks!
The dates for the project are Saturday 25th July – Saturday 8th August with 3 performances that take place on Friday 7th August at 7.30pm and Saturday 8th August at 2.30pm & 7.30pm.
Auditions are taking place on Saturday 9th May 2015.
MATT FLINT – Hairspray Director & Choreographer
Matt trained at Laine Theatre Arts, London. He is a Creative Director & Choreographer for TV, Film & Theatre. He was the winner of So You Think You Can Dance in 2011 and choreographs for Strictly Come Dancing, Children In Need, Comic Relief and many West End productions. After bringing his touring dance convention Can You Dance? to the area a few years ago Matt has found time throughout the year to visit for Masterclasses and various local schools & colleges and believes there is so much talent in the area but little opportunity to work on full scale productions.
BENJAMIN HOLDER- Hairspray Musical Director
Ben studied Music at Oxford University & Piano Accompaniment at the Royal Academy of Music. He works as a musical director, pianist & keyboard player, writer, arranger and teacher. Ben is currently working on Bugsy Malone at the Lyric Theatre in the West End.
Ben was resident Musical Director for the Marina Theatre pantomime last year Snow White & the Seven Dwarves and had an amazing time working with a local dance school full of talent. He is hoping to find lots more at the auditions on Saturday 9th May.
We can’t wait to see you all on Saturday!
