Audition For New Production Of Fame

TALENTED young performers are required to audition for LHK Youth Theatre’s production of Fame at the Epstein Theatre. The auditions take place at The Epstein Theatre on Sunday, 7th February 2016 at 11.30am. LHK Youth Theatre will be staging the smash hit musical ‘FAME’ at The Epstein Theatre in July 2016 and is currently on the lookout for the region’s hottest new talent. Producer Lee Kelly is looking to put together a cast of 30 for the musical which is based on the 1980 hit musical film Fame which starred Irene Cara and featured the famous title song. The film told the story of students at New York City’s High School of Performing Arts and was followed by a six-season television series and the musical. It starred the fame-obsessed Carmen, ambitious actress Serena, wisecracking comedian/bad boy Joe, quiet violinist Schlomo, talented but dyslexic dancer Tyrone, determined actor Nick, overweight dancer Mabel, and poor dancer Iris. However, producer Lee is looking for strong dancers for his production of FAME, who can also sing and act and are good all round performers. The auditions are open to performers aged 8-19 and will be held at 12pm with registration at 11.30am so make sure you get there in plenty of time. They don’t need to worry about preparing an audition piece as Lee’s team of experienced professionals will give you a choreographed routine or song to sing. Successful candidates will then get to train with the best in the industry and star in a variety of productions from glittering pantomimes to fast-paced musicals, touring shows and youth productions. Lee explained: “At LHK Youth Theatre we aim to inspire, train and showcase exceptional performers aged 4-19 from all over the North West. It is not a dancing school – we cover a broad range of performance skills including singing, dancing and acting. “Each year we reach out across the region to discover exceptional new talent. Our training is based on the basic principal that the best place for young people to learn about the performing arts is on stage in front of a live audience. We provide a platform for young talent to be showcased on a regional, national and international stage in iconic theatres throughout the UK and beyond. “Our incomparable team of professional creative artists lead a fun, challenging educational programme which not only teaches children about performing arts and the skills required to excel in this field but we also teach transferable skills essential for children at any stage of their development.” If you are successful in gaining a place in the Youth Theatre, you must be prepared to rehearse twice a week.
