Summer Project 2018
We are delighted to announce that this year's Summer Project will be BRING IT ON - THE MUSICAL.
Bitingly relevant, sprinkled with sass, and inspired by the hit film, Bring It On The Musical takes audiences on a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal, and forgiveness. Uniting some of the freshest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, Bring It On features an original story by Tony Award-winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (In The Heights, Hamilton), music by Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next To Normal), lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity) and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical.
Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic - she's been named captain of the squad! But an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighbouring, hard knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition - the National Championships.
Bring It On is ideal for any company with talented, young performers whether they're singers, dancers, actors, or cheerleaders. With a colourful assortment of characters, an exciting fresh sound and explosive choreography with aerial stunts, this hilarious, universal story is sure to be everything you hoped for and nothing like you expected.
Please download the Application Form (deadline: Fri 6 April 2018) and further information about Summer Project. Please fill in the application form and return along with a passport sized photo in advance of auditions. We anticipate that auditions (date: Sun 29 April 2018) will be popular and due to the actual number of Project places available and time restrictions on audition day we may not be able to see anyone who misses the application form deadline or just turns up on the day. Also, subject to actual numbers we might need to stop taking application forms BEFORE the deadline so please send your application form in nice and early!
The actual Summer Project will run from Sun 12 – Sat 25 August 2018. You must be available for all these days. Due to the short rehearsal and production time it is very important that you are fully committed to the Project for the whole period – for example, if you are on holiday and will miss the first couple of days of rehearsals them I’m afraid that you will not be able to take part. If you have an important appointment that will be difficult to reschedule such as dentist or doctor then please let us know in advance so that we can plan for your absence. Everyone should have a full day off on Sun 19 August along with some earlier finishes during the first week and later starts in the second. A full rehearsal schedule will be sent to project members in July.
We will write to all applicants again before auditions with further information on casting opportunities and our expectations for the day but in the meantime if you have any queries please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to seeing you all at auditions!
SUMMER PROJECT FEES:
The aim of Summer Project is to provide local young people with the opportunity to work in a professional theatre under the supervision of a highly-skilled production team including a professional director, choreographer, musical director and musicians.
The scheme has been evolving, getting bigger and brighter every year, providing local children with a unique opportunity to take an active interest in the arts, helping to build confidence, develop learning skills and uniting a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, whilst having fun in an imaginative and exciting environment.
Over the two week project the theatre comes alive to the sound of children working incredibly hard learning their lines, rehearsing songs and practising dance routines, all with an enthusiasm and dedication that is unprecedented. Year on year we receive praise for the high standards that the show ultimately produces with such a young cast.
Our Summer Project is self-funding and non-profit making. The ethos behind it has always been to provide the best possible experience and training at the lowest possible cost to the local young people who get involved.
Summer Project inspires children that may not have access to theatre and provides a crucial artistic outlet for them during the summer holidays – ensuring they are kept entertained, off the streets and out of trouble!
The Summer Project is run by The Beck Theatre on behalf of HQ Theatres Trust, Charity Registration Number: 1145989
