Summer Youth Project
The Palace Theatre Summer Youth Project is now in its 13th year and in 2020, young performers will be lighting up the sky by taking part in the unforgettable Fame – The Musical!
Set in New York’s elite High School of the Performance Arts, Fame -The Musical follows the hopes and dreams, highs and lows of aspiring stars in their quest for success. The show does not shy away from complex issues as the young performers come to terms with the real cost of career in show business. This will be reflected in our production and therefore we would like to make you aware of this prior to our audition process.
The Summer Youth Project is open to anyone aged 9 to 19 and is a great opportunity to work with a professional creative team. It brings over 80 young people together for a two week project which culminates in six performances at the Palace Theatre. Opportunities are also available for 14 to 19 year olds to work with the Technical Team on the production. Participants get to learn about the theatre, make new friends, have fun and perform a stunning production in a professional theatre environment. The friendships, experiences and memories that are formed during the project are wonderfully unique and last a lifetime. The project is the product of a lot of hard work and time, and it is only through the commitment of everyone involved that the final result is so spectacular.
Auditions will be held on Sunday 26 April 2020 at the Cliffs Pavilion.
