Young Vic Taking Part is creating a community show in response to Wings, and we are holding auditions on Saturday 29 July for people interested in taking part. The show has been created through a series of workshops with people who experience different neurological conditions, and director Thomas Martin, composer Joseph Atkins and writer Deanna Rodger are creating a musical inspired by the people they’ve met.
We are looking for people to be part of a community choir that will perform the show at the Young Vic, and at the centres we have collaborated with on the workshops. It will be a fun, informal workshop audition, and no prior singing experience is necessary.
Rehearsals: Tuesday evenings and Saturday daytimes from Tuesday 29 August
Technical rehearsals: Monday 30 October – Wednesday 1 November
Performances at the Young Vic: Thursday 2 – Saturday 4 November
If you are interested in auditioning, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, date of birth, a contact telephone number by midday on Friday 7 July. Please let us know if you have any prior singing experience (but don’t worry if you don’t!).
