+ Musical Theatre

This specialist lesson takes the form of a full scale musical theatre production. Every year we buy the rights to a well-known show and then assemble our magnificent cast! We want singers, dancers, actors and all-rounders to make our shows fantastic! In May 2018, we staged 3 performances of High School Musical at The John Godber Theatre, Pontefract. It was a huge success. The cast were amazing and the parents loved seeing their children in a full professional show! Lights, sound, set, costume, special F/X…you name it, 412 delivered it. This year’s lesson will see us stage the brilliant musical comedy Legally Blonde in May 2019. This lesson is ideal for those students who want to perform in a BIG show and is open to school years 1 to 11. Students must be committed to coming each week and due to the nature of casting, this lesson will stop taking new students by October 2018. Get in touch for more details and get in the cast!
