THE ANGUS Centre for Performing Arts are to prepare and stage a musical in just six days!
The show ‘Back to the 80s’ will be performed in the Webster Memorial Theatre on Saturday, July 30 as the climax to an intensive summer school where students aged 12 to 25 will rehearse daily, developing their acting, singing and dancing skills.
The show will provide a theatre debut for many of the young cast who are already excited by the prospect of performing in a professional theatre with a full stage set, lighting, sound and live band.
Fiona Forbes, principal of ACPA and choreographer for the show commented: “This is an extremely exciting project for everyone involved.
“It’s the first time ACPA have tackled a full scale musical and some might say we are mad to do it in only a week but this concept has been proven to work in other towns and cities across the country and we are extremely excited about it.”
The show follows the story of Corey Feldman and his friends as they struggle with the highs and lows of High School and includes many well known 80’s tunes including ‘Footloose’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ and ‘I’ve Had The Time of My Life’.
Any young people interested in taking part in the summer school should contact drama teacher Caroline Dey on email@example.com or phone 01241 853788 for further details or to request an application form.
Tickets, priced £8, for the July 30 production are on sale now from the Webster Theatre box office.
