Adjudicators are scouring the country looking for 300 entertainers to star in new musicals to be staged by Youth Musical Theatre this summer.

Auditions for 11 to 21-year- olds will be held at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre on January 30. The three-hour audition is a group workshop where a director, a musical director and choreographer will score participants on ther acting, singing, dancing and ability to work as a team.

Successful candidates will be placed on a residential project to create a new piece of music theatre, which includes YEAR 3000 by Busted’s James Bourne and Elliot Davis, an adaptation of The Great Gatsby and women’s boxing epic Fight Like a Girl plus shows in Belfast, Plymouth and Aberdeen!
