The Musical Theatre Project
Open Rehearsal and Celebration Evening
Friday 27th March, 7.00pm till 9.00pm
Carperby Village Institute DL8 4DD

During 2014 we have been awarded funding to run a pilot project providing workshops focussing on Musical Theatre. Around twenty young people aged 11 to 20 years old have been involved in taster sessions and regular workshops. The idea came about when young performers in Hawes asked if there was other things they could do during the year when they were not taking part in the local pantomime.

Local musician Simon Chorley, 15yrs, has been using his knowledge of Sibelius notation software to arrange parts for the instrumentalists involved “musical scores are often written for specific instruments and we wanted everyone to be able to play and enjoy the music.” he said “it has been exciting to see how electric guitar will sound with French Horn. My favourite arrangement so far is for the song I’m a believer from Shrek”.

To celebrate the work of the group over the last year we are holding an open rehearsal and celebration evening on Friday 27th March from 7.00-9.00pm at Carperby Village Institute. We will be working on songs from Musicals such as Jersey Boys, Lion King, Oliver, Annie, Les Miserables and Blood Brothers to name a few. There will be a mixture of ensemble and solo performances as well as chance for you to take part if you would like to. All welcome, refreshments available.
