Are musicals hard work? Certainly. Are they rewarding? Absolutely!

Musicals are perfect for Schools, Colleges and Amateur Theatre because they engage audiences, cast and crew alike.

As an extra-curricular activity in schools and colleges musicals provide the perfect link between theory and post-study skills in the real world. They provide hands-on experience across all faculties – and by choosing a box office hit, can be a welcome addition to school funds…
