Matthew Bourne's New Adventures are looking for 16-19yo for a major new project

Recommended Posts

It as a no for my daughter too. She was not surprised as she felt they didn’t really look at her on the day so perhaps just not right for this project. Looking forward to finding out what they are actually doing!

It was also a no for my daughter yesterday. Who wasn’t surprised as she had said on the day she was by far the youngest auditioning. Loved the day and embraced the experience and skills learnt especially as we were well outside of location and appreciated the opportunity to even reach the finals. Will keep an eye out for the production and maybe take the opportunity to buy some tickets at one of the many venues. 🙆‍♀️

Very pleased to report that the MB/NA company have been able to be flexible and are rearranging the July intensive dates in Birmingham so that they no longer conflict with Elmhurst’s summer show!

Huge relief for my DS - now it’s full steam ahead to book hotels and leave etc!

Grrrrr - If that is the case Bluebird then the LEA are quite utterly WRONG!!!!  What is it with them?  ARe they totally incompetent (don't answer that one, you know them as well as I do)

 

They don't need a licence after the last Friday in June of Year 11 (so some kids won't even be 16).  This is the legal definition of compulsory school age in Engladn & Wales (not Scotland) and the legislation clearly refers to compulsory school age.  However anyone who turns 16 in that year definately needs a performance licence up to that day.  The NIECC would be interested in this I bet.

You are absolutely right.  As one who has completed both exemption and full licences for children the info from your LEA is wrong.  X

I notice that the casting for this has just been announced.  There are several young people that dd knows who are either current or past members of her school who have been cast including one who was in her year at lower school and one who is in her year now.  Huge congratulations to them.

I’ve tried very hard to copy the link to the casting announcement but with no luck!

My DD made the finals but was sadly unsuccessful (youngest by far) however she was recently delighted to receive free tickets to see the production at the venue she auditioned. Sadly it’s now not practical to accept but still appreciated the very kind thought by the company. 🥰
