Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Can’t recommend EDA enough!
Really never wanted to be letting my son go off at just gone 16 but I can’t tell you how pleased we are that the decision was made.
What a 6th form!
Fantastic!

Re: Local Theatre Group Opportunities

Wow what a voice! =D> I agree with you, my son has had some amazing am dram roles, in really very professional productions, Seussical, Honk, Hairspray...loved them all and he made lots of contacts. Kids may not fit the strict height criteria for the West end but if they love to perform, there are SO...

Re: My IP has been banned

Me too
If I log in during a work break on my mainframe it’s permanently banned.
Not too much of an issue but wondered why.
Admin is on a retreat at the moment but I’m sure she will take a look then she’s back.

Hi all, hoping you lovely people can help! My DS is hoping to train in MT from 2020 he's 16 so is looking at either the 6th form route followed by degree or the Trinity Diploma. He is a very strong singer and a good actor but never formally trained in dance. Although not a natural dancer, he can mo...

Re: Best time to apply for Sept 2020

My DS applied for the earliest ones he could Mainly because he gets a few heavy colds over winter so if he was ill, there was half a chance of being able to rebook onto a later date. I can certainly recommend applying for early dates for Arts Ed, they accept and offer as each audition date happens, ...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

Thank you Riverdancefan. I probably shouldn’t have named kids, apologies if I made you or anyone else uncomfortable. I think the easiest way to explain things is that with the audition only workshops the students generally audition to join them and then audition again for the solos. No problem at a...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

A lot of the girls in DD’s Spirit group are working professionally as well - of the 12 in her current group, 5 of them are cast in west end roles at the moment. My DD has recently finished a WE run and is currently filming. So, quite often you can work towards a piece, have a main solo and then fin...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

This is an interesting conversation for me at the moment as my DD is currently away with BYMT and she has a very small role in the show and says she has done nothing for the last two days. I’m a little annoyed because we’ve paid £1750 for her to take part and she’s doesn’t seem to be learning as mu...
