Stafford Gatehouse Youth Theatre (SGYT) have an exciting opportunity for 14-16 year olds to participate in theatrical workshops lead by a professional West End actress. There will be a total of four workshops on Monday evenings at 5.30 – 7.30pm throughout June as taster sessions for new members to try SGYT ahead of the new Autumn term. Each two hour workshop will feature songs, scenes and dance routines from four different West End musicals:
1 June: Wicked
8 June: We Will Rock You
15 June: Legally Blonde
22 June: Sweeney Todd
The workshops will be lead by Katie Kerr, whose professional debut was as Chiffon in the award winning production of Little Shop Of Horrors at the Menier Chocolate Factory alongside Sheridan Smith, later transferring to the West End. She then went on to star in Fat Pig, as Helen, directed by Neil La Bute also in the West End and has subsequently gone on to perform in several other plays and musicals such as A Chorus of Disapproval (UK Tour), Stepping Out (UK Tour), TABOO (Brixton
Clubhouse) and Wicked (UK Tour).
Katie most recently has been seen performing alongside Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel in the English National Opera's production of Sweeney Todd at London's Coliseum. She also appeared in BBC 1 drama What Remains.
Each session is £6 and pre-booking is essential as places are limited. Places can be pre-booked at the box office from Tuesday 6 May, where a membership form will be given. Any members who do not return the membership form will not be able to join. Places must be booked by Friday 30 May.
