**APPLICATIONS for participation in BBE 2018 are now CLOSED**
Looking for something exceptional to do with your summer? Want to experience what it feels like to be a professional musical theatre actor, singer, dancer or performer? Following the huge success of BRING IT ON in 2016 and FAME – THE MUSICAL in 2017 The Beyond Broadway Experience will be back at the fabulous King’s Theatre in Edinburgh in 2018. And this time it will be bigger and better than ever – with an all-time classic, THE WIZARD OF OZ!
BBE2018 runs from 7th July to 19th July 2018, with three performances at the King’s Theatre on 20th and 21st July.
The Beyond Broadway Experience gives you the unique opportunity to work with the team at Beyond Broadway Productions and professional directors, choreographers, musical directors, theatre designers and performers to put on a huge show in the beautiful King’s Theatre, Edinburgh. Working intensively in rehearsals for the two weeks running up to opening night, cast are put through their paces by our professional creative and production teams. You get to work with some of the best in the industry – and have a lot of fun along the way!
The Beyond Broadway Experience two-week rehearsal period is so much more than simply putting on a show or going to a summer club. Alongside an intensive rehearsal schedule, there are social activities organised by fabulous chaperones for the evenings and weekends, question-and-answer sessions with international performers, a photoshoot by a professional photographer to get that perfect shot for the programme, meetings with costume, hair and makeup designers, not to mention press interviews and promotional events… If you want to know what it feels like to be in a pro show, you really can’t afford to miss this opportunity.
New for 2018 – Munchkins stream!
Because this year is going to be BIGGER than ever, we’re going to include something smaller! This year we are looking for an ensemble of Munchkins aged between 8 and 12 years old to take on a very important role in the BBE 2018 production. The Munchkins stream consists of one whole week of summer school classes in musical theatre, concluding with a guest appearance in THE WIZARD OF OZ. The Munchkins stream runs from 16th – 19th July 2018 with performances on 20th and 21st July.
