About the Beyond Broadway Experience…

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 spectacular professional venues in 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 holiday 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.

How do the fees work and where does the money go?

We don’t want this project to be only for the fortunate few youngsters who have a financial advantage and so have kept the cost to an absolute minimum. Looking at other projects that are on offer during the school holidays we have managed to keep the price for two full weeks of rehearsals and performances to the very minimum. Having the use of beautiful professional venues is expensive and we also need to cover the rights to the shows we produce. We must then employ a professional creative team including directors, choreographers, musical directors, musicians, lighting and sound designers, set builders and artists, costume coordinators and graphic designers. We also have professional vocal coaches, accent tutors and acting teachers on hand to help our cast be the best that they can possibly be. And not forgetting pastoral care for our young cast, through dedicated chaperones and supervisors. We also have to hire rehearsal rooms… the list goes on and on! To ensure that those taking part in our project have an experience unlike anything else on offer we also fly in fabulous guests to support us! In previous years we’ve had West End and Broadway stars working with the cast, London Casting Agents help at auditions and TV personalities pop in to support us.

The cost for one full two-week programme is £275 in 2020*
plus non-refundable audition fee of £10 per two-week programme**

* Due by 2nd December 2020 (after offer to participate). This is non-refundable under any circumstances and payment accepts your place in the cast of the show. Initial offers to take part in the project will be sent after the first round auditions at which point you need to confirm your participation. We will then invite selected people from those who have confirmed their participation to audition for specific roles if we think they are suitable. As this project is about teamwork and the ensemble nature of musical theatre, we are not interested in working with young people who only want to participate if they are cast as principal roles. The value of participation does not lie in what role you take within the process. We do not therefore invite applicants to recall auditions until they have committed to the project.

**Due on application. Why are we charging an audition fee? The administration and staffing costs of our auditions are large and are dependent on how many people we think are turning up to the audition. If we don’t have everyone show up who said they would then we have lots of extra staff and studios not being used throughout the day, which wastes money we could have allocated to more fun things like costumes, props and set. The audition fee is non-refundable under any circumstances.
