Operatic society reaching out to kids
7:20am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
A POPULAR operatic society is launching a musical theatre group just for kids.
Gary and Ann Sullivan, who run and own the Thurrock Operatic Society which has been staging musical pieces in Thurrock for years, are now launching TOPS Kids.
The first production, the Pirates of Penzance, will be in April with auditions for the show starting on Thursday, September 19.
Pirates is a funny musical and will feature a new up-tempo score especially devised for youngsters to perform to. The costumes will be colourful and the set pirate-like.
The intention of the production and of TOPS Kids is to offer budding musical theatre performers a fun-filled chance to perform on stage.
Gary and Ann, who have won numerous awards for their work with young actors, are on the lookout for youngsters aged between 10 and 16, keen on being a part of the exciting project.
The boys will play pirates and Keystone cops while the girls will play the daughters of a rather whacky Major General.
There are both chorus parts and lead character roles up for grabs. Auditions will take place at the United Reformed Church, in Bradleigh Avenue, Grays.
