Beck Youth Theatre get set to hit the stage
By Holly Manj
Budding performers of Hillingdon’s Beck Youth Theatre are starring in the musical ‘Our House’ at The Beck Theatre on April 15-16.
Young actors and singers from Hillingdon schools will show off their talents in a show set to the hits of 80s pop sensation Madness.
Its cast members range from 11-19 years old and have been rehearsing for months for the show.
The script, written by Tim Firth the writer of Calendar Girls, has received much critical acclaim and an Olivier award in 2003.
BYT Chairman Damien Sandys said: “I think it’s important not to underestimate youth theatre.
“With the knock-out cast we have I can promise a stunning show which is unmissable.”
He added the choreographer, West End performer Grant Murphy, who is currently working on Shrek The Musical, created ‘dazzling routines’.
The group also received a good luck letter from actor Michael Jibson who played the lead when the show opened in the West End.
