The theatre has already cast Reece McMahon as Will Parker and Conor Mellor as Curley McLain, both from York; Caitlin Galgie from Great Ayton in Middlesbrough will play the part of Laurey and Sophia Bonini from Harrogate in the role of Ado Annie. The cast spent an afternoon at Piglets Adventure Farm Park with the new-born lambs and piglets doing photos to publicise the show.

The first show ever written by the Rodgers and Hammerstein team guarantees to be another blockbuster for our stage experience team, and has something for everyone – a good story, big songs, catchy tunes, dance routines, and love interests – all of which will showcase the enormous wealth of talent in our cast and crew”.  Clare O’Connor, Producer.

Stage Experience is an intensive two week project for ten to 21 year olds, who will be directed by professional director and choreographer Louise Denison, who will be joined by the musical director Adam Laird.

The project will run from Saturday 23 July, culminating in four performances from Thursday 4 to Saturday 1 August. As well as budding actors, Stage Experience welcomes young and aspiring theatre technicians, who will work with the professional team on sound, lighting, set, props and costumes.

Be sure not to be miss what has been billed as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most innovative show – on for 3 days only!
