We cannot wait to get started this term at YT with soooo much to look forward to this year already. But first a quick look back……….

Open auditions will be announced soon along with our popular invitations to local choirs to perform on the day! The workshop days will focus on singing technique, audition preparation characterisation culminating in a fully staged and costumed performance on the Friday in the main theatre.
August 24 – 28 The Addams Family – A Musical Comedy Benenden School
In its typical creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky fashion, the ghoulish Addams family is visiting the graveyard. An annual gathering of all family members, living dead, and undecided, and celebrate what it is to be an Addams. However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal’ boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance. As Wednesday admits that she is falling in love, Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley worry about her changing ways. As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues. The two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined. The Addams Family Broadway Musical tells the story of love and friendship through adversity. Topped off with a comical and macabre yet poignant spin.
As soon as you sign up you will receive additional material through the website including music and librettos.
Numbers and ‘help days’ will be offered so that we can cast both shows and make sure we acknowledge everyone’s talents. We will also be offering the Easter Through The Decades to local choirs again for the performances on the Friday.
