Michael will be supported in his work with an Assistant Director as well as four West End performers.
Admin & front of house tasks will be lead by the venue’s Creative Learning team, who will also be responsible for ensuring the security and health & safety of the students throughout. All staff involved in this project are fully DBS checked.
Each day participants will get the opportunity to learn routines from West End performers & explore shows such as Shrek, Hairspray, Legally Blonde & Mary Poppins. Every session will end with a Q & A with a West End performer.
