Wiltshire Summer Skills - YouTubers: The Musical (2017)
Based on the internet personalities we all know and love, we’ll be playing with how the digital era has placed the freedom and power of storytelling into hands of the people.
Summer Skills Courses are fun-filled 6-day summer activity holidays providing intense, creative training for anyone aged 11-21 looking to explore their potential and develop their acting, singing and dancing abilities. You'll work with top theatre professionals and create a brand new show in just a week on these exciting residential projects. You'll also receive a masterclass in audition technique (ready for the 2018 YMT auditions) and some specialist training in both voice and singing from Sarah Hayhurst (Voice Tutor at Guildford School of Acting) and Jane Streeton (Head of Singing, Royal Academy of Dramatic Art). Summer Skills Courses do not require an audition - so get booking as it's first come, first served!
On YMT's Summer Skills Courses, young people will have the opportunity to:
- Create and perform a brand new musical
- Develop skills in acting, singing and movement
- Work with a professional artistic team
- Boost confidence, self-esteem and teamwork skills
- Gain a Grade 6 certificate in Musical Theatre in Production from Trinity College London
- Contribute to Arts Award or Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Make friends with like-minded people from different backgrounds
- Stay in residential accommodation with 24-hour pastoral care
We promise you an exciting, theatrical week full of song, dance and drama. But don't take our word for it - here's what previous course participants said:
