If you dream of performing on a West End stage you may have the chance to make that come true with a new show.
Singers, dancers and actors are invited to audition for a one-off production at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Haymarket.
Havering College of Further and Higher Education is producing the show about a youth club community centre and the battle to save it from closure.
Synergy Street – The Musical will be produced by the college’s music lecturer, Peter Dayson.
Auditions will be taking place at the college’s Ardleigh Green campus at the end of this month and will be open to students and children aged from six to 22.
It is the follow-up to April’s production at the same theatre of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Mr Dayson said: “The production of Joseph was the most successful we have staged.
“It is a hard act to follow and so I decided to do something completely fresh by writing a new musical.
“The title of the show is Synergy Street because synergy is all about working together.”
Mr Dayson added: “With a cast of 200, a dog, 12 new songs and a real feel-good factor, it should be an evening to remember when we take our show into the West End.”
