Grand Opera House announces Summer Youth Production scheme. Closing date February 25, 2022

Foer the first time in three years Belfast’s Grand Opera House’s Summer Youth Project scheme is soon to begin auditions for this year’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance.

After its multi million pound restoration, and following the break due to the pandemic, the Grand Opera House is proud to see its annual Summer Youth Production scheme back guiding young people between the ages of 10 and 18-years-old and working with some of the industry’s top professionals including a director, musical director, choreographer and the technical team.

Up to 100 young people will rehearse and work in a professional setting from July 10, 2022 for two weeks with four performances from July 22, 2022 – July 24, 2022. For those not wanting the glare of performing some position behind the scenes will be available for those aged 16 -18-years-old to work with the youth tech crew.

Grand Opera House Chief Executive Ian Wilson said: “The Summer Youth Production has established itself as one of the biggest, best and most enjoyable schemes of its kind anywhere in the UK. The Pirates of Penzance will be the first Summer Youth Production to be staged since the Grand Opera House reopened following its stunning restoration, and it will be an incredible experience to rehearse and perform in this beautiful theatre.

“No previous acting or singing experience is needed and registration for anyone wanting to audition closes on February 25, 2002, so make sure you don’t miss the boat.”
