July 14 2015.
Multi-award-winning community charity youth theatre group, Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors, has been chosen to be part of the National Theatre connections programme for 2016, supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
They will perform one of 12 specially commissioned musicals or plays at the Barn Theatre in Seaford in February 2016 before transferring to either the Chichester Festival Theatre or Hawth Theatre in Crawley, where theatre teams and the NT Connections Director will help them transition the show onto a larger professional stage and perform to of hundreds of audience members.
Director, Paula Woolven, said; "this amazing news arrived on our fourth anniversary and goes a long way in recognising the incredible journey our community youth theatre has made in such a short time, thanks to the hard work and dedication of all our volunteers and supporters. Our motto is confidence, creativity and consideration for others and we see this week in, week out in our young membership. I'm delighted they have been given this amazing opportunity and I'm sure they'll make the most of it."
