Little Mermaid Jr Success

Our “Apprentices” debut production ‘The Little Mermaid Jr’ has been a massive success. It has been such pleasure working with such an incredible set of youngsters who, for some, were treading the boards for the first time. We are so proud of the development and achievements of this group over the last 12 months and can’t wait for the next project!

Be sure to check out our Gallery for images from the show and NorthWestEnd who have so many kind words for these talented kids.

The Pirate Queen Sets Sail For The Last Time

Claude-Michel Schönberg Visits

As we prepare for our July production of The Pirate Queen we have been lucky enough to welcome the musical mind behind the show, Claude-Michel Schönberg, to our rehearsal for a special workshop. A truly inspiring night saw the cast put through their paces by the composer who’s other works include the iconic Miss Saigon and our previous summer production, Les Misérables. The cast and team have been left truly inspired by Claude-Michel’s visit and can not wait to bring this incredible production to the stage.

The Pirate Queen runs 19th-22nd July. Tickets are available from Z-arts box office.

WELL DONE RICCARDO!
