Legally Blonde Review

February’s production of “Legally Blonde The Musical” was by far one of our most challenging productions to date. A fabulous experience, the show was a complete sell out, thrilling audiences every night.

We are thrilled to share the North West End official 5 Star Review.

North West End Review

West End “Elle Woods” drops in.

West End Star, Carley Stenson (“Elle” Legally Blonde, “Fiona” Shrek, “Lady in the Lake” Spamalot) kindly dropped in to rehearsal on Friday night to oversee our preparations for Legally Blonde as well answer questions and offer advice to the cast.

What a lovely, inspiring evening we had as Carley shared everything from vocal health advice to hilarious moments behind the scenes of the west end production. We previewed a few scenes including “So Much Better” and the hilarious “Gay or European” which she clearly enjoyed.

Thank you for taking time out to see us Carley and for your lovely words of encouragement for the cast.

 

NODA Success

We are pleased to announce that “Les Miserables” received 4 Awards at the annual NODA North West District 1 Awards Gala Dinner.

Please join us in congratulating cast members Cameron Hall “Best Lead in a Youth Production” for Javert and Riccardo Atherton “Best Supporting Role in a Youth Production” for Gavroche. We couldn’t be prouder of their achievement!

Our very own Musical Director, Kimberly Holden, picked up the gong for “Best Production Team Member” as well as Les Miserables being named “Best Youth Production 2016″ at the prestigious event.

MMY 2nd Anniversary Concert

In October this year we begun our third year of theatre excellence with a celebration concert to a sell out audience at Oasis Academy Media City. The concert was a huge success, boasting a varied programme and Musical Theatre favourites performed by our incredibly talented youth cast. From Calamity Jane to Hamilton, and My Fair Lady to Finding Neverland the audience were treated to both spectacular ensemble performances and delicate solo numbers. It also gave us the opportunity to welcome our newest recruits as well as being the maiden performance for our brand new “Apprentices” group. Made up of 8-11 year olds this group is already shaping up to the fabulous standards of Manchester Musical Youth.
