Every year Woking Youth Theatre produces a full-scale musical at The Rhoda McGaw Theatre.
Musical theatre is a massive industry, pulling audiences where straight plays struggle to get ‘bums on seats’; in 2017 the West End total revenue from musical theatre was more than double that of straight plays.
A good grounding in musical theatre, therefore, is very important for anyone looking for a career in the performing arts.
It’s also a lot of fun.
You don’t need to be a great singer or a great dancer to take part. All you need is the enthusiasm and we’ll make you look and sound great as a member of the chorus.
If the limelight is more your thing we will take your raw talent and equip you with the skills to turn in a fantastic performance.
Or if you would prefer to work behind the scenes we have many roles available.
Just some of the roles required to put on a great show:
- lead performer
- supporting performer
- stage manager
- stage crew
- set designer
- lighting operator
- sound mixer
- musical director
Our team of ex Woking Youth Theatre professionals have worked in TV, film and theatre and have the skills and experience to create a show any company would be proud of, as demonstrated by the amazing feedback on our first show, Little Shop of Horrors.
