About the Event
Producing Skills [THU 20 MAY, 10am - 1pm]
Hear from one who knows the industry from every angle. Natalie Gilhome performed in countless musicals before investing her time on the other side of the footlights as Dance Captain, Resident Director, Agent, Casting Director and Producer. Natalie has worked on musicals all over the world from Athens to Asia before settling in New York where she was employed as a producer for many years. In this workshop, she brings her extensive knowledge to an interactive conversation about how to produce a show for success!
Navigating Copyright [FRI 21 MAY, 10am - 1pm]
If you are wanting to produce a piece of existing theatre, at any level, then you must know about copyright and who better to learn from than those who control it?
This panel discussion was a sell out in our 2019 program, so we are thrilled to invite back our three industry leaders in the field, Stuart Hendricks from Music Theatre International, Kim Ransley from Origin and David Spicer from David Spicer Productions.
If you are thinking of producing a musical, chances are you’ll be needing to talk to one of these three and through this panel, you can find out all you need to know about the business side to launching a show.
Music as Storytelling [FRI 21 May, 2pm - 5pm]
This class is a must for those interested in how music is used to tell stories in theatre. Acclaimed Musical Director, Michael Tyack and guests will reveal how to be a detective when it comes to music, how to uncover the clues, how to make them work for you in performance and how to use these clues practically when shaping a song for performance.
A chance to be in the room with one of the best!
Costume and Character [SAT 22 May, 2.30pm - 5.30pm]
Whether you are a budding designer or a director, the art of costume design and making is inherent in visually representing a story.
Costume reveals character, assists in establishing time and place and is a central part of creating the world of a show. This is part workshop, part interview where everyone is given opportunity to learn from the best in Anthony Phillips, costume maker for countless musicals including visual extravaganzas, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘The Lion King’ and ‘Sunset Boulevard’.
