YOUR VOICE is a new and exciting performance opportunity project between Thurrock Music Services and the Arts Team at the Thameside Theatre in Grays, for young singers in Thurrock who are between the ages of 11 and 18 years of age. It will give them a chance to develop their stagecraft skills by performing Live at the Thameside Theatre, Orsett Road, Grays.
The first of these exciting opportunities is on Thursday 7 October 2010 at 7.30pm at the Thameside Theatre and will also feature special guest star Drew Levi Huntsman (Festival4Stars London Region Winner and Overall National Runner Up).
Your Voice Musical Director from Thurrock Music Services, Shana Elliott-Hayers said: ‘We want to see our performers grow and develop their skill base, build confidence in their abilities and above all enjoy the experience of performing live on stage.’
The event will be filmed by the team from YourThurrock.com and will be made available online soon after the event, which is a great developmental step for any budding singer.
On the night, local compere Luke Coldham will open the show with a song and is very excited about the whole event. Luke said: ‘I am very excited to be part of the show, it will be a great experience for everyone taking part and I hope we attract a lot of support and attention!’
This will be the first show of this exciting new project but each show will be supported by a special guest who will offer support and encouragement to the performers and will be performing themselves. It is hoped that the project will attract many ‘up and coming’ acts from in and around Thurrock and maybe have a few famous faces along the way!
Each show will feature 10 acts and will take place once every school term. Application forms to appear at each show are available from Thurrock Music Services and the slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
There is a £10 application fee to perform and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will also receive three complimentary tickets for your performance.
Further tickets are available for each performance from the Thameside Theatre Box Office on Tel: 0845 300 5264 and are priced at £3.00 each. The closing date for this performance on 7 October 2010 is 30 September 2010.
