Calling musical theatre enthusiasts…… HFC stages Summer Masterclasses!

9 July 2019

Are you aged between 7 and 21 with a passion for acting, singing and dancing? Have you always wanted to perform in a West End Show or just want to take your singing to the next level? If so come and join one of Hall For Cornwall’s musical theatre summer masterclasses.

HFC will be introducing new weekly Musical Monday musical theatre classes from September. Ahead of this the Get Creative team are offering young people the chance to take part in two special summer master classes between the end of July and the beginning of August. 

Musical Theatre requires performers to sing, dance and act all at the same time. Part of HFC’s successful youth programme, the master classes will be led by the creative team behind the Hall For Cornwall’s hugely successful homegrown trilogy of Christmas Shows: Simon Harvey, Richard Healey and Kim Moses.

You will get to explore the world of musical theatre, from Contemporary to Classics and you will learn great dialogue, fantastic moves and sing some brilliant songs.

The two day junior masterclass for 7 – 13 year olds will take place on Monday, 29 July and Tuesday, 30 July, ending with a performance at the end of the final day.  The classes will take place at AMATA in Falmouth between 10 am and 4pm at a total cost of £40 for the two days.

The three day senior master class for 14 – 21 year olds will take place between Wednesday, 31 July and Friday, 2 August, with a final performance at the end of the third day. Also being held at AMATA, between 10 am and 4m, the total cost is £60 for the three days.

Musical theatre performer and choreographer Kim Moses, who has worked with professional companies both in the UK an around the world, is looking forward to sharing her passion with a new generation of young people. Currently working as Hall For Cornwall’s Heritage Outreach Officer, Kim choreographed HFC’s popular Christmas show for the past three years.

“I have always loved musical theatre and in fact met my husband Richard while working on a show” said Kim.  “I grew up watching MGM musicals and am really lucky to have had the chance to work with a number of top companies.

“It will be fantastic to help young people in Cornwall explore the magic of musicals and develop the skills they need to perform on a West End stage.

We are delighted to be developing our partnership with AMATA Falmouth University and thank them very much for the gorgeous spaces to run our youth programmes.
