TIP Youth - Season 8

I’ve just started work as music director on this season of TIP Youth.  We will have two shows that run in mid-April.  Our younger group is working on “Disney’s Alice in Wonderland”, and the older group has “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”.  The music in “Beauty and the Beast” is well known and beautiful.  “Alice” is a lot quirkier and contains a rather strange version of “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah”, which I’m hoping grows on me.

I enjoy teaching ensembles and one of the wonderful things with teaching a younger group is watching how much they improve.  Everyone can improve, but the children are much more open to the concept.

    Hello beautiful

    Is there a website for this production? I’d like to help out or at least see the show but can’t find it.

    Oops. Sorry. I spoke too soon. I found the dates and won’t be here that weekend. Break a leg, though? (If you survive Two Gents.)

    Sorry to hear that you are away as it would have been great to have you on the team. I did survive Two Gents!

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd

After months of rehearsal we finally made it to the theatre.  Playing Mrs Lovett wasn’t easy, but it certainly taught me a lot and showed me that I could perform a difficult role.

It was an experience I won’t forget and I’m thankful to have been given so much support by members of the cast and crew.
