All through the summer holidays, day workshops will be taking part at Market Chambers, Basingstoke, based around well-known musicals. Award-winning director, Nick Brannam, will be leading these workshops, and registration is now open for all aged 7 to 17.
Cost is £10 per workshop, which will run from 9am until 5pm. We also offer a discounted price of £60 if 7 or more are booked at the same time per person. The only exception to this price is the Soloist audition for the Charity Show – this will be £5 for a workshop and audition because it is only 4 hours long.
Pre-registration is required as each workshop needs a minimum of 10 people so to guarantee your space, please register with your form and fee to reach us two working days before the chosen workshop (ie by Wednesday 20th if wishing to attend on the 22nd, etc)
The Over 55s Forum is a charity show that will be performed on October 1st 2016 which BATS Next Gen have been asked to produce. This is usually a sell-out show held in the afternoon in the presence of The Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane. Children taking part in any of the workshops will be eligible to take part in the show, with attendance at the rehearsal on the 2nd September a requirement. If they would like to be considered as a soloist, there are auditions on the 19th August. The show will also see performances by BATS Next Gen Avenue Q School Edition cast, BAOS Limelight, Basingstoke Academy of Dancing, M&M Academy and Footsteps Dance School.
For more information about any of the workshops please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
