Immerse yourself and celebrate a spectacular musical and performing arts extravaganza at this year’s show.
For example, young performers can compete for one of three age group trophies; Y1-Y6; Y7-Y9 and Y9-Y11.
And the show organisers promise nobody’s forgotten because even if you just simply take to the stage you will get your very own certificate for participating!
The expert adjudicator is Clara Darcy who has performed as a singer, dancer, actress and musician in Oldham and across the north of England.
Recently she has played in James & the Giant Peach, Miss Nightingale and Forever Young and earlier she took a lead role in the Coliseum’s staging of “Chicago”. Later Clara was touring – to rave reviews – for her part as Tara Fitzgerald in “Brassed Off”. This year she has been playing Inga in The Demand.
At previous shows we have had a big and enthusiastic take up of performers from MAHDLO, Dobcross Training Band, Oldham Music Centre’s Electric Guitar Groups and the Caroline Winder School of Dance among others and we are sure it will take off just as well this year.
Jubacana, a youth-led, fusion music and performance project based in Oldham, and the Saddleworth and Oldham Rock Choir will be adding to the musical feast, but the Young Performers Showcase looks set to be an outstanding event.
At this stage there is room for youngsters who want to showcase their talents, which could include individual and small groups or bands presenting instrumental, vocal or active e.g. dance performances.
