Leeway Productions, in partnership with Valleys Kids are expanding Academi Leeway, a grassroots musical theatre academy for young people aged 14–25 – and we want to hear from you.
Calling the young people of Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Love musicals? Want to sing new songs that have been written just for you? Want to perform in some musicals you’ve created with us?
Here is another brilliant opportunity to create brand new mini musicals and perform them live at The Factory Porth and Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Rhondda Cynon Taf in 2024.
Leeway Productions, in partnership with Valleys Kids are reigniting Academi Leeway, a grassroots musical theatre academy for young people aged 14–25 – in Porth, and we want to hear from you.
Such was the success of our first two projects, we are now thrilled to be supported by Arts Council Wales to roll out this new programme of work.
We are looking for young people who want to develop their creative skills, who are interested in creating or performing musical theatre, and who are willing to push the boundaries. We welcome singers, musicians, composers, writers, designers, poets, beat boxers, artists or performers of any kind. No previous experience is needed – just a passion for being part of something new that belongs to you.
