'Billy the Kid' Superstar Charlie and his Teacher take to the Stage to Raise Funds.

Submitted by Abby on

Our very own Peter Edge and one of his Your Space pupils are performing in a fundraising gig on Sunday 27th June! As a new member of the UKs National Youth Music Theatre, Charlie is encouraged to fundraise for other children to have bursaries and to help pay towards the cost of theatre productions.

He is being brilliantly supported with his band Crows & Arrows and Peter. After 10 hours of online auditions, Charlie has been offered the part of Billy in Billy The Kid with the National Youth Music Theatre company!  He will be performing in August 2021 at the Michael Croft Theatre, Dulwich, UK.  

Charlie was encouraged to audition for the theatre company back in March which initially required 3 self tapes of him singing. Round 2 was a 5 hour workshop audition having learnt various scrips, songs and dances for Billy the Kid and a new commission called Henrietta. He was delighted to be asked to final rounds which required self tapes of more singing and dancing followed by 2 separate audition workshops.  During these he was tested not only for what he had prepared but also impromptu performance skills in singing, dancing and acting.  Whilst a huge amount of hard work and effort, Charlie says he loved the auditions as they were both fun and relaxing!   He is now learning the script and preparing the dances and songs ready for the 2 week residential rehearsals in Seven Oaks and a week in London just before the 4 night show is staged.  

Here's a little teaser to get you in the mood....
