Houdini - World Premiere

As part of being a specialist Performing Arts School, we have commissioned the world premiere of Houdini.  This is a brand new musical written by the successful Musical Director and composer, David Tobin.  There will be performances from May 24th-28th at 19.00.  Tickets are on sale now priced at £3.

This musical follows Houdini's life.  He was a famous escapologist from the turn of the 20th Century who thrilled his audiences with death-defying tricks such as being strait-jacketed, put into a coffin, buried and emerging a few minutes later - alive!

Because Houdini was an accomplished magician, our students have not only had to learn how to perform magic tricks, but also how to escape from handcuffs and a genuine strait jacket!

This project has allowed our students to work with a professional West End MD, on their singing and performing skills.  Also, it has given them the opportunity of being in a brand new musical that has never been seen or heard before!
