Discover how the Made at Curve production of Billy Elliot the Musical has been brought to Curve’s stage at our Theatre Day.
Hosted by our Birkbeck Trainee Director Thyrza Abrahams, this two hour session will give you an insight into the rehearsal process – exploring movement and dialogue – through demonstrations and discussions with cast members, followed by an opportunity to get a technical perspective through lighting and sound demonstrations to learn how the production team and cast came together to build this production.
The day will be brought to a close with a live, informal Q&A with some of the cast and creative team.
