Spotlight on musicals is a production that includes performers of all ages. It will have 3 rehearsals a week where people are given a focus and an opportunity to socialise after 18 months of isolation. It is a compilation show that looks at a range of musicals. The project is designed to bring in people from all walks of life and shares a passion for musicals. It will also focus on improving mental health through physical activities and social events.

What we'll deliver:

  • Pay for theatre rental
  • Produce a full production
  • Pay theatre technicians

Why it's a great idea:

The project will bring joy to the audience who come to watch the production. More importantly, it will bring a sense of community that individuals need to help reintegrate into society after a difficult year for mental health. It will give people a drive and focus as well a routine. Physical exercise will help endorphins for healthy body and mind. It’s also the opportunity to learn new skills.

Steps to get it done:

  • Beginning rehearsals
  • Learning numbers
  • Sourcing costumes
  • Dress rehearsals
  • Get into theatre
  • Performances

We will aim to bring in volunteers who wish to learn the technicalities of back stage and giving students opportunities.
