Let Douglas Youth Arts Centre rock your world 28 April 2011

MEMBERS of Douglas Youth Arts Centre are set to perform the ‘funkiest teen musical ever’ at the Gaiety Theatre on Sunday 8th May.

A talented cast of young people from up and down the Island have been preparing for months for Disney’s Camp Rock: The Musical.

Camp Rock is a 2008 Disney Channel movie telling the story of a shy but aspiring musician who struggles to be able to attend a music camp and then, with her beautiful voice, wins the heart of a pop star. The film and its sequel, Camp Rock 2, have a huge teenage following. The stage musical is based on both films.

‘Musical theatre is one of the most popular aspects of the performing arts and, with the creation of TV programmes like Glee, singing has really come into its own,’ said Fiona Helleur, Head of Youth Arts with the Department of Education and Children.
‘We have excellent staff to run the show and an amazing cast of young people, all of whom are very skilled and are looking forward to the challenge of presenting this show.
‘Everyone has put in so much effort and I couldn’t be more proud of how our first big production as a Youth Arts Centre, since we were renamed, is coming together,’ Fiona said. ‘Every element of the musical, from the cast to sound and lightning to scenery and backstage, involves young people. This truly is their production.
‘We are thrilled to have this opportunity to be the first group in the Island to present Camp Rock,’ Fiona continued. ‘It’s a great opportunity for the members of the Youth Arts Centre to showcase their talents in such a successful and popular show and I can’t wait to see them rock the Gaiety on 8th May.’

There are performances at 3pm and 7pm. Tickets are on sale at the Villa Marina and Gaiety Theatre box office on 600555 or http://www.gov.im/villagaiety/ priced £10 for adults and £7.50 for under 12s.
