Stage Experience is open to anyone aged 9 - 24 and able to commit two weeks of their summer holiday to putting on a musical! Performer participants will work alongside our industry professional director, choreographer and musical director to put on a full-scale production of Fame The Musical in just two weeks! For those interested to take part behind the scenes in; lighting, sound, wardrobe, flys, stage management and more, we are also pleased to be able to offer a limited amount of technical spaces.
It is a unique opportunity to make new friends, hone your skills in the real world fast-paced theatre environment, and ultimately experience what it is like to take part in a large-scale production on a par with west-end/touring musicals. The fortnight culminates in 5 fully-staged performances at The Alexandra, complete with our professional orchestra, set, lighting, sound, costumes... the works!

In 2018, the venue underwent an extensive refurbishment and reverted to its original name, The Alexandra. The theatre is a valuable contributor to culture within Birmingham and the West Midlands, presenting first-rate musicals, drama, comedy and more.
