Following the phenomenal successes of Singin’ In The Rain, Boogie Nights and West Side Story, The Alexandra’s annual Stage Experience is back and better than ever, this time taking on the smash-hit musical Fame!

Applications will be opening in January 2020 for performer and technical places, with auditions and technical interviews taking place in the Spring. Please check back here for further information about applying.


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!
