On Wednesday 17 June talented performers from around the North West will take part in an evening of entertainment to help support a young actor from Bury raise the funds he needs to join the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain.
The evening will consist of performances from the North West Stage School, Bury College performing arts course, North West Theatre Arts Company , local singers, comedians, bands and many more talented performers all coming together for a spectacular night of entertainment.
Leo Flanagan is a young actor from Bury who started out in The Met's Youth Theatre, who has been accepted into the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. He has been invited to take part in a one month intensive training course down in London this August, a fantastic experience and one that will help him learn and grow as a performer.
The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain is a world-class leading youth arts organisation. They were established in 1956 as the first youth theatre in the world and over the past 57 years have been nurturing the talent of hundreds of thousands of young people. Past alumni of the National Youth Theatre include: Orlando Bloom, Matt Smith, Matt Lucas, Daniel Craig, Helen Mirren, Rosamund Pike, Chitwetel Ejiofor, Jessica Hynes, Colin Firth and many more.
To raise the funds needed for this experience and with the help of the Met Theatre, Leo is putting on an evening of entertainment with some of the talented singers/actors/comedians he has performed with over the past few years.
Supporters can donate to support Leo here.
The show will last approximately 2 hours 15 minutes.
