The Talentz are one of the few Musical Theatre companies who regularly produce their own professional standard, live stage productions in major public venues, including professional theatres and festivals with live music. The foundation of everything we do lies in the growth and development of our students, to help them find and progress their skills, by giving them the opportunity to perform live in exciting venues. We also provide opportunities to learn and experience working in the non performing areas of our productions, including stage management, sound & lighting, set & costume design & construction and wardrobe & makeup, all under the experienced supervision of industry professionals.
The Talentz produce a multitude of live performances throughout the year including;
- Spring Production – our annual big musical, set in a professional theatre featuring a live professional band, full lighting and sound design, intricate set and costumes, giving everyone involved a full production experience, providing them insight into every aspect of preparing and putting on a full professional show.
- Panto – our January pantomime, set in a professional theatre, featuring a huge range of our student performers from as young as 4 years old, featuring a live band, extravagant costumes and huge amounts of fun!
- Edinburgh Fringe Festival – The Talentz are a major attraction every year at the world famous Festival, the world’s largest Arts festival. As well as putting on our own popular productions, we take our students for a memorable week, to enjoy the festival’s environment of culture and fun, as well as working hard on our own show!
- Showcase – our annual celebration of the years work of our students, hosted at the EM Forster Theatre, featuring a live professional band, full production including lighting and sound design.
- Local Festivals – our students perform at a range of local festivals and venues throughout the year, often supporting incredible charities and communities.
