Swindon's Wyvern Theatre has announced that its Summer Youth Project performance this year will be the Wizard of Oz.

Applications are now open for the Wyvern's 2023 Summer Youth Project production of the Wizard of Oz.

Those aged between 9 - 21 years of age, interested in getting involved can apply before Saturday 8 April. 

The Summer Youth Project team say it is the perfect way for young individuas to get a taste for the world of musical theatre. This year's project will yet again allow 200 young people to produce and perform five full-scale performances with the help of a professional creative team and live band.

The Wyvern Theatre say they are looking for enthusiastic, committed, and talented young people, aged 9-21, to take part in this all-singing, all-dancing, musical extravaganza.

Auditions will be open to anyone aged 9-21 and technical opportunities available for ages 16-26. They will be held on Sunday 23 April at the Wyvern Theatre.

Those interested in the Summer Youth Project but too old to participate can also join in as a chaperone. The SYP team say they are always looking for licensed chaperones, or those with a DBS certificate that would like to become a chaperone, to help with the Summer Youth Project.

With a large cast and a wide variety of roles, we can’t wait to welcome back some familiar faces as well as discovering some brand-new performers too.

Those interested in taking part or becoming a chaperone can visit: https://swindontheatres.co.uk/Online/swindonyouthproject

The project dates themselves will run from Sunday 6 - Saturday 19 August. Successful participants must be available for all these dates. 

The performance dates for the show will be Thursday 17, Friday 18 and Saturday 19 August. 

Tickets will be on sale for these shows and will be available to book online at swindontheatres.co.uk or via the theatre's central ticket line on 0343 310 0040.
