Thank you for your interest in Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes Curtain Raiser.
Our Curtain Raiser Project will bring together 25 talented young people from the Southern Region to produce a short 5 minute performance.
The cast will be identified through a workshop audition process and work with Matthew Bourne's professional creative team to produce the performance over a 4 day period. All applicants must have previous dance experience.
Mayflower Engage is the community and education programme for Mayflower Theatre. We offer a wide range of opportunities for young people and the community to get involved and take part. Our Curtain Raiser Projects give young performers the opportunity to work alongside world renowned companies, creating short live performances that are performed for our main house audience as the “curtain raises”.
The project fee includes all workshops and the performance, a project T.shirt, and a ticket to see The Red Shoes on Friday 27th March.
We are delighted to continue building on our great partnership with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures through these projects.
