ARE YOU UP FOR A CHALLENGE?
Odyssey Youth was founded in 2010 and is an exciting musical theatre project in Banbury aimed at 12 - 18 year olds living in the Banbury area.
It gives all budding actors, singers and dancers the opportunity to work on a fully staged and costumed production.
The cast and crew have just over a week to create the production from scratch - rehearsing everyday, building and painting the scenery, sourcing the props and helping with costumes.
With over 14 years experience of producing musicals, the Odyssey team are renowned for putting on productions of exceptional quality and many of them have worked professionally in their particular area of expertise. As well as being part of Odyssey, they have also given their time to work with other local youth theatre groups and have taken youngsters to appear in London’s West End with performances taking place at Her Majesty’s Theatre and the O2. Over the years, many of Odyssey’s students have gone on to study at some of the top theatre schools in London and are now working professionally in the industry.
The Summer School consists of an intense rehearsal period for the students followed by the opportunity to showcase their efforts with three public performances at the end of the week. This gives them a taste of what it’s like to work in a professional manner.
Previous productions have included Footloose, Copacabana, CATS, Summer Holiday and Bring It On. Following the success of this year's fantastic production of Loserville, Odyssey are delighted to announce that next year's show will be the absolutely stunning, Tony Award winning, Pippin.
