This summer, as part of our 60th anniversary, we are hosting a concert to celebrate the brilliant achievements of Chichester Festival Youth Theatre (CFYT) and Alumni, directed by Dale Rooks and Hannah Hogg.
Join us in the Festival Theatre on Sunday 31 July for a celebratory showcase of singing, dancing and performance, interspersed with some conversations and short interviews with CFYT members past and present.
We’re delighted to announce that the line-up will feature performances from former CFYT members: Lucy Anderson, Joe Butcher, Katy Ellis, Anna Foye, Nick Howard-Brown, Polly Maltby, Felix Mosse, Alice O’Hanlon, Megan O’Hanlon, Sam O’Hanlon and Sephora Parish, alongside current members from the CFYT Choir, CFYT Youth Dance Troupe and CFYT Friday group.
We’ll also be hearing from alumni members including Olivier Award winners Fred Davis and Romina Hytten, and previous John Hyland Award winners, catching up with their stories since leaving the Youth Theatre. And as a bonus, CFT’s Artistic Director and Olivier Award winner Daniel Evans will give a very special performance with CFYT.
Musical numbers from West End favourites Les Misérables, Oliver! and The Wizard of Oz will feature alongside some CFYT favourites from the spectacular Christmas productions, with musical direction from Colin Billing. The concert will be hosted by our Young Trustees Gi Liley and Holly Mirams.
All proceeds of the event will go towards Chichester Festival Youth Theatre.
Please join us for this wonderful celebration of Chichester's amazing Youth Theatre!
