Musical Theatre - Studio Company - Avenue Q

Musical Theatre - Studio Company - Avenue Q

ABOUT THE STUDIO COMPANY


The Studio Company, our exciting Musical Theatre performance group, returns in Winter 2021 with the hit Musical Comedy 'Avenue Q’, a hilarious Musical featuring puppets and human actors, where the inspiration for the show has been drawn from Sesame Street and The Muppets. The show has also deservedly won multiple Tony awards and has been performed all around the world.

Previous City Academy Studio Company productions include 'Chicago', 'In the Heights', 'Lend me a Tenor', 'Sweeney Todd', 'Urinetown', 'Into The Woods' and 'Company', all of which had sold-out houses and rave reviews. The group rehearses and performs musicals in unique and quirky Central London theatre spaces to a paying audience. With rehearsals on Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings over two months, The Studio Company has a record for producing excellent Musical Theatre shows for its growing and discerning audience. With a whole week’s run of performances at the amazing Bridewell Theatre, this process will be both intense and rewarding, whilst still allowing you your normal working life.

You will work with a Director, a Musical Director and a Choreographer, all with extensive experience of professional theatre, to produce a show you will be incredibly proud of.

OUR VISION FOR THE SHOW

We have extremely exciting plans for Avenue Q and will be tackling the show in a slightly unconventional way. Instead of each character being cast as the same role throughout the piece, we will be utilising the puppet roles and will be casting a company of ‘players' who will rotate puppets and will play multiple roles throughout. The only roles that will be played by the same actor throughout the show are 'Christmas Eve', ‘Brian' and 'Gary Coleman'.

We are so excited to be back at the wonderful Bridewell Theatre with its convenient central London location, and cant wait to make the magic happen both in the rehearsal room and on stage.

The Performance

The performance will take place at The Bridewell Theatre, one of London’s leading fringe theatre venues, and will feature a full cast of puppets and a set that will bring Avenue Q alive in front of your very eyes.

With hilarious songs such as 'Everyone's a Little Bit Racist', 'If You Were Gay', 'The Internet is for Porn' and 'It Sucks to be Me', the show is guaranteed to give the audience non-stop laughs.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
