West End Training At Young Michael Jackson School for Marcellus
We are so proud of our student, Marcellus, who recently aced his audition in front of a top West End children’s casting director and is now through to Young Michael Jackson (YMJ) School this summer.
This training is in preparation for the opportunity to play the role of young Michael in the West End show – Thriller Live!
Marcellus will be very busy this summer learning drama, dance and singing twice a week at an intensive training course. He will be working with the production’s London Creative Team, including the West End Musical Director and one of the choreographers from the show.
Marcellus said, “I am really looking forward to this and I am so excited about going to London every week, meeting the other children at YMJ School and working with dancers and singers from the show – this will be my best summer ever!”
Marcellus has been a student at Spotlights for 6 years and started his training with us when he was just 5 in our Little Stars class. Marcellus has previously been in another professional production of Peter Pan at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre but if he gets through YMJ School this will be his West End debut.
Whatever happens this is a fantastic opportunity for intensive training with a cast of West End professionals. We can’t wait to see Marcellus moonwalk!
We hope he has a brilliant time and if he makes it through to the role of Michael we’re booking front row seats!
If your child would like the opportunity to audition for professional roles in theatre, TV and film the first step is to get in touch with us to try one of our performing arts classes. We offer all new students a free trial.
After becoming a member of Spotlights all current students then have the chance to try out for our Agency. We represent young people age 4-18 who have demonstrated a flair in drama, dance and singing. We provide training in audition technique and give parents support through the casting process. If you think your child may be the next big thing we would love to hear from you.
