In August 2020, RicNic Burton on Trent will stage its first musical theatre production at The Brewhouse Arts Theatre & Cafe in Burton on Trent. We are currently looking for 16-21 year olds in Staffordshire to get involved in this exciting new production. If you love musical theatre and would like to spend a free summer, working with other musicals fans to stage your own show - we would love to hear from you.
We will be recruiting a Producer, Director, Musical Director, Technicians, Designers, Marketing Managers, Cast, Band and Crew for this production. From choosing which show you work on through to closing night - every decision on the production will be completely down to you.
What makes RicNic so special?
At RicNic, you really do run the show. Everything is done by 16 to 21 year olds, which is really challenging but hugely rewarding - and important in a society where young people often don't get the respect and praise they deserve.
It's not just an opportunity for actors. Of course, our shows do need the most talented young actors, but we also need musicians, technicians, set designers, people who can sew or draw or build or design marketing, and people who can make the books balance. So whatever your 'thing' is, there's room for you in RicNic.
It doesn't cost you anything. Most summer theatre projects charge fees - sometimes massive ones - but we think that can put people off getting involved. We want the most talented and passionate people, regardless of how much cash they've got, so we don't expect you to have any. (Well, you have to buy your own lunch.)
Autonomy is fun. Being in control of a theatre and a show with dozens of other people your age is pretty much the best fun you can have. Everyone who does RicNic says that.
