Aged between 16-21 and interested in taking part in RicNic Hampshire 2019? We think you should!
We're a small charity, but we're a unique one, because we give young people the means to really run the show - without paying a penny in participation fees. Put simply, we give our participants the funds to put on a full-scale musical, every summer, at a professional theatre (in Hampshire, the Theatre Royal).
To take part in a RicNic project, you don't need to be a terrific tap dancer, a world-class singer or even a musical enthusiast: RicNic is about mucking in, teamwork, and having fun as much as anything else, and there are a variety of roles on offer - from marketing and publicity to costume design and even business development. So, whether your strengths lie onstage, behind the curtain or in the pit, make sure you check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for regular updates - or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org - and find out how you can get involved!
We look forward to hearing from you!
