AS part of Guildford Fringe End of Summer Season, Broadway Takeover bursts into the Back Room of The Star Inn on Friday, September 22 to bring you the ultimate Musical Theatre extravaganza.

Take this opportunity to enjoy a night of Musical Theatre hits, brought to you by seven local Drama School students as they go into their final year of training.  Experience a wide range of numbers from some of the industry’s most celebrated composers such as Jason Robert Brown, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Schwartz.

Guildford School of Acting students Josh Zac Hawkins, Mary-Jean Caldwell, Shak Gabbidon-Williams, Grace Mouat, Luke Fraser Yates and Hollie Aires have got together to organise this special event themselves, accompanied by Michiel Janssens on piano.

Guildford Fringe Director Nick Wyschna says: “Anyone that knows me knows that Musical Theatre is my passion and once upon a time it was even my job!  I always love hearing the next generation of actors before they graduate so I am very excited about this cabaret. I really admire this group of students, as being able to make your own work is an absolute must these days in theatre.  When they approached me and said they would like to be involved I bit their hands off!”

Performer Josh Zac Hawkins explains: “We’re all going into our third and final year of training, so we thought putting on our very own Musical Theatre night was a great way to see where our skills are at.  All six of us have really unique voices that each stand out in their own right, yet blend together just as strongly.

“I think Musical Theatre has been getting increasingly popular recently, especially with all the film adaptations that have been released. Even if people aren’t directly involved in the industry, they can appreciate how it uses all three major disciplines of acting, singing and dance to convey a story, and take the audience on a journey at the same time.

“We’re all extremely excited to be a part of the Guildford Fringe End of Summer Season, and can’t wait to share all of our rehearsed material with an audience. We really hope people come down to watch our mixture of classic and modern American Musical Theatre hits!”

Enjoy an exceptional showcase of musical talent, with tunes from The Lion King, Wicked, Matilda, Grease, Rent, West Side Story and more!
