"Mamma Mia!"masterclasses announced

Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer and Simon Warwick for The Creative Masterclasses Company have joined forces to introduce the official Performance Masterclasses of Mamma Mia! .

There will be three of these unique courses during 2005. Held at a central London rehearsal space and the Prince of Wales Theatre, the non-residential courses, which focus on the true spirit of Mamma Mia!, culminate in the participants' very own performance on the set of the production. The performance will include full lighting, sound and Masterclass Band.

Over 3 and half days the participants will learn and perfect original Mamma Mia! material, taught by highly respected members of the West End creative team.

Because of the nature of the musical itself, the Masterclasses will prominantly appeal to both male and female performers aged between 16-50 who dance or move well.

The Masterclass fee (£275) includes a top price ticket to see the London production, plus two tickets to the Saturday morning closed performance by members of the Masterclass, on stage at the Prince of Wales Theatre.

Each Masterclass course is limited to 60 places and the courses will be 30 Mar to 2 April 2005; 1-4 June 2005; and 10-13 Aug 2005. (applications are dealt with on a first come first served basis, with full payment at the time of application.)
