WOAPA student's return to London stage for new 'Legend Trippers' musical.

Congratulations to WOAPA student, Edd Conroy who is set to perform in London this summer with the prestigious National Youth Music Theatre in a newly-commissioned musical: Legend Trippers written by 'Noisemaker'; the award-winning musical writing partnership of Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie

The production will be directed by Kate Golledge. Musical direction is by Chris Poon and choreography by Darragh O'Leary.

Edd will be creating the role of 'Heath' for the world premiere of this new musical production.

We understand the standard of auditionees was particularly high this year and gaining a place within the NYMT 2019 company represents a truly remarkable achievement - well done Edd! 

About Legend Trippers

The writing team have been describing the show as a cross between the Famous Five, Stranger Things and Scooby Doo!

LEGEND TRIPPERS is an action-packed new musical for young people using joyous, energetic storytelling and song to examine the legends we’re passing on today, and how we might go about questioning them.

The show will be premiered at The Other Palace in London as part of NYMT's 2019 Season and will feature a cast of 28 exceptional young people from across the UK.
