Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Musicals Young Company are on hiatus. We hope to get the Company up and running again as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Our new Musicals Young Company launched in Autumn 2019 for local musical theatre talent aged 16 – 24.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, the Company were in rehearsals for Flower Cutters, a brand new musical in collaboration with Perfect Pitch which was due to be performed in the Patrick Studio in 2020.
Founded in 2006 by Olivier-nominated producers Andy and Wendy Barnes, Perfect Pitch is a not-for-profit theatre company dedicated to the creation, development and promotion of new British musicals.
Robyn and Allie first met back in 2013 at East 15 Acting School. In late 2015 they founded their company ‘Fat Rascal Theatre’ which has since grown to be one of the leading creators of new musical theatre in the UK. Robyn is a writer, performer and director whilst Allie is a performer, choreographer and director. They have a unique brand of ensemble driven staging and together have created and toured 7 brand new musicals in the last 3 years. They are passionate about creating musical theatre which is bold, brave and relevant whilst creating exciting parts for women. They are thrilled to be working with the Birmingham Hippodrome after the success of their production “Unfortunate: The Untold story of Ursula the Sea Witch” which played the Patrick Studio last December.
