For ideas to take to your own intermediate acting classes in London, there's really nothing better than a trip to the theatre. And if musical theatre is a particular interest of yours, then you really do need to make time to see The Buskers Opera later on this year.
By Dougal Irvine and inspired by The Beggar's Opera by John Gay, the musical tells the tale of a group of street performers known as the 99percenters who have come together to protest against overpriced corporate games. Apparently, viewers should expect "a reckless abandon of political correctness and some top class tunes to redefine a golden age".
Previews for the show are on April 28th, with press night on May 5th. It'll be running until June 4th at the Park Theatre in London, so you'll have plenty of time to go and see it if your curiosity has been piqued.
According to Official London Theatre, the designer was recruited through a competition with the University of the Arts, which is certainly one way to hire theatre workers! And homeless theatre company Cardboard Citizens was also involved to help with the production of the show. We're certainly looking forward to seeing it here at City Acting!
