A Teenage Opera, the magical mystery of musical theatre, will transport you back to 1967’s Summer of Love, prepare to be dazzled. Youth Music Theatre UK presents the world première production of A Teenage Opera. Featuring original classic hits from Wirtz and West including the iconic song Grocer Jack, alongside a brand new story and additional lyrics by Pete Gallagher (Jesus Christ Superstar, Buddy). This epic, musical spectacular is packed with catchy melodies and directed by one of the West End’s foremost leading ladies, Julie Atherton (Avenue Q, Mama Mia).

As costume supervisor I took measurements, organised costume hires, pulled together costumes for over 30 young performers and assisted with quick changes throughout the performances.
As assistant designer I assisted with designing prop graphics and set painting during the get in.
