Two months after receiving media training from the enigmatic Richard Lutz (former ITV Editor and Reporter), our team of media representatives were presented with their first opportunity to try out their newly learnt skills.

Midlands Today and Radio WM reporters arrived curious and eager to discover more about the project. Here’s what our young people had to say!

A big week at BB&Me headquarters! The young people have just completed the first week of rehearsal intensives that will determine the casting for the final production.

This week they had the opportunity to put some of their drama skills to use when they were asked to develop mime sequences using some of the characters. Strong performances were given and some funny moments were experienced as the group felt their way through the material and used their creative brains to develop their ideas.

Next week they will be joined by Birmingham Royal Ballet dancers who have been appointed as choreograpahers for the project and together they will trial and explore sections of the newly created ballet.

So what are the Artistic Director and Director of Choreography looking for in a perfect BB&Me participant?? Someone who:

Gives it a go

Listens

Works well with others

Gives ideas

 

Well done to all for a week of hard work and focus!
