The Brunton's Move It Flashmob!

Date: 1st Aug 2014

Location: The Brunton

Time: 13:45 - 14:00

Cost: Free

At 1.45 pm Friday 1 August young participants of East Lothian Youth Musical Theatre, Theatre Company and Dance Company will ‘flash-mob’ at the front of The Brunton

The Brunton is putting Youth Theatre, Music and Dance in the spotlight by delivering Move It Flashmob!

On 1 August 1.45pm at The Brunton, Musselburgh

At 1.45 pm (Friday 1 August) young participants of East Lothian Youth Musical Theatre, Youth Theatre Company and Youth Dance Company will ‘flash-mob’ at the front of The Brunton to showcase East Lothian Council’s Summer Arts Programme and to help announce the launch of The Brunton’s Fringe programme. We are looking for volunteers to help us capture the vibrancy of the moment, particularly filming the flashmob performance and taking photographs. Please contact us if you would like to be invovled.

Around 20 young people will surprise members of the public with their acting, singing and dancing; an experience that we trust will linger in their memories for a long time to come. Our hope is that the flash mob video and campaign call will become something that makes ripples throughout East Lothian and across the world; inspiring more young people to take part in arts activities as a fun way to develop their creative and lifelong learning skills.

East Lothian Youth Musical Theatre, Drama and Dance Summer Arts Intensives for young people aged 12-18, offer young people a fun filled week of engaging drama and dance workshops designed to create a mini dance or theatre company. Young people develop drama skills and techniques by creating a play in a week, or experience a variety of dance styles and work with choreographers to create two contrasting pieces. The week culminates in the groups coming together to perform an outdoor Move It Flashmob! and a showcase double bill on the theatre stage at The Brunton for family. These workshops are a great chance to experience the professional side of theatre, music and dance!

The Drama and Theatre intensive courses run from Monday 28 July to Friday 1 August from 10am until 4pm (7.30pm on Friday), take place at The Brunton in Musselburgh and cost £75, or £60 for Leisure Pass Plus holders. Spaces can be booked by calling The Brunton on 0131 665 2240.

The Brunton has programmed a buzzing mix of music for this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, for a bucketful of entertainment! Appearing at The Brunton this August are Mac Floyd, Alex Hodgson, Keep Smiling Through, We3Tenors, Niki King Quintet, Them Beatles, Scottish Swing Orchestra, The Dolly Parton Story, Blazin’ Fiddles, The Singing Kettle and a showcase of the Royal Conservatoire’s finest piano students in Pianos @One. There will also be outdoor drama performances for all the family with Alice Through The Looking Glass and The Tempest by Quantum Theatre. Both outdoor dramas take place on Sunday 18 August and advance booking is advised.
