Youth Music Theatre UK success

20 March 2013

Congratulations to Patrick Cole, one of Abingdon's third year drama scholars, who has successfully auditioned for Youth Music Theatre UK's summer production of Vanishing Point. YMT attracts some of the finest young actors from across the country, so Patrick's success represents a significant achievement. It is the company's first attempt at creating a musical film. Actors will be working in Plymouth with the BAFTA award-winning production company Gamelab to create a film that takes as its starting point the troubling phenomenon of young people going missing. The performers will shape the content and style of the film, and in the process learn the inner-workings of the film industry. The film will be released later in the year, with a London premiere (including red carpet!) thrown in for good measure.
