Viva triumphs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
We have arrived home from a fantastic week away at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with two sell out shows and two 5 star reviews!
It has been a busy week for our cast and production members at the famous Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. We travelled with over 70 people from the cast, aged 15 and up, to the production team, volunteers, family, parents and friends for a week of musical fun with Half a Sixpence and Avenue Q. We returned to the venue Greenside where we first performed in 2005 with the show Fame.
It was a successful week and both casts were an absolute pleasure to have on board for the project. With some of our cast returning to the festival, after performing in past years, and the whole cast of Half a Sixpence being new to the scene they gave it everything they had and behaved like true professionals from beginning to the end. A big thank you to everyone who was involved in this huge production as without each and every one of you it could not have been a success.
We are always working hard to provide as many opportunities as possible to anyone who would like to be involved. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a chance to perform to a completely different audience as well as performing acapella on the Royal Mile and handing out leaflets to advertise your own shows. It is a great confidence booster and opportunity for the young people to get out and about and experience something new.
Check out some of our photos below taken by those who went on the trip! Are you interested in getting involved in Viva? Then come along to our open evening in September to hear all about what we have coming up next. More details here.
