Starmaker Boot camp is back for another stimulating season to invigorate your musical senses!
Enfiniti Productions, the team that brought you Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical (PGLM) and P. Ramlee The Musical, is organizing the musical theatre workshop again from 15th to 30th November 2008.
Leading the “Boot camp” is none other than West End star Stephen Rahman-Hughes, who plays the lead role of Hang Tuah in Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical.
Assisting Stephen is Matt Cross who has worked closely with Stephen in the West End. Stephen and Matt have a combined professional experience of over 30 years in the entertainment industry, both working extensively in film, television, West End theatre (where both have starred in leading roles) and the music industry. Both also have extensive dance backgrounds.
The "Boot camp" will be a two-week, intensive performing arts workshop. Over the two-week course, the focus will be on improving the skills within the three disciplines of acting, singing and dance.
The course will be looking at the technical aspect of each discipline. During the two weeks, the students will be encouraged to work towards a deeper, more truthful connection in each performance whether it be through song, acting or dance.
“We will be teaching the do's and don'ts of the industry, passing on our knowledge and working with each individual to build confidence,” says Stephen
Enfiniti will be sending several individuals who recently auditioned for Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical Season 3 to attend the “Boot camp” to prepare them for the ‘real thing’ as part of the ensemble in PGLM 3.
The boot camp will also be relevant for professional singers, actors or dancers who are looking for the next curve in their careers. “It’s such a competitive world out there and only those who keep up with change and continue to improve themselves will stand the test of time.
Besides, you haven’t come full circle as a performer if you haven’t done musical theatre!” says Tiara Jacquelina, Managing Director of Enfiniti, Executive Producer and lead actress of PGLM.
Tiara adds, “As for aspiring talent, this workshop will give you a very good idea of what to expect during rehearsals, and how to equip and 'position' yourself for a career in musical theatre.” Tiara will also be sharing her experiences and knowledge of the industry with the boot campers.
The program for the boot camp will be customized by Stephen and will not only incorporate relevant elements in West End theatre but also local theatre with emphasis on Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical, taking examples of scenes, songs and dance choreography from the musical.
Participants who did not audition for PGLM may even be considered for a part in the ensemble, depending on their performance during the Boot camp.
Overall, these two weeks aim to give each student a specific and detailed experience and to give them tools to carry into their careers as performers whilst having lots of fun.
