A ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity for local young people to become a part of an historic moment in Aberdeen’s cultural history has been unveiled.
With Aberdeen’s newly transformed Music Hall preparing to re-open its’ doors at the end of this year, Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA), the charity behind the project, are on the lookout for an ambitious group of 13-18 year olds from across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to take on the privileged position of acting as Young Ambassadors for them as they introduce their Stepping In programme.
The programme will include a series of insight workshops led by the team at APA, exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ events, invitations to shows and the chance to share thoughts and views across a variety of mediums - whether that be via social media, blog posts or video diaries. It’s sure to be an incredible opportunity!
With so many exciting and innovative projects in the pipeline, young people are encouraged to sign up now to avoid disappointment.
If you’re interested in finding out more, come along to His Majesty’s Theatre this Thursday, April 5. The team from APA will be there between 10am and 1pm and will be able to give you more information about the programme and answer any questions you might have about what’s in it for you!
