Stage Acts Entertainment is teaming up with the International School of Monaco (ISM) to bring a piece of London’s West End to Monte Carlo.
Award-winning producers Paul Spicer and Matt Firth will create a weeklong course in musical theatre at ISM running from July 10 until July 14. The workshop features a specially selected team of practitioners from London’s theatreland, offering the students a chance to work on material from hit musicals – and with cast members from the actual shows – including Mamma Mia!, Footloose, Hairspray, School of Rock, Legally Blonde and Fame.
The course is open to students at ISM between the ages of 8 and 18 to allows them to work closely with performers, directors, choreographers and producers, inspiring each individual to become the best that they can be at this very specific style of performance, while also providing incomparable opportunities to strengthen confidence and improve on all manner of performance and communication skills.
Students will also work closely with Leanne Harwood, who has extensive experience in film, TV and musical theatre. Leanne trained at Guildford School of Acting and her credits include The Crown (Netflix) the West End revival of La Cage Aux Folles starring Graham Norton, UK tours of Grease & Footloose, the international tour of Mamma Mia! and, most recently, Theatre Royal Stratford East’s acclaimed production of Oh, What A Lovely War! starring Caroline Quentin.
Workshops include sessions in the three major disciplines of acting, singing and dancing. The sessions will be spent working in detail on material lifted directly from many smash-hit musicals.
Both Paul Spicer and Matt Firth began their careers appearing in West End musicals, Avenue Q, Mamma Mia!, The Witches of Eastwick, Sweeney Todd and The Last 5 Years to name but a few. Having spent 20 years based in London, their production company Stage Acts Entertainment relocated to the South of France.

The Commission, under the chairmanship of the Minister of State, is composed of 13 members. Created in February 2010 by the Prince's Government, it responds to the wish of HSH the Sovereign Prince to preserve in the Principality the intellectual wealth of its youth and also to facilitate the return of expatriate graduates to Monaco.
The executive unit's mission is to support young Monegasque and resident graduates by promoting the establishment of bridges, and by establishing privileged contacts with companies to facilitate their access to skilled jobs, particularly in the private sector.
Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Didier Gamerdinger reminded those present that the integration of young graduates is at the heart of the concerns of the Prince's Government.
Since the creation of the Commission, a total of more than one thousand young graduates have been interviewed in order to be able, at the end of their training, to benefit from support to find a first job, while 236 graduates, including 123 of Monegasque nationality, found a position in Monaco corresponding to their qualifications. Twenty-one expatriates have successfully benefited from this support.
These meetings have allowed for more than seven years of discussions which have helped to highlight some of the obstacles and have resulted in more personalised support, the increased awareness of business leaders and a better knowledge of the employment-generating sectors in the Principality.
