Welcome to Bullfrog Productions
Our two Youth Group run on a Saturday afternoon in East Grinstead and on a Sunday morning in Brasted, near Sevenoaks. The company provides musical theatre opportunities for its Youth Group throughout the year. The students rehearse weekly to produce at least two major musicals each year plus the option of summer workshops. Past productions include, Les Miserables, HONK Jr, West Side Story, Oklahoma, Peter Pan, Annie, Rent, Beauty & The Beast, Footloose, Fame and We Will Rock You and many more….
This year we have seen two very diverse shows in “Annie” and a new musical “Once Upon A Time” written by our Musical Director Adam Hoskins. The emphasis for this creative young group is “performance” and therefore its weekly rehearsals always culminate in a classic musical theatre show. The Youth Group aims to provide to opportunities for all ages (from 5 to 25 years) the productions are often tailored to suit all different age groups, . The three disciplines of dance, drama and singing, necessary for a successful production, are not taught by class, but by the experience of working alongside talented, creative teachers and producing a final quality show. Many of our students go on to vocational colleges and subsequently into the profession. We hope our company will provide a platform from which they can launch their professional careers and many are already performing on the West End Stage!
The adult professional company was responsible for the production of “Honk” starring Cheryl Baker, our patron, who actively appears in and supports Bullfrog alongside a host of other professional Actors. Other shows that have involved our professionals include “Seussical” once again using the talents of Cheryl, “Beauty & The Beast”, “Aristocats” and “Jungle Book”, supported by many of our young stars who were also given the opportunity to tour these shows to theatres in the South East. The company has two main aims – one to provide musical theatre opportunities for its Youth Group and two to produce professional shows which utilise the talents of its creative team of experienced Actors, Directors, Choreographers, and Musical Directors. Past productions include, Les Miserables, HONK Jr, West Side Story, Oklahoma, Peter Pan, Annie, Rent, Beauty & The Beast, Footloose, Fame and We Will Rock You and many more…. Bullfrog also offers vocational classes on Saturday mornings in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Hip Hop and Private Singing for those students that wish to develop and improve individual skills. These classes start at the tender age of 3!
