YT93 Moving Forward, remote Easter Course and more……

Hi all,

Well what an interesting few months ahead! It will come as no great shock that YT93 and LAMDA will not be on this Saturday. Don’t panic! Marc and I will be available for you via whatever means possible, carrier pigeon, Face Time, Whats App, Tik Tok (however that works). I’m just getting my head around online safeguarding etc.

2020 YT is coming to get you!

We cannot wait to get started this term at YT with soooo much to look forward to this year already. But first a quick look back……….

LAMDA EXAM SUCCESS 100% Merits and Distinctions.

Marc, Chrissie and the LAMDA team saw 15 DISTINCTIONS and 12 MERITS with the highest score being two students with 87 marks! Absolutely AMAZING.  Our Musical Theatre Grade 6 Mamma Mia scored 82 and were awarded a DISTINCTION. Totally well deserved. The next Spring exams will be at the beginning of May. We will be entering a musical theatre piece from our Summer Show The Addams Family in November. (more…)

Latest YT93 News!


We have been approached by Goudhurst Fete June to perform JUNE 8th at 14.00hrs and 15.00hrs.  Please note there will not be a YT running on this day. All students to attend. PLEASE LET CHRISTINA KNOW ASAP if your child is unable to support this. We plan meeting at 13.00 hrs by the Bouncy Castle.

22nd June Visiting guest confirmed

Workshop date confirmed! Join us for a Mamma Mia Workshop with the incredibly busy Blaise Colangelo who (currently in Annie at the theatre) played Lisa on the Mamma Mia International Tour plus Lisa and 1st Cover Sophie on the UK Tour! It will be amazing to get some west end audition tips and stories as well as tackle routines and numbers form the show. Blaise will also be running YT students through Annie on a different date too! Everyone encouraged to wear blue and White for photographs or anything that inspires you! Get out those dungarees!!!

Mamma Mia Summer’s Here Again!

We are REALLY excited about the new Summer Term. There is lots going on from Sissinghurst School Fair 11th May, LAMDA exams May 13th and Mamma Mia Workshop Aug 19 – 23rd. Click here to book online.

Easter was busy too! We have some great pictures from a couple of parents but would love any more if parents managed to take any. Our Adult choir that joined us sounded AMAZING so much so we are going to offer places on our Mamma Mia week. Again we will run through numbers on the last day of term and invite anyone interested to join us then and for our final presentation on Friday August 23rd.

We continue to work at forming our fourties harmony singers (with a 21st Century twist to the numbers). Ideally we would love to get our group/s ready for 10/11th August for the Combined Ops Military and Air Show.

See You All Tomorrow!

YT93 set to SPRING into Action!

Students have a busy few months ahead!

Search for the new 1940’s sweethearts

Marc and Chrissie are excited to be training the next harmony singers at YT93. Historically the academy has helped to prepare and train students in close harmony singing resulting in live performances at local military and RAF events including the Leeds castle Classical Concert. We will be taking the students through their paces over the next few months with a view to choosing 3-4 students as our next 1940’s sweethearts. (more…)
