West End stars show support for Musical Theatre Appreciation Society competition

The Musical Theatre Appreciation Society (MTAS), the UK’s largest musical theatre fan base, is reviving their exciting online competitions in 2019 with #MTACOMP19 – Welcome To Your
New Obsession.

The intense 10 week competition challenges competitors to produce singing videos in response
to themes given by the most celebrated West End performers. Past competitions have had
challenges from stars of Hamilton, Aladdin, Dreamgirls and Kinky Boots. This year’s prizes include £100 in theatre tokens, personalised stagey merchandise, free auditions to selected drama schools and more!

West End stars like the hugely influential Carrie Hope Fletcher have been tweeting their support of the competition with Carrie saying “I have no doubt I’ll be working with a few of them in years to come!”

MTAS Managing Director, Willy Mukendi said “Thank you for taking the time to comment on a few auditions on the MTAS page. Our members will remember that for the rest of their lives.”

Auditions run from the 1st-10th January. To audition, simply upload yourself singing your
favourite show tune to the Musical Theatre Appreciation Society facebook page using the
hashtag #MTACOMP19. The 10 videos with most like and heart reactions will move on to
become the competitors in this 10 week nail-biting musical extravaganza.

Previous winner, Olivia Lawrence says “People I had never met before were telling me they
had voted for me. The competition was bigger than I thought it would be. It was such an
amazing experience. God I wish I could do it all again”
