This summer talented Year 12 actor Jamil Abassi will be performing in the Liverpool Empire Youth Theatre’s production of the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical ‘In The Heights!’
Having auditioned four times, against tough competition, to gain this very prestigious role, Jamil is thrilled to have secured the lead and is incredibly excited for the curtain to rises on Friday 24th August. Productions delivered by the Liverpool Empire Youth Theatre are of an extremely high standard, with the cast working with a professional team for 11 months.
Prior to taking to the Liverpool Empire Stage Jamil will spend a week at the world renowned Arts Educational School in London, as he prepares for a series of forthcoming auditions for stage schools and Universities. This is an exceptionally competitive process, with thousands applying for only a handful of places. In order to stand out he needs to be able to dance, sing and act – the “triple threat”.
In addition to this Jamil will embark on one of his most challenging roles in musical theatre to date, when he will play “Judas” in the Epstein theatre’s production of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s classic Jesus Christ Superstar, this autumn.
We are delighted to announce that Jamil will make his directorial debut next year, having be chosen to direct the 2019 Blue Coat School Show. Jamil is really looking forward to this new role and the challenges ahead!
