The Jack Petchey Theatre Challenge

Following the success of the Theatre Challenge, we were once again recruited by the Jack Petchey Foundation to create a project to engage an even greater number of participants. We devised and created the Jack Petchey Glee Club Challenge, which offers singing groups across London the chance to compete against one another for the opportunity to be crowned Glee Club Champions. The groups take part in boot camps where they have the chance to work with industry professionals, before a round of regional finals. The regional winners attend a final boot camp before the Grand Final takes place at a top London venue. Grand Finals have taken place at The Savoy Theatre, The Royal Festival Hall, and the IndigO2 at the O2. The annual event is still running today and so far, has engaged over 5000 participants.

“Opportunity was scarce when I was younger, and the Jack Petchey Theatre challenge offered a rare chance to perform with talented, likeminded people on a west end stage. The experience was undoubtedly life changing and helped seal the deal when making a decision to become an actor”
