Miller Performing Arts – Gen Last – Auditions for Youth Performers

It’s the year 2055. On a bleak and desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland, a group of young people with extraordinary psychic powers are drawn together from different corners of the globe. They are the enigmatic Crystal Children. 

Navigating the world alone, they confront the consequences of our failure to heed the warnings of climate change, hopeful that they can rebuild civilisation from the ashes.

This November, HKYAF’s new flagship production Gen Last takes to the stage at The Box, Freespace. Written and directed by Lindsey McAlister, the original musical tells a story of empowerment and optimism. Knowing that the fate of the planet rests in their hands, the young protagonists arm themselves with a shared determination to coexist harmoniously with nature.

We are now seeking singers, dancers and actors aged 7 to 25 who are keen to be part of our exciting new production. Experience preferred, enthusiasm a must!
