The company, which is staging The Producers at the Church Hill Theatre in March, traditionally stages two concert productions at the fringe – in 2015 it was Fringe Fantasmic and Anthems – Broadway Showstoppers which both received four star reviews in Æ.

The working titles for this year’s shows are Fringe Fantasia and Anthems. The two 50 minute concerts comprise themed song and dance routines including solo and large company numbers

EMT is looking to appoint a Director, Musical Director and Choreographer to “bring the concerts to life”.
