It's that time of year, when performing arts courses come to an end and the students reveal the fruits of their labours in summer productions.
To make sure you don't miss out on any student Sondheim, here's a list, via our friends at MTI Europe, of some upcoming performances by the country's various drama schools and courses. Do give your support to these up-and-coming young performers – it's your chance to say, "I saw them first!"

The Stephen Sondheim Society is also proud to be supporting this summer's show by South London Youth Theatre (SLYT), who will be tackling West Side Story. This talented group did a wonderful job – in just 10 working days! – with Sweeney Todd last year, so we're expecting another special performance from them. Check out our video of their Sweeney Todd:
