Em by Benjamin Till
BA (Hons) Musical Theatre
BAFTA nominated musical theatre practitioner Benjamin Till, was impressed by Edge Hill students when they participated in an early read through of the script for his new musical Em. So impressed, that he returned to campus to invite the group to record one of Em’s most vibrant numbers The Pool, and assist in the creation of an accompanying music video.
The group received credit on the ofﬁcial cast album for Em for their vocal performances recorded in Edge Hill’s state of the art recording studios. This was the ﬁrst professional credit of this nature for most of the participating students, and the process gave them a chance to network and make contacts with industry professionals, who have offered mentoring and future guidance.
“It was a genuine pleasure to work with the Musical Theatre students at Edge Hill. I’ve totally fallen in love with them! I was bowled over by their commitment, enthusiasm and work ethic and I’m hugely excited about the film we made together.”
