Music & Drama Education Expo social media giveaway competition has opened!


Entry for the giveaway competition is now open with the winner being in with a chance to win a license and ShowKit for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical JR., kindly donated by Music Theatre International.

Music & Drama Education Expo are excited to announce this competition for social media followers on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Entrants will be in with a chance of winning a Matilda the Musical JR. Broadway license and ShowKit for their school! This wonderful prize has been very graciously donated by Music Theatre International (MTI).

Music & Drama Education Expo are delighted to be partnering with MTI for the social media competition, to give teachers the chance to bring this renowned production to their school, and to help get pupils excited about music and drama education.

 “We are thrilled to be able to support the Music & Drama Education Expo by offering a free licence and ShowKit for our hottest new show, Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical JR.” said Ryan Macaulay, MTI Europe’s Director of Operations, Education and Development. “Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin’s award-winning musical adaptation makes for the perfect school musical; it’s universal appeal will delight teachers, pupils and audiences alike.”

“The Expo is always a real highlight in the MTI calendar – it’s a joy to meet and interact with teachers who are going above and beyond to mount productions of musical theatre in their schools. At a time when funding for the arts is being cut, it is important that we recognise the excellent work teachers in the performing arts are doing up and down the country. We are looking forward to the Expo in September with optimism and excitement and look forward to seeing you there!”.
