Top 5 Musicals For Teenagers To Be In with Flynn Crewes

Top 5 Musicals For Teenagers To Be In with Flynn Crewes

18 episodes into this podcast! Fantastic Fantastix is well and truly a teenager – so I thought it was about time to talk about Teenage musicals.

My guest today is a very talented local performer, 15-year-old Flynn Crewes. Currently assistant directing and playing the role of Scar in The Lion King Jr at The Regals Musical Society, we took time away from rehearsals to discuss the top 5 musicals for teenagers to be in. We spoke about balancing his onstage passions with all the other aspects of being a teenage school student, I find out who is Fantastic Fantastix biggest fan, Flynn gives advice to any teenagers looking to get into musical theatre and I ask him the Fantastix Fast Five. So, before my 18th episode starts ignoring me, thinks that it knows everything and sleeps in until noon – let’s talk to Flynn Crewes about the Top 5 Musicals for Teenagers to be in.
