Collabro are an English musical theatre boy band who took the Britain's Got Talent judges' and viewers' breath away with their renditions of classic tracks. Michael Auger, Richard Hadfield, Jamie Lambert, Thomas Leak and Matthew Pagan only formed a month prior to their audition for Britain's Got Talent and came together over their shared love of musical theatre.
In February, their lives changed forever when they performed ?Stars' from Les Mis?rables and received a unanimous standing ovation from the judges and audience at their first audition in London. Collabro progressed to the final of Britain's Got Talent and were cast the winners in front of 11 million viewers.

World Premiere (White Bear). Running time: 1hr. 15mins
A pioneering artist whose work spans theatre, cabaret and mime, Dickie Beau elevates the drag tradition of lip-synching through a performance style known as ?playback'. Using salvaged audio recordings which he edits into digital scripts, he channels extraordinary voices onstage, creating an eerie archive of those who might be lost, or are no longer living. Winner of this year's Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, Beau makes his directorial debut with a haunting ensemble piece, inspired in part by the history of image-making and funerary rituals. Uncanny sound and physical performance animate psychedelic scenes that play on ideas of presence and absence. Running time: 1hr 15mins/no interval. Age guidance: 16+ (contains adult content)
