We are offering an exciting, inclusive and intensive performance-based course with a filmed production to finish. You will spend a wonderful week working with a group of like-minded young actors and our team of fantastic professional directors. Groups are split by age and each group will work with their director to create a scripted production to be filmed for family to watch from home at the end of the week. During the course you will have the chance to meet new people, take on challenging direction, gain experience and learn new skills. No experience or audition required. Choose from the below titles and make sure you let us know if you would like to be grouped with friends or siblings!
