We are offering an exciting, inclusive and intensive performance-based course. 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 watched by family 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. Please find below a list of the exciting titles we are offering this summer!
No experience or audition required. If you would like your child to be placed in the same/different group as a friend or sibling, please put this in the "Any Other Info" section of the application form.
Please note this course is Monday to Saturday. Performances take place on Saturdays at 11.30am, 3.30pm or 7:30pm depending on your group. We will contact you with your group and performance times one week before the start of your course.
