Our all-new Summer Theatre Courses for 2019 are a fun summer activity for children and young people.
The school term is nearly over, the summer school holidays are just round the corner. If you are looking for a fun activity for the kids then register them for our summer theatre classes!
This year, each course will share the common theme of identity and self-expression.
Throughout the course each group will work with highly experienced Theatre Artists to explore a variety of performance and theatre techniques. As their time progresses, they will devise a new piece of theatre which will be performed at the end of the course.
No experience is necessary, there are no auditions and all are welcome on a first come first served basis. If cost is a barrier to attendance, then please note we offer bursaries . If participants require additional support, then please get in touch as this is something we can assist with.
