WEEK 1 - Monday 22nd to Friday 26th July 2024


This fun-filled week will focus on musical theatre, drama, comedy, dance, and gothic horror. 


Throughout the week we work intensively towards a performance of a much-loved comedy musical, written by a local writer, whilst we introduce the participants to a range of stage skills.


WEEK 2 - Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August 2024

Throughout the week we will enter the magical world of the musicals, working on group numbers and solos from a selection of West End and Broadway Musicals; looking at how stories are transformed through music. The students will get the chance to enhance their solo and group performance skills during this feel good week of Musical Theatre.
