If you need a fun-filled week in a high energy, performance based environment, then we'd love for you to join us at the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse.

  • Workshops start each day at 10.00am and finish at 4.00pm.

  • Attendees are required to bring their own refreshments to see them through the day.

  • Attendees are also requested to wear clothes suitable for movement and appropriate footwear, which will enable them to engage in all of the daily activities.

  • Students will be required to read text unaided. 

  • £185 per week (sign up for one week or both. There will be a mini performance at the end of the week for family and friends to watch).


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.


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.
