Daily: 10.00am – 4.00pm
Friday: 1.00pm – 8.00pm

Calling all young performers and budding technicians! Are you interested in getting on stage and acting your socks off? Or would you prefer to work behind the scenes and learn about the technical side?
We’ve got an exciting week for you; all you need to do is come up with the ideas, develop the character, put the show together and then perform it for an excited audience. Of course, you will have some help with that from our team of professional drama teachers, directors and technicians. No previous experience is required, just enthusiasm, excitement and an entrepreneurial spirit!
Performance on Friday 9 August, 7pm.
Recommended age 7-15
