Gala Theatre are delighted to be running a brand new summer school.
Young people aged 8-15 years are invited to come and take over our theatre.
We need you to select the text, come up with the ideas, develop the characters, put the show together and then perform it for an audience. Of course, you will have some help from our team of professional drama teachers, directors and technicians.
These sessions will be fast paced, fun and focus on building social and acting skills.
No previous experience is required, just enthusiasm, excitement and an entrepreneurial spirit.
To book a place contact the box office.
