Summer Schools – Costumes, Lights, Action!
Commonly known as the best week of the summer holidays, the students are instantly engaged with casting, rehearsing and finally performing the songs, dances and drama that they have learned throughout the week.
The students work hard each day, learning new skills, developing existing ones, whilst strengthening and creating friendships.
This year the Summer School production will be a compilation of shows like Les Miserables, Annie, Spamalot, Madagascar, The Addams Family and much more! It is packed with great songs and dances and some hilarious scenes. Rehearsals will start on the Monday morning and by Friday at 5pm we will have a brilliant show to present to the families and friends of the cast.
