Summer Schools 2018
Summer Schools 2019
Throughout the summer holidays we offer a choice of two FREE muscial theatre courses for performers aged 16-18 years. Depending on age and experience, students undertake a Level 2 or Level 3 qualification in Performing Arts.
This is a fully funded course (if you are 16-18) and enables the participants to perform in a juke-box musical theatre performance of Little Shop of Horrors extracts, along with other shows.
This is a very rewarding experience but does require commitment, energy and passion from any young people wanting to take part. There is a large amount of work involved to achieve these qualifications and required standards of performance in such a short space of time.
This year the courses run from Friday 2nd August 2019 - Friday 16th August 2019.
Students will study towards becoming Triple Threat performers: acting, singing, dancing and musical theatre and theatre craft, building towards a live performance for the public, as well as qualifications at Level 2 or 3 (age and experience will depend which).
They will build a foundation in all these areas and develop a practical and theoretical understanding, as well as developing their own skills and techniques. They will apply these skills to performances, focusing on the integration of all disciplines.
Friday 2nd August - 10am-6pm - Induction day, vocal and movement workshops, auditions and assessments for solos (you do not have to try for a solo - there is plenty of group and chorus work).
Monday 5th August - Friday 9th August - 10am-6pm daily - Intensive workshops in singing, dance and musicality. You will work with a Movement Director, Musical Director, Singing teacher and Show Director.
Monday 12th - Friday 16th Aug 10am-6pm Daily - Intense workshopping on Little Shop.
Wednesday 14th - West End Trip - Show tbc in June 2019
Friday 16th Aug - 10am-4pm - Tech, Dress, and exam performance. 5pm-6.00pm - Show case in the Studio Theatre at South Hill Park. Family and friends are welcome to purchase tickets from our box office from August 1st.
This is a fully funded (FREE) opportunity for capable and committed young people aged 16-18 years. We offer subsidised opportunities for students 19 years of age and above, or aged 14/15 and able to cope with the work level.
From 2nd August - 16th August, young people aged 16-18 years can undertake an RSL qualification in Performing Arts in eleven intensive days (full time).
