The original & still the best!
We offered our very first Theatre Week in Southwell, Nottinghamshire in August 1993 – the first week of its kind in the UK. Every summer since then, we have grown to become one of the biggest summer schools of this kind in the UK, and over the past 26 years we have given nearly 2,000 children the opportunity to take to the stage in spectacular specially written musicals produced in just 5 days. Many try to copy us, but Theatre Week is unique – the original and still the best!
A Fun-Packed Week!
Each action-packed day runs from 9.00am to 4.00pm & the children are kept constantly busy & active so there’s never a dull moment. The week is stuffed with performing fun, not to mention lots of fun team games, competitions and prizes. Working with experienced professionals, they’ll enjoy many exciting drama, dance & singing activities geared towards a sparkling final production on the last day! Children are provided with free drinks all day, & our Tuck Shop provides tasty treats for break times!
Each child is given their own Theatre Week Folder containing a full glossy script of their production & an entertaining Fun-Pack Activity Book full of games, quizzes & colourings all based around their show! And at the end of the week, prizes & certificates are awarded for competitions, team games & personal achievements! Our cool Theatre Week T-shirts are available to pre-order, which kids love wearing not just at Theatre Week but the whole year through! And don’t forget to buy the limited edition Show CD with all the songs so you can sing along at home or in the car!
Half way though all the fun & hard work of the week, the children can take a well-earned break and let their hair down at our fabulous Party Afternoon! The youngsters will enjoy extra games and activities, then dance their socks off at our spectacular party disco! Children adore this special part of Theatre Week – a really special afternoon which makes the whole week even more exciting!
Trust The Experts!
We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, so you can trust our experience and expertise! Our team of qualified and highly experienced staff are all fully DBS checked and include drama, dance and school teachers along with licensed chaperones and trained professionals from the performing arts. It is their experience, professional input and caring nature that makes Theatre Week an unforgettable fun-packed week for every child!
