A Musical – In a Week!

Take a group of excited and passionate kids, and stir in some singing, dancing, acting, character development, and performance - and you have ‘A Musical - In a Week!’.

Spend your days in a creative space, working to a script and vocal score under the guidance of an enthusiastic, caring and well-trained production team.

It’s five days of pure fun, whilst learning a range of performance skills. With team-building activities and group work, you’ll be part of an ensemble, making friendships as you go.
