Holiday Workshops

Put On A Play In A Week

Every holiday, we run Put on a Play in a Week workshops. Join the Creation team for a week where we get to grips with the text and rehearse, whilst playing a lot of games, then on Friday, we invite friends and family to come and see the final show. The show will usually take place at 3pm on the Friday, this will be confirmed during the week.

Workshops are £170 a week – we do offer sibling discounts of 10% and Friends discount of 20%.

Summer Holidays 2017

Our summer workshops are selling quickly! We’re running six weeks of workshops for kids aged 6 to 19 this summer, turning classic stories into plays

Our different age groups


Our 6-8 groups focus on understanding elements of storytelling and simple stagecraft, with an emphasis on working as part of an ensemble and a basic understanding of theatrical terms (such as standing in neutral, stage whisper, etc).

The 9-12 courses focus on building up stagecraft and performance skills. We focus on combining original text with contemporary language, as well as looking at character and motivation in more depth. The groups have more creative ownership of the piece, contributing to direction and staging.

Why we’re the best

  • We limit our workshops to 16 places, ensuring that your child gets a chance to shine and get to know everyone else in the group.
  • It’s rude not to share, so we do our best to make sure everyone has a moment in the spotlight, with role sharing.
  • All our workshop leaders are actors and theatre professionals, so they really know their stuff.
  • Our workshops run from 10am – 4.30pm, with flexible drop-off and pick-up from 9am – 5pm, so working parents don’t have to rush to pick up at the end of a busy day.
  • We make learning about classic stories fun, with drama games and theatre!

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what some parents said about our workshops:

  • “Encourages independent creativity and takes the mystique out of Shakespeare”
  • “A great introduction to Shakespeare! My son left each day with a buzzing imagination”
  • “Fun, creative, and a great show at the end which is rewarding for parents as well as kids!”
