Coming up


Tue 30 Jul - Sat 03 Aug

Are you ready for the challenge? Probably the most exciting thing 7-16 year olds can do during the summer holidays this year. In the course of just one week we will create a new play. Everything from devising, rehearsing and performing the final show will be done in just five days.

What’s the play? We don’t know yet – you’ll find out on Tuesday 30 July – when the clock starts ticking.
Dates: Tuesday 30th July to Saturday 3rd August 2013 (5 days)
Times: 10am to 4pm each day
Performance: Saturday 3rd August 2013
Where? Lakeside Theatre, Colchester
Who’s it for? Anyone aged 7 to 16 years old (Update 24/6 – we plan to have age specific groups for younger and older children so the course is fun and relevant to everyone)

Price: £60.00

PLEASE NOTE: Once a place has been booked on this course you will receive a telephone call or email from a member of the community & education team within 5 working days to gather more information about your child.

This course is in partnership with Mercury Theatre Colchester – if we’ve sold out of spaces, try booking on their website here
