Get involved in theatre’s Play In A Week project

Derby Theatre is to run a Summer School of theatre for 8–16 year olds, where they will produce a Play in a Week, from Monday, July 29-Friday, August 2.

During this project, young people will work in a real theatre setting, with professional theatre practitioners, to create a play in just one week.

For young people with an interest in theatre, this a great opportunity to: work with professional theatre practitioners, share ideas and put them into practice and performance; gain an insight into producing a show within a professional theatre environment; be involved in the production, and be a part of the decision-making relating to how the play develops.

The end product will be a performance, shown to family and friends, on the final day.

Caroline Barth, head of learning at Derby Theatre, said: “We are really excited about working with the talent and energy of young people of Derby and Derbyshire. Our professional theatre practitioners will work with the group to make a performance to share for friends and family.”

There are 50 places available (25 for 8-11 year olds and 25 for 12–16 year olds). The whole week costs £65 per person. To book, email Matt Clay at:
