The Torch Theatre is thrilled to announce a programme of Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre Summer Schools for children and young people, taking place in August this year at the Torch. Places can now be booked for some great summer fun with new friends, boundless creativity and heaps of learning.

This year, the Torch Summer School includes the following:

The week-long Torch Drama Workshops are led by industry experts and both weeks will end in a sharing performance on the Torch Theatre stage with parents and guardians invited to come along and watch (no charge).

The sessions each day are drama led and involve fun, games, challenges and opportunities to learn new drama skills and perform in a safe environment – everything you would expect from the Torch Youth Theatre.

The Junior Youth Theatre Drama Summer School, for 7 to 10 years old, is during the week: 

Monday 1st to Friday 5th August – from 9.30am to 4.00pm

The cost for both week-long workshops is £60 per child and £50 for a sibling for both Junior and Senior age groups.
