From script writing to performing and learning theatre making skills – the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven is offering all of this and more this summer with our renowned annual Summer Schools. The schools are for people of all ages and will be led by the Torch Theatre’s in-house professional team.

There are two events to choose from Tall Tales (age seven to 11) and Hear Us Roar (age 11 to 18) with all these activities supported by The Ingles Charitable Trust and The Port of Milford Haven.

TALL TALES is the first event of the Summer Schools programme and will take place daily from Monday 31 July through to Friday 4 August. The sessions run from 10am to 3pm and will see participants create their own fairy tale filled with fantastic adventures and magical quests.

The second Summer School is Hear Us Roar and will be held from Monday 7 August to Friday 11 August with daily sessions starting at 10am until 4pm. In just a week, the young people will create a short play exploring the things that matter to them - involving improvisation, script writing, and devising techniques.

We haven’t forgotten about those aged 18+. For the first time ever, we are offering an adult’s evening summer school. Show off! runs Monday 21 August to Saturday 26 August, with sessions Monday to Friday running from 6pm to 9pm, and Saturday running all day from 10am to 9pm (including a showcase performance in our studio space). Spend a week of evening sessions developing your skills in performing with expert tutors.

All these provisions include a sharing at the end of the week at no additional cost, where up to four guests can come to watch.

Tim Howe is the Senior Manager for Youth & Community and is eagerly looking forward to welcoming people to the Summer Schools. He said:

“Come along and be creative, and most of all have fun and make new friends! You might not want to be in the limelight and appear on stage, you may prefer to be behind the scenes, writing and directing. We can cater for all abilities, and we offer the warmest of welcomes to all with our inclusive and accessible sessions.”

Tim added: “We are aware that finances are tight and we are more than happy to discuss payment plans with you so that you can take part with us, after all, theatre is for everyone.”
