'We all loved the Summer School – such a feat in a short space of time! It was so well thought out and the children all performed brilliantly, clearly enjoying the experience and working as a team. Both of my children (5 and 11) want to return to Summer School again next year. Thank you Kaleidoscope!' Sally Jones (Parent)
Kaleidoscope’s 16th Theatre Summer School is at Priory School, Lewes. This year, participants will have the unique opportunity of working alongside a team of theatre professionals to learn a range of performance and back stage skills.
Each day starts with Drama Warm Up Games, and then everyone is divided into age-specific groups led by theatre specialists. During the week, participants will explore new skills and develop their talents in a selection of; Acting, Dance/Movement, Musical Theatre, Stage Fighting, Devised Theatre, Make-up, Puppet Making, Improvisation, Circus Skills, Mask Making, Exploring Shakespeare and lots more.
Older students are encouraged to work at a more challenging level so they experience a real taste of theatre life, while younger children have longer breaks, more games and are supported by our team of Teaching Assistants. As the week progresses, the children develop their confidence, learn new skills and make new friends.
On the Friday afternoon we open our doors at 2pm and welcome family and friends in to watch group presentations of some of the work that has been developed throughout the week.
Our Theatre Summer School course runs from Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August 10am – 4.00pm. Participants are fully supervised from the moment they arrive until they leave. All our staff have enhanced DBS certificates.
