Under the direction of the creative team from Tim Bray Productions’ Youth Theatre, students will have the opportunity to explore their performance skills, build confidence, and create a unique piece of theatre, ready to ‘Hit the Stage!’ at the end of the week with a free-entry outdoor performance for family and friends in the grounds of the Lakehouse. Fun and laughter are an essential part of the workshop as our young performers experience what it takes to get a show from the rehearsal floor to the bright lights of the stage.

 Families are invited to watch the final performance at 5.30pm on Friday in the Lakehouse grounds.

 Book early to secure a place for this school holiday theatrical escape as Hit The Stage!

NB: On Friday 26th Jan 2017, you may collect your child at 3pm as usual and return them at 4.30pm to prepare for the show OR your child may remain at the Lakehouse in our care until the show begins (please ensure they have food and drink to eat). There will be a sheet for you to sign midweek indicating if your child is remaining and also for you to indicate the number attending the performance.
