Theatre school for kids this summer

Derby LIVE will host its first ever Enchanted Entertainment Musical Theatre School at the Guildhall Theatre in the city from July 28-August2.

Enchanted Entertainment, producers of the Easter Pantomimes that have visited both the Assembly Rooms and Guildhall Theatre in previous years, are planning a fun-filled week for local children aimed at improving their musical theatre performance skills.

The Summer Musical Theatre School will also include two special performances on-stage by the students themselves, for their friends and family, on the final day.

Musical director Jezz Weatherall said: “We’re really looking forward to returning to Derby with this fantastic week-long series of workshops. The Summer Musical Theatre School will centre on singing, acting and dancing performance techniques as well as general stage craft and will give us the opportunity to spend more time working with the children and passing on our professional training.”

The Summer Musical Theatre School will run from 9am-5pm daily, open to children, aged 8-16, regardless of experience. Places are £120 for the week. Call 01332 255800.
