Minimum of 6 lines per child in the end-of-week play

We don't like favoritism, every child should get their chance to shine.

Students can ask for less lines if they want.

That's why each child's character gets at least 6 lines end of week performance for parents


Each child is awarded with an International British Theatre School Certificate of participation with comments from their teachers.

This can be used to approach casting directors and agents in the industry as proof of your commitment to training

Costumes and scenery provided by us

There should be no hidden costs when it comes to enjoying your week.

Each child gets a high quality costume to borrow for the show before giving it back to our costume department

Shows filmed for convenience

We appreciate that some parents may be unable to watch the end of week shows.

That's why we film every show and send it onto parents within 72 hours.

Shows are never published for the public, - they are sent privately to parents.

  • Why are actors great with children?
    Actors are trained to be expressive, animated and confident people which is perfect when you are working with children. Our actors are very experienced with working with children throughout the year on school theatre tours, children's parties and pantomimes! Over the years we have built a strong and reliable team of 10 actors who love to meet new students online and help them begin their performance journeys. All of the tutors are experienced, native speakers of English with Enhanced DBS certificates which parents can request to view.
  • What will the children learn during the week?
    Our courses are a great way to help children to become more confident in speaking skills for their future working lives. With a 20-minute performance performed for their parents at the end of each week, students have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills in front of a crowd of parents - a very important tool for later in life. Students are given a copy of their performance as a tool to reach out to agents or show family and friends. ​ In addition, with water games, language games, arts and crafts and ball games in between our drama-based activities, our Holiday Camps are a great way to spend the holidays for all children!
