» What will I study

Our two-week Summer Schools introduce a range of different drama techniques in a fun, safe and active environment. They will also improves your confidence, self-esteem and communication skills.

You can choose the area of theatre that appeals to you most, or, if you are considering a career in drama, you can extend your range by trying a number of different disciplines.

The first week of each specialism focuses on building towards a performance, which takes place during the second week. Students can attend the first or both weeks, but cannot join the performance for the second week only.
