What is a Show in a Week?

We stage a musical in one week during the Summer Holidays, with children aged 8-13 taking all of the roles! This year, we are performing Disney’s Beauty and The Beast Jr!

Over the week, we will learn the show and rehearse it ready to perform for an audience at the end of the week on the Trinity stage.

Everyone who signs up gets cast in the show, with low-pressure auditions determining who takes on what role.

All cast members get a show t-shirt and digital copies of the show photos.

We provide the costumes, make-up, props and set, making the show look at brilliant as possible. Our young cast rehearse, perform, have fun, make friends and create memories that will last for years!

It costs £225 to take part in the week (that’s only £45 for each six-hour day of rehearsals!)

You can pay in whole upfront or in instalments which are due by the following dates (Instalment 1 is needed to confirm your space, which are allocated first-come, first-served):

  • Instalment 2: 17 April
  • Instalment 3: 17 May

We know times are currently financial tough for some families, and don’t want anybody who wants to come to be put off by the price. We have bursaries available via The Elliott Fund for those who need financial support.

Our shows often have waiting lists, and so refunds are only possible if we are able to find someone else to take your space once we have sold out.

What’s the Schedule?

  • Audition workshop: TBC
  • Rehearsals: Monday 5 August – Friday 10 August, 10am – 4pm at Trinity Theatre
  • Performances: Friday 10 and Saturday 11 August at Trinity Theatre

 

What’s Disney’s Beauty and The Beast Jr About?

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

With many fun supporting roles allowing students to play objects inside the castle, this “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular opportunities for young people to get involved with.

 

“A week of fantastic memories, opportunities to make new friends and fun and laughter. She thoroughly enjoyed every moment
