Holiday Workshops



In addition to our weekly classes, our Drama School Burton, Newhall and Derby holds both an Easter School in April and a Summer School in August every year. These holiday workshops have run successfully for 10 years; endless numbers of students have taken part and created a show in a week... that's no small task! Here, children between the ages of 5-18 years can come along and learn the songs, dances and drama from famous musicals and then perform in a full performance at the end of the week in front of family and friends.

To date our Easter and Summer Schools have included: An African Experience (2008), High School Musical (2009) The Wizard of Oz (2010) Oliver (2011) Disney’s Aladdin (2012) Disney’s Alice in Wonderland (Easter 2013) Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (Summer 2013) Disney's The Jungle Book (Easter 2014) Sweeney Todd (Easter 2014) Fame (Summer 2014) Disney's The Aristocats (Easter 2015) Disney's The Little Mermaid (Summer 2015) Disney's Peter Pan (Easter 2016) Annie (Summer 2016) Madagascar (Easter 2017) The Addams Family (Summer 2017) Hairspray (Easter 2018) and Matilda (Summer 2018)

Our Holiday School dates for 2019 are as follows:

Footloose - Easter School - Tuesday 23rd - Saturday 27th April 2019

Wizard of Oz - Summer School - Monday 29th July - Friday 2nd

    Both weeks will take place at The William Allitt School in Newhall from 9:30am-3:30pm each day. 

    Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind and The Wizard of Oz is a classic tale, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home. Both musicals have been entertaining audiences for generations and with songs including: “Over the rainbow”, “Footloose”, “Ding dong the witch is dead” and “Let's hear it for the boy” we are guarateed a toe-tapping two weeks of fun!

    Everyday your child will be busy learning the songs, dances and drama to then perform the full show on the final day in front of family and friends. A week of quality tuition from trained teachers in the musical theatre field who are DBS checked and first aid trained.

    Each week costs just £95 (less than £20 per day!) and is open to anyone aged 5-18 years with a passion for the performing arts.
