A play in a week is a fun filled drama workshop offering children aged 7 – 11 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.

Throughout the 5 days, the group will create their own version of the story inspired by the classic tale Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for family to enjoy. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork. Students can let their imagination run wild as they will create their version of the story through ensemble work. Could Grandpa Jo’s tales of Willy Wonka possibly be true? Will we ever find out the real story of the Oompa Loompas? Which of the golden ticket holders is the most awful? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved; who knows what strange and wonderful scenes and characters that can be created and what worlds their audiences will be transported to.

Not only will they receive guidance and help from our Facilitators, but they will be given props and costumes to help create the world of their play.

It will be a few days of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends.

Due to limited spaces available, it is recommended that parents/guardian’s book early to avoid disappointment. Early bird and sibling discount available, simply email us at for promo codes and booking information.

All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.
