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 week, the group will create their own version of the story inspired by Roald Dahl’s delightful tale of friendship and loyalty James and the Giant Peach. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for family and friends 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 not only create their version of James and the Giant Peach through ensemble work. How will be build a giant peach, who will they find living inside and will the escape the clutches of the wicked Aunts Spiker and Sponge? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved; who knows what strange and wonderful dreams and characters can be created and what worlds their audiences will be transported to?

Not only will they received 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 week of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends.
