Belgrade Theatre Summer School is back!

Summer School is our annual week-long (Mon – Fri) drama programme, open to young people aged 8-12 years.

Whether you’ve performed on stage lots of times before, or whether you want to try something new, Summer School gives an opportunity for each young person to shine.

Participants will take part in practical drama sessions, led by professional theatre-makers. Each day we will develop our performance skills, and we will create our own brand-new piece of theatre which we will share with an invited audience of family and friends on the Fri afternoon.

Taking part in Summer School is a really exciting way to send a week of the Summer Holidays. Participants are able to spend time in a welcoming and supportive space, where they can develop confidence, improve their team-working skills, make new friends, and have lots of fun!

We are committed to making sure that Summer School is inclusive and accessible for everyone. Please email if you have any questions about the programme.

Places for Summer School are limited, so early booking is recommended.

Cost: £150 per child for the full five days. Sibling discounts are available at 20% off for two siblings.

Join us this summer for a fun filled week of musical theatre as we work towards putting on performances of Matilda Junior in our Neville Studio Theatre, with book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence . . . and special powers! Though unloved by cruel parents Matilda makes an impression on her kind schoolteacher Miss Honey. School life isn’t plain sailing, especially as the mean headmistress Miss Trunchbull hates children and loves punishment. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts and could just be the school pupils saving grace!

For one week a group of young people will work together as a company to perfect the show and become the best bunch of ‘Revolting Children’ Nottingham Playhouse has ever seen.

Dates: Monday 19 - Saturday 24 August

Once booked on to the week, you will receive an email asking you to confirm an audition date in mid July.

We will be accepting bursary applications for this programme until midday on 5 July.

Over three days you will work alongside a professional Director, Choreographer and Musical Director to discover the process of bringing a musical from page to stage.

You will begin by learning how the director (Alex Sutton) approaches and analyses the script. You will then take part in workshops led by Matt Cole (Choreography) and Katy Richardson (Musical Direction) to understand how the initial ideas can then develop during rehearsals. In small, collaborative groups, you will create your own theoretical production of "Our House". With input from Rebecca Brower, a professional Theatre designer, and working alongside a team of actors, you will bring your visions to life, culminating in a presentation of your ideas to your course leader and peers. As the final part of your process, you will understand how to run a tech and dress rehearsal by observing rehearsals for the NYMT production of “Our House” alongside the creative team at the Southwark Playhouse Elephant.
