Summer on Stage 2023: Juniors Performance Course

Summer on Stage provides the unique opportunity to develop performance and backstage skills in Scotland's leading producing theatre, followed by the opportunity to perform on the Lyceum's main stage - just one example of The Lyceum's dedication to developing Scotland’s considerable indigenous talents!

If you’re passionate about performing, want to learn about the technical aspects of theatre, or if you're just looking for a new challenge, then take a look at our groups below.

We offer a limited number of bursaries to support young people participating in Summer on Stage at The Lyceum. For information on bursaries please email.

Suitable for ages 11-13, this performance course is for anyone who is interested in improving their storytelling skills, building confidence, and performing as an ensemble. This year's course will be staging The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken, adapted by Russ Tunney.

A thrilling adventure set in an alternative history of England, the play tells the story of two brave and determined girls as they fight against ferocious wolves and battle their way through wastelands to defeat their very evil guardian, Miss Slighcarp.

This exciting, fun filled adaptation sees cousins Bonnie and Sylvia and their friend Simon the Gooseboy encountering a host of unforgettable characters as they discover that the wolves roaming the forests and fields outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside. Featuring a chorus who narrate, sing and comment on the action, and plenty of opportunities for song and dance for those who want it, as well as some plotting, scheming and danger.

Directed by Heather Johns.
