Rachel says

“Our summer school is great for anyone who wants to improve their confidence, make some friends and develop their talent. Confidence building is a key element in my workshops, I think it is extremely important; even if a career in drama is not something that interests you having confidence and self belief will help you in all aspects of your life. We are accepting young adults aged between 14 and 21 with a range of experience, so it does not matter if you have never done it before. For those that already have a passion for drama, dance and singing this is an incredible opportunity to work with West End cast members on the top West End shows. You will learn the choreography, staging and songs straight from the West End stage and we will work on extracts from a different West End show each day, taught by West End cast members.

 There are talks every day where you can ask the professionals any questions about drama school, working in the West End, touring the Uk, and anything you want to know about the profession. On the last day there will be an opportunity to perform your own song for the West End Panel and get some feedback. This is optional, so don’t panic if you haven’t sung before, but it’s a great chance to try out a new song, or get some audition experience.
So if you would like to work on West End shows with West End cast members we would love you to join us this summer”
