Play in a Week
This year’s Play in a Week Summer School will create a brand-new re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland brought to life and performed at the Mercury by young people taking part in this fun holiday club.
Just five days to create a brand-new piece of theatre, rehearse the show, learn the dance routines, make up songs, make the props, find the costumes, sell the tickets, make new friends, prepare the set and learn about all aspects of professional theatre…challenge accepted!
Give your child a playful memorable experience this summer!
Play in a week is led by actors, directors, choreographers and musical directors who have previously worked in the West End, and who can offer their craft and experience to your young people to help them put on a play in a week. Give your child a playful memorable experience this summer!
