This summer, Tobacco Factory Theatres is offering an exciting and unique opportunity for young people to take part in a week-long performance summer school delivered by highly experienced theatre makers. Participants will spend six days in the theatre, creating a brilliant show that they will perform to family and friends at the end of the week. Working with professional directors, musicians, and choreographers, the days will be jam-packed and lots of fun. Two summer schools will be offered – one for young people aged 13 to 19 and the other for eight to 12-year-olds – and multiple practitioners will be working on each. The theatre challenge for eight to 12-year-olds is all about Greek myths, Norse gods, Vikings, beasts and heroes! The older group will work with acting and musical experts to take on the musical myth of Orpheus: expect live music, bold theatre and lots of noise! Bursary places are available – email
