This five-day summer school is aimed at young people aged 8 to 11 years old interested in developing drama skills, working as part of a team and being creative.

- Developed skills in performance, devising and collaboration
- Engaged in a number of theatre-making techniques
- Explored, developed and creatively expressed their own thoughts and ideas
- Created and performed an original piece of theatre
'When I grow up I wanna be famous I wanna be a star I wanna be in movies'
The Pussycat Dolls, X-Factor, Big Brother, The Only Way is Essex - the fast track to being famous!
But what is the measure of true fame and true talent? Where is the line between the public and the private?
Throughout the week participants will work with two experienced tutors to explore the ‘Pursuit of Fame’ - can it bring you lasting happiness? Or is it as fleeting as last week’s fashion accessory?
Working in a variety of different ways with text, movement and video, the participants will investigate what fame means in our society and what they think of that.
Using the participants’ own thoughts and discoveries of the week’s investigation, the course will conclude with a sharing of the work created by the group.
