As well as all this we are very lucky this year to have a Casting Agent join us from Manchester to run Casting and TV Acting workshops, this will be great experience for students who want to perform professionally and add valuable skills to their performance CV. We are also pleased to announce that we have a West End Star from the famous musical Les Miserables leading a musical theatre workshop. As well as all these exciting workshops we also have a professional photographer who will take headshots of each student which will be available for you to buy.

Summer Theatre Week
Monday 3rd August- Friday 7th August 2015, 9am- 4pm at St. Mary’s College Blackburn. The Drama Circle’s Summer Theatre Week is for anyone aged between 6 and 14 who love the arts and want an opportunity to perform. Our Summer Theatre Weeks are great fun and are always a huge success, we take well known stories and tales and retell them in a modern way alongside popular music to sing and dance to. The first 4 days will be workshops within the disciplines of Dance, Drama and Singing; where we will work on developing a script to perform to an audience. On the Friday we will put the whole performance together. This will involve technical and dress rehearsals; adding lighting, sound, costume and a stage crew to then perform on stage in front of an audience, the performance starts at 5pm on the Friday.
