Summer Youth Projects at The Crescent Theatre 2009

This summer young people can take to the stage as The Crescent Theatre hosts three fun-packed youth theatre projects, each lasting for a week (Monday to Friday) and finishing with a performance for the family and friends of those taking part.

Our summer projects offer the experience of a lifetime. Local young people will have the chance to do something different, creative and challenging.

Led by a qualified youth theatre worker, and supported by experienced actors and directors, each project will help its young participants develop their skills, grow in confidence and make new friends. There are projects for different age groups, and each has a distinct theme. Each project involves acting, movement and voice work – plus loads of fun too!

Projects last for five days (Monday to Thursday 10am till 4.30pm, Friday 10am till late) and culminates with a performance for family and friends on the Friday evening. Each participant will receive two free tickets for the final showcase.

Those taking part can expect intensive – yet fun – exposure to many aspects of theatre and will learn new skills while growing in confidence in a safe and friendly environment. And you get a free t-shirt, all for just £100 per week.

Additional information (or the boring stuff for adults)

Please check your child’s availability before booking a place as cancellations will be subject to a £25 cancellation fee.

We do everything we can to ensure that all young people have an enjoyable experience, however if anyone chooses not to continue with the project once it had started, or withdraw due to illness, we are unable to provide a refund.

Unfortunately, summer project staff cannot assume responsibility for any participants arriving before 10am, except for Breakfast Club members (see below).

All adults with access to students during the projects are CRB checked and approved to work with young people.

Participants failing to abide by summer project rules will be expelled from the workshop. Under these circumstances no refund will be given.


We reserve the right to refuse admission in reasonable circumstances.

Breakfast Club

Can’t hang around till 10am? Need to drop the young people off early? Or, just can’t wait to get rid of them? We have the solution! For just an extra £20 per week you can drop off your child from 8.30am at our ‘Breakfast Club’ where they’ll be fully supervised until it’s time for the fun to start.
