Summer Stage is aimed at young people aged 13 to 17 who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in a performing arts summer school.

Summer Stage is not open to young people that have participated in the programme previously. 

This application does not secure your place on the programme – we will call you before confirming places.


Each one-week course costs just £60 per participant and includes:

  • 5 full day Drama workshops led by industry professionals
  • 5 x sandwich lunches
  • A ticket to see a West End show (with the rest of the group).

We have a limited number of full (or part funded) bursary places available – please indicate on your application if you would like to be considered for one of these. ​



If you cancel your place with more than 10 days’ notice from the start date of Summer Stage, we will issue you a full refund.

If you provide 10 days’ or less notice, we are unable to issue you a refund (unless we are able to reallocate your place to someone on the waiting list). 

If your young person is unable to attend due to illness which means they cannot attend 3 or more of the scheduled dates, we are able to offer 50% refund.
