Annual Summer School

Mon 31st July to Fri 4th

August 2023




We are delighted to announce another fun-filled activity week for 7 to 16 year-olds during the Summer holidays this year. ABBACADRA – MAMA MIA.i

In previous years, the upper age limit has been restricted, so this year the Summer School has 2 sections: the younger students are working on the early ABBA musical ABBACADABRA, whilst the older students prepare extracts based on the current West End hit musical.  All the groups will feature the classic songs such as SOS, Dancing Queen and Voulez-Vous!  As with past Summer Schools, such as Beauty & the Beast, MATILDA and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, the week will consist of daily classes in:


***Acting *** Singing *** Dancing***


- starting at 9.30am and finishing at 4.30pm.  In addition to the three performance classes, there will be daily specialities, from props and scenery creation to make-up design.  There will be a distinct Senior extension class for 14 years + only.  We hope to be able to return to the Exeter Phoenix for our end-of-week show for friends and family!


The teachers this year will include Ian Trafford and Tanya Euridge, amongst others.  The Summer School takes place at Stage Studios, which will be open each day from 8.50am, closing at 4.30pm.  The standard cost of the Summer School week will be £155.00 per person.  A non-refundable deposit of £25.00 is payable to secure a place on the activity week.  The balance is payable by 1st July.




If you would like to book a place, please complete the slip below.  Further details and timetables will be issued in early June.  Since space is limited, all places will be filled on a first come- first served basis.  Early booking is advisable as spaces are strictly limited.
