The Princess Theatre – Burnham-on-Sea 10.00 – 2.30pm
Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st December 2023.
Over the week, you will be creating your own Pantomime, from scratch, with
some of Somerset’s most exciting professional theatre makers. During the
action-packed four days working with Somerset Youth Theatre, you will make an
original pantomime that you will perform in Burnham-on-Sea at the Princess
Theatre at the end of the week. Do not worry if you are not keen to perform –
there is something for everyone and we will support you to learn new skills in
making costumes and learn about lights and sound for shows.
The Week Will Include:
Acting, Directing and Making a Play:
Join Performer & Director Selina Keedwell & learn the skills to make and create
your own pantomime, that is sure to make your audience laugh (and maybe even
cry!). Using a well known story, participants will work together to make a
pantomime in 3 days (oh no they won’t), and rehearse and perform to the
audience on the 4th day (oh yes they will). Hone your skills in acting and/or
directing – the choice is yours. No experience necessary, and a willingness to play a
Dancing & Singing:
Ever wondered how performers remember their moves and come up with ideas?
Join Angela Smith to learn skills in dancing, performance and choreography, with
your friends and as part of a cast. Create your own movement and learn dance
skills in Street Dance & Musical Theatre to help tell your very own story to an
invited audience. No dance experience necessary and suitable for all abilities.

Each day you will receive a hot meal, dessert, snacks and drinks and eat with
friends old and new. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Participants will receive a ‘Make It At Home’ pizza kit as included within the cost of
£25 per day or £85 for the full 4 days
