Jackdaws Summer Production

Monday 27th July – Friday 31st July 2014

This summer Jackdaws will be hosting their popular activity week from Monday 27 to Friday 31 July for children aged 11 years and over. The Summer Production is always a fun, stimulating and exciting way to spend a week in the summer holidays, discovering how to create a show from scratch!

The project will be led by Jackdaws Artistic Director Saffron van Zwanenberg. Working with composer/conductor William Carslake and an artist/designer, the team will help to create an original production from initial ideas through to a live performance for an audience of family and friends.

The children will be asked to consider three options pitched by each of the production team and then vote on which they think will make the best combination of music, plot and staging. Then the work begins! Then, assisted by the production team, the group will create the show over the course of the week and perform it on the Friday.

The Summer Production runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm every day.
Friday ends with the performance in the village hall at 5pm.

Jackdaws’ Summer Production is open to all, with no experience required – just bring enthusiasm and energy! The cost of the week is £60 per place. For more information or to book a place, please call Jackdaws on 01373 812383 or email music@jackdaws.org.uk
