Creating the SetThe Summer Production is a fun, stimulating and exciting way for children aged 10 years and over to spend a week in the summer holidays discovering how to create a show from scratch. This summer Jackdaws host their popular activity week from Monday 31 July to Friday 4 August.

Jackdaws’ Summer Production is open to all, with no experience required – just bring enthusiasm and energy!

Assisted by the production team, the group will create their show over the course of the week and perform it live to an audience on Friday 4 August.

The Production Team is led by Artistic Director Saffron, a designer Sarah, and composer Will, who will help the children to create an original production from concept to performance for an audience of family and friends.

The week begins a choice of three stories, three composers and three design themes. The children must consider the options before voting for those they think will make the best combination of music, plot and staging… and then the work begins! Have a read of the 2015 Summer Production report.

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

The cost of the week is £70 per place (Some assisted places available – please contact us for details)
