Held in late July at Jackdaws
A week long performance project for children aged 10 to 17 years
The 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. Summer 2021 dates; Monday 26 to Friday 30 July 2021.
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 the Friday afternoon.
The Production Team is led by Artistic Director Saffron, alongside a designer, Sarah Lawton, and a composer, William Carslake, who will help the children to create an original production from concept to performance for an audience of family and friends.
The week begins with 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.
