About Summer Project
The aim of Summer Project is to provide local young people with the opportunity to work in a professional theatre under the supervision of a highly-skilled production team including a professional director, choreographer, musical director and musicians.
The scheme has been evolving, getting bigger and brighter every year, providing local children with a unique opportunity to take an active interest in the arts, helping to build confidence, develop learning skills and uniting a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, whilst having fun in an imaginative and exciting environment.
Over the two week project, the theatre comes alive to the sound of children working incredibly hard learning their lines, rehearsing songs and practising dance routines, all with an enthusiasm and dedication that is unprecedented. Year on year we receive praise for the high standards that the show ultimately produces with such a young cast.
Our Summer Project is self-funding and non-profit making. The ethos behind it has always been to provide the best possible experience and training at the lowest possible cost to the local young people who get involved.
Summer Project inspires children that may not have access to theatre and provides a crucial artistic outlet for them during the summer holidays – ensuring they are kept entertained, off the streets and out of trouble.
Our Director and Co-Choreographer - Bree Smith
'I am very excited to be Directing and Co-Choreographing High School Musical at the Beck Theatre this summer. This show is my childhood favourite film and musical, and I hope to create a very inclusive and exciting environment for which the participants can thrive and play with their creativity. This production will be like none you've seen before; with fresh, new innovative ideas for choreography, you won't want to miss being part of this show!'
The Summer Project is run by The Beck Theatre on behalf of HQ Theatres Trust, Charity Registration Number: 1145989
