Face the Music (age 14 -18) & Get Your Act Together (age 19 -25)

Two courses team up for a Shakespearean Comedy Spectacular, delivering some famous scenes from plays such as Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream all punched through with hit songs – jumping jukebox style!

Combining energetic musical innovation, idiotic fun and satirical sharpness, this show will raise some serious roofs.

Radio Active (age 19 – 90)

‘Friends, Romans, countrymen – lend us your voices’ for a full-throttle radio production of Julius Caesar. Expand your vocal techniques and use foley sound effects, to create a warlike audio landscape for this tale of betrayal and political ambition.

Stage by Stage (age 19 – 90)

They say All’s Well That Ends Well – but this year’s SBS production of one of Shakespeare’s less well-known comedies promises to be a class act from start to finish. Come and help to revive this intriguingly ‘modern’ European story, with parts for all.

Beyond the Lines (age 19 – 90)

A new course exploring writing and devising.  Using wonderful Shakespearean sonnets as your inspiration, tease out the stories they tell and then write and devise your own scenes. Combine your words with some of the most famous ever quilled, guided by an expert team of writers and theatre makers.


As those who have been to previous Summer Schools will know, around the edges of your chosen course, there will be loads of other things as well: rib-tickling, original performances from Riding Lights, a range of excellent workshops provided by a brilliant team of experienced professionals, the Big Warm-Up, creative prayer and worship and online social space, the Hubbub, where you can make new friends and catch up with a few old ones.


There will be a choice of workshops available for you to choose from during the Summer School. We will update you with further information about these as soon as we can.


As all courses are now being delivered online, there are a few technical requirements to meet so that you can attend. You will need an internet-connected device which can handle video conference calls (Zoom). Ideally, this will be a laptop or other computer, or a tablet. You may find it hard to undertake the whole event using just a smartphone. For Radio Active, you will also need some way to record audio and video – any device that can handle Zoom should be capable of this. Technical support will be available.

Any questions, feel free to get in contact with us.
