Theatrical events coming soon at the Pump House…

Pump House CYT presents:

Honk Jr

"This is the delightful award-winning musical adaptation of the beloved Hans Christian Anderson ugly duckling fable. Ugly looks quite a bit different from his duckling brothers and sisters.  The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be."

On With The Show presents:

On With The Show Productions Summer 2018

There's no better way to keep four to 16 year olds occupied than getting them involved with a local production.

On With The Show Productions (OWTS) is a two week summer project, at the Pump House, from 30th July to 10th August 9:30am - 3pm ( early sessions available from 8am)

OWTS has more than 16 years experience in performing arts and that experience is used to involve the students in all aspects of putting on a show - the back stage crew, sound and lighting, costume and set-design, directing and script writing through to performing. All the hard work is then presented in two shows on the final day of the project.

The two weeks is all about making friends, learning new skills, working as part of a team and putting on a show to be proud of.

Experience and ability is not necessary as the ethos behind OWTS is to encourage everyone to get fully involved, build confidence and many students discover talents they didn't know they had.

Check out or email: for more information

Dates of project: 30th July - 10th August 2018  9:30am - 3pm ( early drop off available from 8am)
