Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs.

Jefferson's monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians - who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves.

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 www.owts.co.uk or email: onwiththeshow@ntlworld.com for more information

For weekly sessions with regular community performances check out our new, innovative and exciting sister company www.pstheatre.co.uk 

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