On With The Show presents:

On With The Show Productions Summer 2019

There's no better way to keep four to 16 year old 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 29th July to 9th 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.

Dates of project: 29th July - 9th August 2019  9:30am - 3pm ( early drop off available from 8am)
