Summer School


About

Our show-in-a-week takes place annually during the Summer holidays and is a spectacular experience for any child aged 6 to 14 years old (at the time of the show) who loves theatre. Students spend up to 7 days, depending on their age group, learning the full 1 hour musical before putting on 2 shows with costumes, sets, lighting and sound all set on stage at Heath Mount School – rehearsals during the week take place at our main venue, Wildhill Village Hall. Students come away from this week, not only having had an incredible performance experience but also having made unforgettable memories and new friends. This week is open to all students, including those who don’t currently attend CPA and we do not require an audition to sign up. If your child attends another dance or performing arts school, please seek the permission of their principal before enrolling. So, what are you waiting for – get in touch to find out more or login to your parent portal to book your place! Don’t have a parent portal yet? No worries, get set up HERE.
