Summer School


About

Our show-in-a-week takes place annually during the Summer holidays and is a spectacular experience for any child aged 4 to 14 years old who love theatre and performing (students who’ve just completed school years reception to year 10 at the time of the show). Students spend up to 8 days, depending on their age group, learning a full musical before putting on 2 shows with costumes, sets, lighting and sound all set on a beautiful and professional stage – rehearsals during the week take place at our permanent premises at CMG Arts, Ware, Hertfordshire. 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. To book, please login to your parent portal and book your child’s place – Please note, booking for our summer school 2023 will not open until 1st February 2023.
