One week of theatre workshops to devise a performance of words, music, dance and physicality for a unique show: imagine and express your ideas about life and faith with dramatic twists an turns. Plus ridiculous games, indoor swims, outdoor trips and occasional minutes of mayhem. Stage-Fright encourages children to think creatively for themselves and with other. Find us at www.stage-fright.org.uk. This year, we are running together with our little sister Venture. See details below.
We make our home for the week at St Hugh's School in the small town of Woodhall Spa, deepest Lincolnshire - it is worth the long journey! Onsite facilities include the main hall with stage, indoor swimming pool, large playing field, large sports hall and an assault course.
Dormitories have up to 8 beds in each - all in the main building. The food is great and there's plenty of it :) The Stage Fright 1 and 2 dorms are all in the same building, but bedrooms for each age-group will be separate.
The Programme and The Team:
Stage-Fright 2 will be running alongside its little sister Venture – Stage-Fright 1 – same dates on the same site. For years, there has been a very happy relationship between the two, with many children moving from SF1 to SF2 when they’re old enough. Although we'll be sharing the same site, both will be running as separate Ventures with distinct teams of adult leaders assigned to each and nearly all activities happening in separate spaces around the site. All activities will be tailored carefully by each team to the relevant age-group, as always. One occasion when the two will come together is the final performance at the end of the week, when we know all our members will be keen to support each other’s creativity. The team: all our leaders enjoy a creative approach to expressing their faith. We're a vibrant mix of arts specialists and good honest youth work volunteers.
