Unleash your child’s creativity with The Met this Summer!

Does your child love performing? Are you looking for theatre to make your little one’s summer? Children aged 6-10 are invited to join us for our very own Summer School! One whole week full of fun-filled days of drama and all things fun where they will have the chance to create their own brand-new piece of performance.

Over the whole week children will be able to:

  • Devise and perform their own scenes.
  • Play drama games, learning skills in theatre performance.
  • Make theatre, using props, costume, music and imaginations!
  • Improve acting skills in a fully-supported, inclusive environment.
  • Build confidence, have fun and make new friends.

Inspired by the classic children’s novel James and The Giant Peach, young people will get an opportunity to perform at the end of the course for friends and family. All of this delivered in a safe and friendly space by our very own Madeliene who runs Bury Youth Theatre Juniors and Aiming High!

Secure your place through the booking link. There’s only room for 20 little ones so book fast!

If you have any questions in advance of booking, please contact education@themet.org.uk.
