Tuesday 22 August - Sunday 3 September 2017


The aim of Summer Youth Project is to provide youngsters aged 7 – 18 years with the opportunity to work together with a professional creative team. The thirteen day project culminates in four performances of a full-scale musical under the supervision of a highly skilled creative team all in less than 2 weeks!

The project provides local children with a unique opportunity to take an active interest in the performing arts and is a good foundation for those wishing to further their careers in this field.  As well as being actively involved in the arts, it helps our young cast build confidence,  develop learning skills, unite with a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, have fun in an imaginative and creative environment, and of course, make lots of new friends!  Summer Youth Project provides a crucial artistic outlet for children during the summer holidays. Over thirteen days Shaftesbury Arts Centre will come alive to the sound of children, working incredibly hard learning their lines, rehearsing songs and practicing dance routines, all with enthusiasm and dedication that is the ABOP way.

Fees for the Summer Youth Project are £200 per participant including a show t/shirt.
Under £16 per day.
