This year’s production, The Sound of Music, took place in the last week of July 2018. And what a triumph! Photos will be coming soon, so watch this space.

A bit about us:
Each summer, the Summer Extravaganza puts on a musical or an opera in a week in July with children aged 8-17. In just five days the kids learn the words, play the music, dance the dances and paint all the sets and props, and put on the show on the Saturday morning. In recent years we’ve tackled everything from Little Shop of Horrors to Carmen (luckily in English!).

Faculty:
Jillian Leddra (Course Director)
Helen Hugh-Jones (Art & Administration),
Alasdair Melrose (Drama),
Olivia Hugh-Jones (Music),
Tim Murray (Pianist),
Sophia Priolo (Dance)
Eleni Rochat (Assistant)

And if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Helen at thesummerextravaganza@gmail.com

“Both my sons have joined the Summer Extravaganza over the last three years. I am never less than astonished at what they put on in such a short time. They build and paint the sets, play, sing, dance and act – and above all, have great fun. All ages happily mix together and then put on a show of real verve and quality. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”  Haydn Gwynne, winner of the WhatsOnStage Best Supporting Actress in a play as Margaret Thatcher in The Audience with Helen Mirren
