A performing arts project in collaboration with WWF
This summer we are inviting 80 young people (aged 10-15 years) from different educational backgrounds to come together for 5 days to write, compose, rehearse, and perform their own original contemporary opera in our magnificent Grange Festival theatre.
Working with a professional creative team led by Karen Gillingham (Director) and Jessica Maryon-Davies (Music director/composer) along with experts from WWF, participants will explore how we can work together towards a sustainable future.
Through interactive workshops, these young people will have the opportunity to develop a storyline; compose music; write lyrics; choreograph dance; and design and create sets and costumes. All of this will build the foundations for their own original production which will be performed on Friday 26 August at 6pm.
