Arc news: May 2008


Arc summer theatre school 2008 now booking!

2008 sees the launch of our brand new summer theatre school at Arc's new home, The Malthouse Studios in Barking.


Over five half-day sessions (mornings or afternoons), children will learn and develop drama and theatre skills in fun-packed workshops led by our highly-experienced team of actors and facilitators. Each week will end with an informal sharing for friends and family. No experience is needed to join in, just plenty of energy and enthusiasm!

Specially for children from 8 to 12 years of age, the workshops will run over two weeks:

Week 1: Monday 28 July to Friday 1 August   

Week 2: Monday 4 to Friday 8 August

Choose from 10am to 1pm daily, or 2pm to 5pm daily each week at £58.75 per child for 5 morning or afternoon sessions (second and subsequent siblings will receive a 10% discount). Prices include VAT at 17.5%.
