THE REP ANNOUNCES SOCIALLY DISTANCED SUMMER SCHOOL FOR 7-18 YEAR OLDS
Birmingham Repertory Theatre has announced that they will be hosting two Summer Schools this August: Theatre Making (3-7 Aug) for those aged 13-18 and Spy School (10-14 Aug) for ages 7-12. Both sets of five-day workshops have the option for in-person tuition and interaction in The REP’s rehearsal rooms under COVID-safe conditions or online digital classes.
Both programmes of online classes have also been made available to West Midlands Virtual Schools’ Connect & Create programme featuring specially selected arts and cultural activity for children and young people in care. A limited number of bursary places for the in-person sessions have been made available to support access for people facing financial barriers for both Theatre Making and Spy School. These bursaries have been made possible thanks to generous individual donations to The REP.
Each Summer School will have a strictly limited number of participants for the workshops held within The REP’s rehearsal rooms. Each participant will be assigned a marked 4m² space, and extra elements such as hotspot cleaning, PPE for First aiders and coordinated drop off and collections times will be employed.
