Summer School 2014

Masque Youth Theatre is pleased to announce that it will be running a Summer school this year. Our summer school will offer members and non-members the opportunity to work alongside three professional practitioners and gain experience in new areas of theatre.

This five-day course would also be the perfect opportunity for prospective new members as the sessions will be overseen by the current leaders who will lead warm-ups and introduce our visiting practitioners. The Friday will be dedicated to working towards a performance for the evening (6pm until 7pm) where attendants’ friends, parents and guardians will be able to see the work produced.
