THEATRE | MARINE YOUNG COMPANY SUMMER SCHOOL | MONDAY 13 AUGUST – FRIDAY 17 AUGUST

In collaboration with the Northcott Theatre, we are offering an opportunity for 15 talented young people to make challenging theatre in a professional setting.

It’s a 5 day course for 11 to 15 year olds, culminating with a performance. Students will be spending a fun, practical week creating their own piece of theatre from scratch. They will devise the work as a ‘company’ and it will be centred on the life of the famous fossil hunter Mary Anning – a key figure in local history.

Previous experience of acting is not required, but desire and commitment are compulsory.

The sessions will be delivered by experienced drama tutor and Northcott team member Lizzie Hedden.

JOIN THE MARINE YOUNG COMPANY AND EXPLORE YOUR CREATIVITY!

Places can be secured with a 25% deposit.

A Lyme Regis Carnival special event

 

Children (0-10 yrs) and their families can hit the dance floor for a pre-carnival party. With a real DJ spinning records from the 70s to present day, this young people’s ‘club night’ is very different to a normal ‘children’s party’, with face painting and craft activities.

It’s win-win, with a safe environment for the children to have a great time, whilst adults socialise and have a drink.

Children must be accompanied.

Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of Millie Dillmount from Kansas who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East; her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage; and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name – or so he tells her. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. From explosive tap numbers to a Fred and Ginger routine on a window ledge!
