For all the little performers out there, a whole week to re-create your favourite musical theatre moments, learn and develop your acting, dance and singing skills and get to perform for your family at the end of the camp in mac Hexagon Theatre.
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 12 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.
The course is accessible for children of all abilities. A learning support worker is provided and a parent or carer may assist their child if required. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.
Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.
What will you learn on this course?
On this course children will have the opportunity to learn many of the skills and techniques of musical theatre including dancing, acting, singing and directing. The course covers drama games, learning to read lines and using different accents, building characters, learning to develop a stage presence, learning dance routines, vocal projection and singing and performing with hats and props and lots of fun and laughter.
The group will be able to choose which musicals they like such as Mary Poppins and Annie (2014), and we will work on musical numbers and scenes from them. Families and friends can attend an informal sharing on the final part of the camp.
MAC CREATIVE CAMPS take place during school holidays, the camps run from between 2-5 days and offer intensive learning experiences across a variety of art forms. The last day of the camp may include a sharing event or performance for parents.
Our camps run from 10am to 3pm each day, with a 1-hour lunch break and children are fully supervised at all times by experienced DBS-checked staff.
Optional Childcare Add-Ons
However, we know families have differing needs so we’ve structured optional add-on elements to help busy parents.
- 4 additional hours of supervised childcare which fit around the course or camp, so that your child’s day runs from 8.30am – 5.30pm (flexible drop-off and collection times within these hours).
- During these hours we offer further fun activities and entertainment for your child including film-screenings and games, allowing them extra time with their friends.
- Please note that Extra Hours does not include any food.
- Lunch from our Café menu
- Afternoon snack
We provide vegan and vegetarian options and can cater for allergies and intolerances with notice. As an alternative you are welcome to provide a packed lunch, or if you would prefer to send your child with money to select from the café themselves, we will ensure they are accompanied by suitable trained staff.
Do I need to bring anything?
Children to wear comfortable clothing – preferably trousers, jogging bottoms or leggings with loose fitting top and trainers or pumps.
Participants should bring bottled water or a water based drink and their own lunch to eat on a supervised one-hour break if you are not opting to purchase the optional Childcare Add-ons with or without food.
