Hull Truck Theatre’s Creative Learning team have prepared a special summer programme for children and young people.
On 2 and 3 July, we join forces with St Mary’s College to help the young people of Hull re-imagine the greatest love story ever told. Each evening, 5 classes from different schools will re-tell the story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in new, imaginative and exciting ways.
On 6 July, we ask ourselves: “What would happen if new rules and laws were made by young people?”. Our Turn, a sharing of work by our Youth Theatre groups and partner school Winifred Holtby, presents their ideas for a different world.
Our Youth Theatre groups consist of Juniors (School Years 3-6), Seniors (School Years 7-9), and Winifred Holtby group consists of students from their Acting Scholarship programme.
Our Turn has been devised by our Hull Truck Theatre Youth Theatre groups and is directed by Hannah Tomlinson and David Whitney.
Our Creative Learning team have also prepared a range of fun summer activities.
The Secret Agent Academy is a project designed by Hull Truck Theatre for children aged 7 to 11 that involves spending a week at the theatre working with our Secret Agent Team and being part of an exciting summer spy adventure. The adventure will include creating secret identities, following suspects, deciphering codes, and taking part in activities and workshops. The Secret Agent Academy takes place Monday 5th August to Friday 9th August 2019 between 9am – 3.30pm every day at Hull Truck Theatre. Cost for the week is £55 per participant.
Summer Scream is our Play in a Week summer school aimed at any young person aged 11 -16.
The project involves solving a mysterious murder case. Over the week participants will develop a plot with a theatre director and will create interesting characters which will result in a performance for parents and friends at the end of the week where our case will be solved. Participants will also get the chance to be their own detective and work out clues along the way that will help the team in the final showdown.
