The Summer Drama Activities

Acting - Improvisation - Mime - Musical Theatre - Dance - Film‑Making... and More!
A group in a session A group in a dance session Dining table scene
Keen at the start... Let's dance... Food, glorious food...
We have a great team of professional actors, dancers, and musicians to lead the activities - so the approach is very practical - 'don't talk about it - do it...' Yes, we do some Shakespeare - but Hamlet has been hit by a custard pie more than once!
We cover many aspects of theatre - improvisation, mime, choral speaking, working with texts, movement and dance, make-up - and musical theatre is not neglected either. If anyone has a favourite musical instrument, bring it along if you want to... and look out Andrew Lloyd-Webber!
Parents and friends make an invited audience for our fabulous end-of-the-week show, when everyone gets his or her moment 'centre stage'.
(We even have our own Oscar ceremony - Kit Harington and Daisy Ridley were said to have been devastated last year when neither won!)

Alternative diversions Custard Pies and Gags! The end of the show
A break from the drama... Just after the (Custard Pie!) fight scene in Hamlet
(Yes... Hamlet!)
We made it!

Slemish Barn

Slemish The holiday happens in SLEMISH BARN - an exciting new custom-built residential holiday venue in the gateway to the famous nine Glens of Antrim, between Glenann and Glencloy and within the shadow of Slemish Mountain, the first home of St Patrick in Ireland, where he was held as a slave. Slemish Mountain, clearly visible for miles around, is really not a mountain at all - it is the central plug of a long extinct volcano! It also offered protection to the Dothraki's camp when the nearby bog was used as a location for Game of Thrones.

The holidays are both residential and non‑residential and we generate a friendly family holiday atmosphere. Children sleep in comfortable en‑suite dormitories, and staff and children eat together in a dining room with views across to Slemish. Rehearsals, singing, dancing, filming, and improvisation are generally indoor activites but the spacious surroundings and the mountain behind us give terrific opportunity for taking the filming 'on location', as well as informal outdoor activities - and we get to the beach - which we have visited every year, in spite of the Irish weather! Onwards and upwards... as the famous Northern Irish song nearly says - '...from glen to glen and by the mounain side...' to Slemish Barn - and this year's fabulous Summer Drama Holiday...
