To mark the 100 celebrate of Roald Dahl, Take Part in the Art are running a series of Summer Holiday Workshops (Performing Arts/Arts & Crafts based activities) – 9am-3pm – £20/day or all 3 days for £50.
All workshops are held at their Wood Street Studios (next door to New Mills Art Theatre’s stage door). Children can attend for a single day or the whole 3-day workshop – there is no final showcase for these workshops, just a whole pile of fun! Role play, character analysis, games, craft activities, singing, dancing & plenty of drama!
Charlie & The Chocolate Factory – Wed 24, Thurs 25, Fri 26 August (closing date for bookings – Friday 19 August) – The musical is based on Roald Dahl’s deliciously dark tale of young Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka. When Charlie wins a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it’s the chance of a lifetime to feast on the sweets he’s always dreamed of. But beyond the gates astonishment awaits, as down the sugary corridors and amongst the incredible edible delights, the five lucky winners discover not everything is as sweet as it seems. A chocolate garden, an army of squirrels and the curiously peculiar Oompa-Loompas must be believed to be seen in this gigantic new musical that is choc-full of fantastical treats to dazzle your senses. Lots to explore during these 3-days, and maybe even a visit to our very own sweetie factory just up the road!
