A THEATRE group for youngsters in Kidderminster have announced plans for its first summer school.

The new venture by the Kidderminster Rose Young People’s Theatre (KRYPT), will run at the Rose Theatre on Chester Road North on Monday July 22 to Friday 26 from 10am to 4pm.

Over the course of the week, summer school members will make new friends, hone their acting skills, learn about the greatest playwright in history and collaborate to produce their own performance to parents and friends.

The summer school costs £120 for the week and each child attending will also receive some goodies to commemorate the week.

Spaces are available for both KRYPT term-time members and new individuals aged between eight and 18.

Meanwhile, KRYPT are currently in rehearsal for their last show of the season ‘The Light Burns Blue,’ to be performed on Saturday July 13 and Sunday July 14.

The play is inspired by the true story of the Cottingley Fairies: the case of two young cousins who in 1917, having supposedly taken photographs of ‘real fairies’ near their home in Yorkshire, who were invited by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the creator of Sherlock Holmes) to speak at a conference in London about their supernatural encounters.
