The Brunton in Musselburgh is running a Musical Theatre Easter School in partnership with Tommie Travers. Following last year’s sell-out Fringe production of Oliver! there has been a real demand for similar experiences.

The Easter School is open to 8 - 16 year olds, and runs from Sunday 5 2020 - Thursday 9 April 2020, culminating in a Showcase Performance on the Thursday evening at The Brunton. The experience focuses on a variety of musical theatre songs which will be performed in the showcase. As the children learn these songs under the guidance of a professional team, they will develop vocal techniques, have the opportunity to learn dance routines and also take part in fun drama games which build confidence.

The cost to participate is £120, and tickets for the Showcase Performance will be £10 adult, £9 child, £34 family of 4. 

Book your space now, or for more information please email The Brunton Easter School.
