East Riding Theatre’s Summer Schools are back and this year there is something for everyone!

Young people will develop skills and improve their confidence in acting, movement, singing and even circus skills! No experience is necessary – just plenty of enthusiasm and a commitment to taking part, having lots of fun and making new friends.

This is a unique opportunity to take part in creating an original piece of theatre and performing it on a professional stage. 

This year’s summer lift off will be led by director Mike Friend who has worked in performing arts education all his life. He was the founder and director of Performing Arts at Hurtwood House for 14 years, has directed national productions for Stagecoach and currently works at the Lyttelton Arts Factory in New Zealand. Mike has established an education programme that has over 140 students in music, theatre and dance. Mike has also had a long relationship with ERT and directed Christmas CarolOliver Twist and Sparrow.
