Shrek-tac­u­lar way to spend the sum­mer

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SUC­CESS: Milton Keynes Theatre sum­mer school SUM­MER 2015 has been a whole lot brighter and more fun than it might oth­er­wise have been for 17 lo­cal chil­dren, aged be­tween six and 10 years of age.

You could even say that it’s been a ‘Shrek­tac­u­lar’ suc­cess.

Thanks to the Univer­sity of Bed­ford­shire, which spon­sored all the places, the chil­dren took part in a five-day course themed around this sum­mer’s mon­ster of a show at Milton Keynes Theatre, Shrek The Mu­si­cal!

The chil­dren spent the Dis­cover and Ex­plore week do­ing... just that.

They ex­plored back­stage, to see what re­ally goes on be­hind the scenes and they dis­cov­ered the fun of tak­ing part in art and drama-based ac­tiv­i­ties, all the while work­ing to­wards gain­ing an Arts Award.

By col­lect­ing and record­ing their arts ex­pe­ri­ences in a log as they went through the week, they were able to build up a port­fo­lio that demon­strated their cre­ativ­ity and led to them gain­ing a recog­nised award.

And, if that wasn’t en­ter­tain­ment enough, the kids joined the au­di­ence to watch a mati­nee per­for­mance of Shrek, the big­gest, bright­est mu­si­cal com­edy around.
