Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

WOR­RIED about be­ing bored over the sum­mer hol­i­days? Worry no more, as a brand new mu­si­cal sum­mer school is com­ing to Hare­field.

From Mon­day Au­gust 1 to Fri­day Au­gust 5, with a per­for­mance on the Fri­day evening, lo­cal chil­dren and teenagers can get in­volved in singing, danc­ing and act­ing at a spe­cial sum­mer school.

The school in­volves coach­ing by theatre pro­fes­sional Penny Lane, and builds to a per­for­mance of The Girl Who Saved Christ­mas writ­ten by Paul Alexander.

Singing teacher Penny said: “The Girl Who Saved Christ­mas is a brand new quirky fam­ily mu­si­cal about what hap­pens when Cap­tain Hook de­cides to elim­i­nate Santa and abol­ish Christ­mas (he’s fed up be­ing por­trayed as such a loser in so many Christ­mas pan­tos).

“Only Holly Ivers, the new­est, least pop­u­lar pupil at Cle­ment Clarke Moore Ju­niors can stop him – armed with just her de­ter­mi­na­tion and Tinker­bell’s spare fairy dust!

Mrs Lane said: “Why should chil­dren take part in the sum­mer school? Be­cause it’s the an­ti­dote to nor­mal school. You won’t be pun­ished for rais­ing your voice in class – in fact, we in­sist on it.

“If you think you might like singing or danc­ing or if you’ve ever wanted to see how sto­ries (and songs) work from the in­side, this is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to do that, have fun, and make new friends at the same time.”

The sum­mer school costs £145 per child, which in­cludes the week’s course and one ticket to the per­for­mance.
