Three-day young performers production workshop

29th - 31st July 2024
Suitable for children age 5 - 7

🎉 Get ready to move it, move it! 🎶

Our 2024 summer production workshop will see students stage Madagascar Jr - the musical extravaganza based on the beloved animated film!

We're thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for young performers aged 5-7! For the first time ever, we're opening up our summer workshop to younger talents. This exciting experience will culminate in a full-scale production at Theatre Severn.



This workshop will run from 10am - 3pm on Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th July, Wednesday 31st July from Wigle Studios, 1-2 Princess Street, the Square, Shrewsbury. If you require an earlier drop off - this can be arranged at a small extra cost. 


Our older performers will be cast in principal roles and will put together the full 65 minute show from our other studio space over two weeks. Our younger performers will rehearse for three days and join them on stage for the following musical numbers:


It's showtime 

I like to move it, move it

Together forever

I like to move it, move it finale


Following the three-day workshop at Wigle Studios - The children will then be 'called' to Theatre Severn 90 minutes before their performance time and stay with us until the performance is over. The running time for Madagascar Jr is approx 65 minutes.

We are currently offering 18 spaces on this workshop which will see the children split into three performance teams as follows:

Initially we will open up 6 spaces for each team. If there is particular demand for a particular team, we will look to add more tutors and therefore more spaces in this class.


Performance team A will perform alongside the older children at Theatre Severn on Thursday 1st August at 6pm

Performance team B will perform alongside the older children at Theatre Severn on Friday 2nd August at 1pm

Performance team C will perform alongside the older children at Theatre Severn on Friday 3rd August at 4pm

When booking, you are required to select your performance team option. You are then welcome to go ahead and purchase tickets for that performance from Theatre Severn. Tickets are on sale now.
