Monday 9:30am-3:30pm    Fun introduction and start creating a story idea. Any interest , skill or talent can be added into the story and all ideas are discussed.

                                                             The workshop leader then takes these ideas and creates a working script. Crafts and short music time slots on offer.

Tuesday 9:30am-3:30pm                 Creating and rehearsing. Making  the set/ setting the scene. Crafts and Short music time slots on offer.

Wednesday 9:30am-3:30pm           Super rehearsing and polishing ideas/ finishing set.

Thursday 9:30-2:30pm                     MORE rehearsing and getting ‘performance’ ready.


Students are free to leave after the performance with a parent and guardian.

We work with a sign in/ sign out method for collection and drop off unless the student is over 16 and we have the appropriate permission in writing.

The 5 day course is a similar timetable although these performances can be longer as there is an extra day to create!


Part of smile is to show off things you love and are good at BUT also to build confidence to try out the new. Our music Specialist is on hand for introductory Piano and Guitar lessons through out each day.


From 9:30- 3:30pm we have two small breaks ( 15-20 minutes) and one lunch break ( 45minutes- hour)with water and toilet stops whenever needed.

These can vary slightly in times as the students help decide when is best to take them around their creation and rehearsal.

Weather permitting we like to get outside for some of these breaks and students are encouraged to interact. Creative activities are on offer as well as game play organised by a member of staff.
