A fantastic set of summer courses!

Our summer academies were a huge success – Transylvania Express, The Lost Disco of Atlantis and OzWars were very well attended, enjoyed good weather and were brilliant fun. The shows were all stunning!

This year we tried out a couple of new things too. In our last show – OzWars, we performed a stunning UV sequence using rockets and planets made by the students!
