We run holiday programmes twice a year; one in the February half term and during the Summer Holidays.
In the February half term project students work together and with experienced directors/choreographers to stage a musical for friends and family. This programme caters for all age groups – younger students attend for half days, whilst older students attend for full days. The week culminates with all students coming together in performance at the end of the week. Previous Half term Projects have been ‘Annie Kids’, ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’.
Each Summer we run two mini-musical projects for 3-6 year olds. These short, fun scripts, give students the chance to explore what it means to perform, develop the ability to work as part of the group as well as encouraging communication skills and developing confidence. These projects are great fun and students love showing friends and family their performances at the end of the week.
Our Summer Shakespeare project runs annually for 7-17 year olds. Over the course of a fortnight, students work with professional directors to form an ‘acting company’, rehearsing one of Shakespeare’s Plays. Every student has a role to play and practitioners ensure that their experience of working on Shakespeare, the way it was intended to be studied – as a performance piece – is one that will stay with them for a lifetime. Our Summer Shakespeare is a great, light-hearted introduction to the bard for younger students and a chance for older students to enjoy Shakespeare, outside of the classroom in a fun, creative environment.

“My daughter has been doing drama classes for two terms now in Reception class and looks forward to them each week with great excitement. Kirsty has a wonderful, charismatic way with the children, building their confidence, self-expression and listening skills in a way that any parent would find invaluable. Thanks Kirsty!’
Both my daughters have got so much from their Reflect drama experiences. The holiday workshops have been a great success – with lots of enthusiastic rehearsing at home as well as during the sessions. They love going to Wednesday drama club and it is fantastic seeing their confidence grow with the support and encouragement of Kirsty and her team. Reflect Productions is a professional organisation that succeeds in getting the best out of a diverse group of children, whatever their ability and confidence level. Seeing the smiles of pride and pleasure on their faces at the end of their shows is testament to this.
Thank you so much for this week, despite being unsure at the start, Jake has had a brilliant time and we thought the show today was great!! His first words when he came out was please can I do the next show…
