Musical Theatre: Live Production (ages 13-18) - Bonnie & Clyde

Summer School for Children and Young People


“Let’s commit the perfect crime!” 

Our Summer Schools department is proud to present the musical Bonnie & Clyde for our 2024 Live Production course!

This in-person, two-week summer school for young people aged 13 – 18 aims to create an inspiring, challenging and supportive environment for ambitious musical theatre performers to increase their performance experience focusing on the musical Bonnie & Clyde. 

This fast-paced summer school is for young people with previous performance experience. Over the 11 days students will work collaboratively on all the elements central to the creation of a musical theatre production. 

The course is practical, rigorous and aims to challenge participants both technically and creatively. Participants will experience a rehearsal process which works towards a performance in one of the Conservatoire’s performance venues. 

The process will be led by professional creatives with fully integrated support from BA Musical Theatre lecturers. Each student will benefit from exploring and work shopping material chosen specifically for the group. The guidance and insight offered will support each student’s growth through the project as well as provide an insight into the varying styles of teaching used at the RCS. 

By the end of the course students will have: 

  • Strengthened their acting, singing and dance skills through rehearsal and into performance 
  • Experienced a professional casting process 
  • Collaborated with technical and production students and staff through a fully-integrated technical process 
  • Worked collaboratively with a professional creative team including a Director, a Musical Director and Choreographer 
  • Worked towards a full integrated production as a Musical Theatre ensemble 
  • Present a sharing in one of the Conservatoire’s performance spaces

Please note the text of Bonnie & Clyde contains mild adult themes.
