The Cresset, in Bretton and Wildcats have formed a partnership to provide Musical Theatre classes and holiday activities including Summer and Easter school at the venue. The classes will enable children from across the area to work towards Musical Theatre examinations, performances and events throughout the year using a mixture of traditional and modern musicals such as The Sound of Music, Wicked and Hairspray. The holiday programmes offered will enable children to work towards fully licensed performances of shows such as High School Musical, Camp Rock, Aristocats and Annie. The school plans to develop further classes at The Cresset including GCSE Performing Arts and the national Arts Award programme over the coming year.
