The school takes place at Warwick Conferences in Coventry each year during the first week of August and offers a large selection of different courses each year, focussing on a range of different creative and technical areas in theatre. This year our five volunteers were split between the Lighting, Video Production, Design and Directing Musical Theatre courses.
The school is attended by hundreds of people, all with their own experiences, interests and expertise in amateur (and for many, professional) theatre. This also makes it a fantastic networking opportunity, and many students become friends and stay in touch for years to come. The week is intense, with the objective being for students to leave after the week having developed their confidence and skills as much as possible!
Our volunteers are already counting down to next year, who knows what they will be learning next!? KYDS would like to thank the NODA Summer School team for a fantastic opportunity and a wonderful week.
