You'll work with top theatre professionals and create a brand new show in just a week on these exciting residential projects. Summer Camps do not require an audition - so get booking as it's first come, first served!

The Golden Compass

The Golden Compass is a fantasy adventure inspired by Northern Lights, a novel by Philip Pullman & it's film version, written and directed by Chris Weitz.  

Lyra Belacqua lives in a parallel world in which human souls take the form of lifelong animal companions or familiars, called daemons. Dark forces are at large in her world, and many children have been kidnapped by 'Gobblers'. Lyra vows to save her best friend, Roger, after he goes missing. She sets out with her daemon, a tribe of seafarers, a witch, an ice bear and a Texas airman on an epic quest to rescue Roger and save her world.

As a devising process performers will be central in developing the story and characters, writing lyrics and contributing ideas through out.
