They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for family and friends to enjoy. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.

Students can let their imagination run wild as they not only create their version of James and the Giant Peach through ensemble work. How will be build a giant peach, who will they find living inside and will the escape the clutches of the wicked Aunts Spiker and Sponge? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved; who knows what strange and wonderful dreams and characters that can be created and what worlds their audiences will be transported to.
