What’s in it for you?
Do you have a leading lady who has always shown a flair for direction? A dance captain who would make a great choreographer? A stage manager who wants to light your next show but doesn’t know where to start? Or do you need someone passionate about musicals who needs their directing skills honed? What about that shy retiring chorus member with the fabulous voice who lacks the confidence to take a lead role? Maybe a singing course is what they need, or to discover their hidden acting depths.
If you’re thinking of that person, then the NODA Residential Summer School can help you!
Over the years that Summer School has taken place, we have heard success story after success story about society members who have returned from a Summer School week with new found skills and enthusiasm and taken on roles within the society that they never thought themselves to be capable of?
Calum Campbell from LAMP in Linlithgow, a small town in Scotland, is just such a student:
“After being approached to direct Linlithgow Amateur Musical Production’s youth show, I was very apprehensive about accepting. My society wanted to bring through a younger member of the adult company to become stronger in their chosen field and were taking a big risk on me.
“I was promised that on the strength of the training I would receive at Summer School, that I would gain a huge understanding of directing youth theatre and what was involved. The week was a huge learning curve for me and was everything I thought it would be. Wiithout it, I would never have had the confidence to direct”.
Has your society ever considered supporting one of your members, young or old (between 18 and 80), to attend Summer School? Perhaps they need a bit of help with travel expenses, or a contribution towards the fee? It’s an investment in the personal development of your society members that will pay you back in ways you have never imagined?
Why don’t you take a leaf out of Dinnington Operatic’s book. They have sent a different student to Summer school every single year who has since returned to direct, offer technical support and take their society forward with skill and confidence.
