With many children loving to perform and wanting to give theatre a go, 2022’s summer ‘Show in a Week’ of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was an excellent example of how we can improve children’s concentration, boost their confidence, build their communication skills and provide them with a creative outlet for them to have fun and make new friends.

Since CYGNETS started in 2010, we have been running these regularly and we are so proud of what every child joining us has achieved and how they have developed.  

After starting back following lockdown on June 21, we staged our Summer School “Beauty and the Beast” – a huge success with most of the children attending joining us for our weekly sessions and main show.

We couldn’t be more proud of the wonderful young people and families who take part in CYGNETS’ activities, whether it be shows, concerts, summer schools, Sing in a Day events, or weekly classes.  We are so proud of their achievements, and love the friendships that have been forged amongst children and parents.

CYGNETS was delighted that to be able to present the summer school of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in our newly- refurbished performance space at Paradise Mill – a wonderful 590 sq metres of space to rehearse and perform in and hold other events.  Everyone loves it – cast, crew and parents.  Plus it is available for others to hire, including parties and regular activities.  

Following our Grand Opening on 9th July 2022, we were able to stage our first show – our Celebration Showcase in July 2022 – again a huge success.

For every summer school we present, we welcome young people of all abilities who will enjoy working with a very experienced production team, learning a variety of singing, acting and dancing skills, and having many opportunities to showcase their talents at the final performance.
