What we'll do

We know how much kids (and people generally) love The Lion King. So this summer, Lilley Lovett brings you The Lion King Summer School Workshop. Your child will learn songs, dances and scenes from the show, originally staged at Laughton School 6 years ago. Those attending the workshop for the full week will have the chance to perform some of their work to parents and friends on Friday 29th July. Whether your child comes for a whole week, or for a day or two, they will work with our fun-loving team and experienced theatre professionals, Ruth Lilley and Claude Lovett, developing their creativity and learning new skills in Drama, Dance, Musical Theatre and Stage Craft. But the major focus will be on fun and confidence building. Typically a day will begin with drama warm up games, designed to break the ice and to help everyone get to know each other. We’ll then work in groups to learn songs, work on choreography, and direct and act in scenes from the show.  We’ll stop for lunch, then ...

Claude Lovett·Sings, dances and acts (the clown) with kids!
The Lilley Lovett Theatre Group is run by Ruth Lilley and Claude Lovett who have both worked in professional theatre for a number of years.  In fact, Claude was performing in London's West End when she was just 12 years old. Between us we have experience in producing, performing, directing, musical directing, singing, dancing, and choreography. Our passion for creating the Lilley Lovett Theatre Group was inspired by volunteering our skills and experience to put on a small rural primary school production of 'The Lion King Kids'.  We loved watching the children's confidence grow as they experienced the thrill of live performance and realised they had created something to be very proud of.  They took away with them the memories of being part of something very special - and an experience which they will talk about for years to come!  Watched by over 350 people, the children received standing ovations after every performance.  Oh, and we raised over £2,000 for the school in the process. We began Lilley Lovett Theatre Group in 2016 and have been growing ever since. We also received an award from Wealden Council in 2021 for the work we did with children during the pandemic, ensuring that they had online sessions to attend free of charge.
