What we'll do
We know how much kids (and people generally) love The Jungle Book. So this summer, Lilley Lovett brings you The Jungle Book Summer School Workshop. Your child will learn songs, dances and scenes from the show, originally staged at Lilley Lovett 5 years ago. Your child will work with our fun-loving team and experienced theatre professional, 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 start the afternoon with lots more fun activities, and finish the day with some final games. We know that we get the best out of our young performers when they trust one another, and so getting them to work as a team is really important. We pride ourselves on getting our kids and young people to not be afraid to try anything, and to know that it’s OK to make mistakes. This is a central ethos, and helps the group build trust, confidence and friendships fast. Claude loves teaching children and young people to be creative. She is First Aid trained, has an enhanced DBS check in place, and will make sure that attendees are supervised at all times. Lilley Lovett Theatre Group is a place for children to have fun, develop their performance skills and nurture a life-long love of musical theatre. We see their confidence grow as they learn during the week - it's a joy to witness! As musical theatre is a combination of singing, movement and acting, we teach all these disciplines in unison, just as they would be seen in any production. It’s truly inspiring when they are intertwined!
About your mentors
Claude Lovett
Sings, dances and acts (the clown) with kids!
I was a kid who sang before I talked, and I've not stopped since! This was followed by dance lessons from 4 years and 2 stints in the West End in Bugsy Malone and Annie, both incredible experiences that will stay with me forever, and which helped begin my love of acting. I went on in more recent years to go to Boot Camp on X Factor in 2007 and appeared on Stars In Their Eyes as Diana Ross in 2017. Then I was lucky enough to be asked to be the musical director of The Lion King at Laughton School and after many requests from the parents of the children that appeared in the show, Lilley Lovett Theatre Group was born. For me there is no greater joy than watching children's confidence grow as they get immersed in the performing arts. We're passionate about teaching children not to be afraid to make mistakes, to work as a team and respect each other. The results are awe inspiring, and now I finally have my dream job.
