Re:Act Summer Intensive 2012

Re:Act Summer Intensive kicked off this year on Tuesday 31st July. Our participants spent the week creating a unique production of the classic musical, ‘Bugsy Malone’, through a series of drama, dance and singing workshops. Time was dedicated to every aspect of the production – drama, dance, singing – each day, and by day two, the production was already taking shape. On day three the production was completed, meaning there was even time to spare before our dress rehearsal the following day.

I was amazed at the amount of drive and passion that each child poured into the production. They committed 100% to every element of ‘Bugsy Malone’, creating quirky dance routines, fantastic musical numbers and comical characters. This culminated in an incredible performance which included a mock food fight, making the final result a memorable occasion.

I was extremely proud of each one of our participants. They rose to the challenge of musical theatre and executed it brilliantly. It was an absolutely fantastic week and was thoroughly enjoyed by all the participants and tutors. One participant commented: “It was epic!”. We can’t wait for Re:Act Summer Intensive to return in 2013! Keep a look out for future Re:Act projects coming in the new term!
