Summer School

Don’t Dream it. Do it.

Hello and welcome to Jesters Theatre Academy Summer School.  Our Summer School runs every August in Chelmsford and Colchester.

Each day is different and caters for different age groups. We have a wide range of workshops based on Musical Theatre and TV, Books and Films.  These are very popular and there are limited places so booking in advance is highly recommended.

Jesters Theatre Academy is run by Jo Lee, a West End singer and actress who has had leading roles in shows including Les Miserables, Grease and The Rocky Horror Show; and Annie Vasconcelos who has appeared as a dancer at the London Palladium and Saddlers Wells as well as having her own choreography performed at the Royal Albert Hall.

All teachers and guest workshop leaders are experienced teachers who are professional choreographers, directors or performers.

We also run classes and groups for ALL ages within the community. We perform shows and are often asked to perform at public events. Jesters students also have the opportunity to work towards examinations in Drama, Musical Theatre and Dance.  The examinations are in association with the IDTA and are great fun to do and gives the student a chance to extend their skill set and add certificates to their portfolio.

Everyone is welcome at Jesters. Whether you come for the fun and love of performing or whether you come with dreams of having a performing career. Jesters is about nurturing your talent and making sure you have fun by taking part in creative drama, funky and fun choreography, and vocal training in musical theatre and pop styles; all whilst making new friends in a relaxed environment.

Hope to see you soon.
