Towngate Summer School

Towngate Theatre is proud to present

Our Day Out

Written by Willy Russell with Bob Eaton. This Amateur Production of Our Day Out (Revised Musical Version) is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

‘Sir, Sir, are we nearly there yet?’ –
The answer is ‘Yes’!

It’s nearly time for a second instalment of Towngate Theatre’s Summer School Project! This year we are also offering a limited number of technical theatre spaces for Our Day Out. If you have an interest in Stage Management, Lighting Design or Sound Design, this is the role for you. Learn with industry professionals and see what it takes to put the show together from start to finish!

If you are aged 10 or above and have a passion for performing or technical theatre, then this three week intensive youth project is where the fun begins! Learning from industry professionals in the world of theatre, you will experience what it takes to be part of a high quality production, whilst having tremendous fun and making new friends!

This year, once again, we not only have a professional team of Creatives working with you, but also five professional actors playing the teachers in the show!

We want to make our Summer School experience open to everyone – so no audition or performance experience is required to be part of this extra special journey. Once your place is secured you automatically become a member of the Our Day Out Company! However, if you would like to be considered for a principal role, auditions are likely to take place on the first day of Summer School on Saturday 4th August. These will take place throughout the day and will be very relaxed, so no need for any nerves!

Here’s to three weeks of working hard and having fun here at the Towngate Theatre’s Our Day Out Summer School…the journey begins here!
