Music City is coming to The Playhouse Children and Teens Arts Festival!
Monday 21 July- Friday 1 August 2014.
This summer The Playhouse Children and Teens Arts Festival will be celebrating Music City with Music photography, video animation and DIY instruments!
While Derry ~Londonderry celebrates its unique musical heritage and 2013 legacy with its designation as City of Music 2014, The Playhouse kids are making their own musical mark!
Music Photographers with independent record label Smalltown America, artists and curators from local Art Galleries, and the founder of a new musical theatre company are among the facilitators announced for the two week festival.
The fully qualified artists and facilitators will provide a wide and colourful variety of workshops for ages of 4 - 16 that are sure to impress and amaze, while educating the young people about the music behind the city.
Workshops in musical theatre, animation, dance and visual arts are all on the musical menu, as well as a special class in producing and curating your own artwork.
Sponsored by Partridge Peartree, facilitators for the festival include Bernie Doherty of Boogie Bugs, Kirsten McLaughlin of KidArt, music photographer Lisa Byrne of Wrapped in Plastic Photography, and Ryan Quinn of new musical theatre company Black Air Theatre Company.
Now into its 22nd year, the festival is the longest running in Northern Ireland, and will run from Monday July 21- Friday August 1.
"The festival will be divided into three age categories; from 4-6 year olds, 7-12 years old and our teens - ranging from 13-16. This means that every group will get the very best and most out of their experience and ensures a safe and friendly environment during their summer visit!" festival co-ordinator Jessica Caldwell said.
"Unfortunately, there are only a limited number of spaces and demand is very high, so to make sure you book quickly to avoid disappointment!"
The Playhouse Children and Teens Arts Festival will run from Monday July 21- Friday August 1. To book or for further Information contact The Playhouse Box Office on (028) 71268027.
