With show on Wednesday 12th April at 7.30pm

The King’s School, Fence Avenue, Macclesfield, SK10 1LS

CYGNETS is delighted to announce that, following the success of its previous courses Matilda, Oliver and Annie, the next course being held will be an exciting three-day musical theatre course working on extracts from GREASE and THE LION KING.  

All taking part will experience an exciting singing, dancing and acting course and will be learning many new skills as they learn the songs, create exciting dance routines and explore the characters and dialogue.  A key feature of all course that CYGNETS runs is that we make sure that everyone taking part is equally involved, irrespective of age and ability, by rotating the main parts. The three days then culminates in a show on the final evening – 12th April at 7.30pm – which showcases the talents of all participants;

As before, the course will be run by very skilled and experienced production team of Director Kalini Kent, Musical Director Mike Richardson, and Choreographer Hannah Davies – all with many years’ experience in their fields. 

CYGNETS courses are always very successful with everyone learning a lot, having fun, making new friends and a strong camaraderie forming during the course of the week.   Feedback from all our courses has been very favourable for all those taking part and the audience.

Age range of participants is 7 to 18 years (other ages by request), and all abilities are welcome.

Before the course starts, all attending will find it very useful to have listened to the relevant songs from Grease and The Lion King and become familiar with the storyline.  Some of the Songs are:
