What’s it about?

c21 Theatre Company makes a return to Ballymena this Summer with their successful drama Summer camps for children aged 7-13.  This will be the company’s fifth year at The Braid Arts Centre and it promises to be the best yet.  Creative Director Stephen Kelly gives an insight to the programmes that will run.


“A week long performance summer camp, we are offering something really special this year with our ‘Play in a Week’ season.  We will pull out all stops to produce a well-known musical that will include dancing, acting and singing all wrapped up in a fun packed week.  Every day our participants will take part in a variety of activities, led by professionals, aimed at improving their skills. So if you are a Frozen fan or like Bruno Mars then this could be for you”.


As professional directors and choreographers, the company members have years of experience in the theatre, TV and film industry and are well known for their very popular Pantomimes in The Braid Theatre each Christmas. You don’t need to have any experience at all to be part of the camps but if you do, come along and let the company build on your experience. We don’t expect perfection; we only expect that you have a fun time! c21 drama camps celebrates diversity and accepts children of all abilities and experience.
