Founded in 2000, On With The Show is a theatrical and performing arts project based in Watford that enables children of all abilities to take part in every aspect of putting on a show including:
DESIGN: Set and costumes
TECHNICAL: Lighting and sound
DIRECTING: Script and choreography
PERFORMANCE: Singing, dancing and acting
And all other aspects of staging a show (including running the tuck shop!)
The main difference between On With The Show and other local groups, is that our aim is to develop confidence through building skills. "Talent" or experience are definitely not a prerequisite. Children are involved in all aspects of putting on a show, teaching them the importance of team building, drawing on their imagination, using their initiative and being encouraged to just dare to have a go.
Last year we took you all on a once in a lifetime world cruise so... you packed your suitcase, found your old phrase books and climbed aboard that luxurious (really?) old liner The Owty Daze. She set sail on August 5th from the World Famous St Thomas’ Port and took her passengers on a whistle stop cruise, sailing back into St Thomas’ on Friday 16th August.
Our 11th annual summer project was:
Run by local people, many of whom work in nearby schools
Based at St Thomas' Centre, Langley Road, Watford WD17 3PN
