Vision Arts’ Summer Youth Project promises outstanding performing arts education and experiences for children and teens in Pembrokeshire.

This summer the project includes the Minis Project for younger children and the Youth Project musical production for older students.

The Minis Project, sponsored by the generous support of Valero, is a free one-week workshop from Monday, July 29 to Friday, August 2. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will participate in singing, dancing, and acting workshops, culminating in a ‘mini performance’ at the end of the week.

Following the Minis Project, Vision Arts presents the full-scale Youth Project with the madness musical ‘Our House’ from August 5 to 15. Students in Years 3-13 will rehearse and stage this exciting musical production over a two-week period. The cost for participants is only £50 for the entire fortnight.

Creative Director Drew Baker said: “These Summer Youth Projects provide vital opportunities for young people to explore their creativity and passion for the arts. The skills they develop in teamwork, confidence, and self-expression are invaluable.

“We believe the performing arts enrich lives and bring communities together. Once again, a huge thank you to Valero for allowing us to make the minis project free of change and another big thank you to Vision Theatre Company for fundraising and donating so we can continue to make such projects accessible to everyone.”

Performances of "Our House" will take place on August 16 and 17 at the Boulevard Theatre in Milford Haven. This year, Vision Arts is encouraging students interested in technical theatre and backstage work to get involved as well.
