Drama for the Likes of Us at The Grove

THERE are some exciting events taking place at The Grove Theatre for children this summer.

A week-long musical theatre dance workshop runs from July 25 to 29 where youngsters will have a chance to learn something new and meet new people. There will also be a chance to input your own ideas and moves as you build a repertoire to perform. Open to people age eight and over.

In August, the fifth Grove Summer Musical Project will be taking place. Following on from the success of last year’s production of Guys and Dolls, The Grove is presenting Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s fantastic musical The Likes of Us from August 11-13.

The Likes of Us is the first musical that the pair wrote together and was originally intended to be performed as a school production but it won critical acclaim and was later expanded into a full-scale musical.

It tells the story of Victorian Philanthropist Dr Barnardo who established children’s homes for orphans and tells of his journey and crusade to rescue children living on the streets, a story that has become renowned around the world.
