Summer School: Holloway Jones


Join the Nottingham Playhouse Youth Theatre this summer to create a performance of Holloway Jones. For two weeks you will be working with Nottingham Playhouse professionals to bring this exciting and relevant story to life. At the end of the two weeks of rehearsal, we will be presenting a public performance of our piece in the Neville Studio.

Holloway Jones has always dreamt of becoming an Olympic BMX champion. But first she must break the cycle of crime and prison that is expected of her and quickly discovers there are some challenging potholes between her and her life’s ambition.

This exciting coming of age story takes us on a ride with Holloway that leads her through feelings of ambition, loss and love.

Monday 31 July – Saturday 12 August 2017 (excludes Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August)
Ages: 14 – 19
Price: £150

Casting Videos

In order for us to get going straight away in rehearsals, you will be required to send a video of you reading 2 extracts from the play. Four options will be supplied once you have booked your place. This will be a good chance for us to see who we will be working with and allocate parts.

Once you have booked your place, please email your casting video to participation@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk by the deadline of Friday 14 July.

All participants are guaranteed a part and each role will be allocated after the casting videos have been received. Specific roles cannot be guaranteed.
