This year's Surrey Summer Camp show title is:

The Never Ending Story:

A classic fantasy story, in a rich imaginative world, including friendly, flying dragons. Youthful imagination overrides cynicism. A world where a teenage girl is an Empress and a teenage boy the hero.

Shy teenaged Bastian is fleeing bullies when he decides to take shelter in a book shop. He stumbles upon a book and begins to read a myth about a magical world called Fantasia. Ruled by a 16 year old Empress, the world of Fantasia is slowly being devoured by a malevolent force called "The Nothing". Bastian is pulled into the story and finds himself responsible for saving the life of the Empress and Fantasia.

We will bring the story to life devising original scenes and dialogue, songs and choreography as a full musical production.


Summer Camps are fun-filled 6-day summer activity holidays providing intense, creative training for anyone aged 11-17 looking to explore their potential and develop their acting, singing and dancing abilities. You'll work with top theatre professionals and create a brand new show in just a week on these exciting residential projects. You'll also receive a masterclass in audition technique (ready for the 2018 YMT auditions) and some specialist training in both voice and singing. Summer Camps do not require an audition - so get booking as it's first come, first served!
