Wise Children’s Summer Camp
in association with The North Wall 

10am - 6pm*, Monday 25th - Friday 29th July

Venue: The North Wall, Oxford 

Cost: Free!

Assistance with accommodation, travel and subsistence is available

Perfectly observed performance, soul melting music and flawless ensemble work are the hallmarks of a Wise Children show. We’re looking for brilliant performers interested in finding out how we do it!  


Led by award-winning director Emma Rice and a team of her closest collaborators, the Summer Camp is a week-long performing course which will include acting, singing, dancing, puppetry, and more, as you learn to create playful, ensemble, music-filled theatre in the style of Wise Children.   

Who we’re looking for: We want to hear from performers, aged 18+, serious about working in the industry. No professional training is needed, but all participants will need to be able to perform, sing and move confidently - so we’re expecting most applicants will have at least some previous performing experience.  

We are committed to equal opportunities and actively encourage applications from those currently under-represented in the industry. To ensure our training is as accessible as possible, support with travel, accommodation and subsistence is available. 

If you have any questions about the course please contact

* Exact working hours TBC
