Programme Note

Snappy Opera workshop for children (aged 7-11), Witch Song by Emily Hall 11:00-15:00, Laughton Village Hall. Performance, open to all, at 17:00.

A Snappy Opera is a ten minute mini-opera written for and with young people designed to be prepared and performed in a day. This autumn Mahogany Opera Group launches its nationwide project to create ten Snappy Operas with ten composers, writers and groups of children across the country. The first of these is being developed by composer Emily Hall and writer Toby Litt, and we are offering young people the chance join in a workshop of the opera with Mahogany’s artists. The children will learn the music, work on singing and performance technique, plot the moves, work on staging, and finally produce a short performance, which is open to all.

This team of skilled professionals will be inspirational, and it will also be great fun! If you would like your child to be a participant please download an application form from our website No cost for the children, but donations are very welcome!

The event is supported by the Chalvington Trust and Wealden District Council.
