A week of free musical entertainment for young children

VISION Arts, Pembrokeshire’s new performing arts center based in Haverfordwest, has partnered with Valero to provide children in school years one and two of reception, a full week of coaching and training based on the musical theater – culminating in a performance during the summer school vacation.

Young participants will be able to channel their inner Mowgli or Colonel Harty, working on a production of Jungle Book Jr.

Children will be led and supported by industry-standard professional arts practitioners who will guide them in acting, singing and dancing; practicing their new skills during a public performance of the show… and thanks to the generous sponsorship of Valero, there will be no cost to participate.

Says Drew Baker, creative director of Vision Arts:

“The philosophy of Vision Arts is to make the arts accessible to everyone – and thanks to Valero’s sponsorship of our Minis Summer Youth Project – funding will not be a barrier to attending this great spectacle. We know that all children will have an amazing time – and learn a lot while having fun.

Valero spokesman Stephen Thornton added:

“We are delighted to sponsor this excellent program which will allow children to gain confidence and enjoy the creative arts. It’s great that a service like Vision Arts is providing these opportunities and we hope the kids will continue to be very successful this summer and beyond.

The Minis Summer Youth Project will take place August 22-26. You can register your child at www.visionartswales.com
