The Kings Theatre welcomed children from Portsmouth to learn more about a life on stage with its summer school sessions.

With two classes hosted by industry professionals, the youngsters were given the opportunity to take centre stage at the venue.

They came together to create a song and dance performance titled All the Kings a Stage, which was overseen by the theatre’s pantomime producer Simon Barry.

And they had the chance to run through rehearsals of the children’s musical Oink, hosted by Lou Bundy.

The summer school sessions were run in partnership with the charity Barnardo’s.

The idea behind the sessions was to give children something productive to do during the summer holidays and help them develop new skills, learning about an industry they may otherwise not know about.

The theatre’s next class will start on Tuesday.
