Youngsters with a passion for performance will be able to attend a range of activities at the Parabola Arts Centre this half term.

The home of contemporary arts in Cheltenham is hosting a run of five events for people aged 6-18.

Musical mayhem, pirate role-play and secret agent stories feature for the younger children, while teenagers are invited to two days of singing, dance and drama.

The week starts on February 11, with PAC Secret Agents.

Children aged 9-12 will learn to become super sleuths as they act out a secret mission to solve a complex riddle.

A day of movement and music for six to 12-year-olds follows on February 12, when Clash! comes to town.

Creating funky rhythms with items from basketballs to brooms and junk will help the children to explore percussion, movement and physical comedy.

PAC Quest, on February 13, will take youngsters aged six to eight on a journey through swamps and forests, and across the high seas.

Pirates, mermaids and explorers will ensure this is a day of fun.

The Musical Mash Up for 13-18-year-olds promises two days of singing, dance and drama on February 14 and 15.

The teens will work on extracts and songs from the musicals, using improvisation and physical theatre to explore characters and create scenes, before a final performance.

Theatre Manager Christina Poulton said: "We're delighted to have a full programme of exciting events this half term and look forward to welcoming lots of creative young people.

"You don't need to have any experience of drama, performance or the arts, just some imagination and a willingness to get involved."
