A group of students from West Oxfordshire Academy of Performing Arts' Saturday Theatre school for children are about to take part in an exciting workshop in Burford.
Local author, Jane-Anne Hodgson, was in the Primary Times Top Ten Christmas books list in 2012 and has recently been longlisted for the Rubery Book Award 2013 with her book "Grubson Pug's Christmas Voyage".
Jane-Anne invited the WOAPA students to attend the drama class in Burford which will explore the characters, themes and storyline from the book.
The children have been reading the book throughout the summer in preparation for the workshop and are eager to get together for the drama session.
A film company will be on hand to record the drama class with a view to using the footage to further promote the book through a promotional video.
The sequel, "Banzais Unexpected Voyage", is due to be published in October 2013.
