Our Senior Academy classes for ages 11-15 is our advanced drama class for all abilities, providing an in-depth, professional and imaginative set of classes exploring everything theatre has to offer.  Whether you're looking to go into the industry or just perform as a hobbie, this class is for you!

Tuesdays 6:30-8pm 

Throughout the term our Year 7 to Year 10's are taught the fundamental techniques of theatre in a fun and safe environment. We aim to create a space where each and every child feels like they can be themselves and grow in confidence!

The weekly workshops explore all elements of theatre, which will then be used in a performance either in the main performance space or on a professional stage. Throughout the term you will develop in confidence and technique as we explore a range of drama skills such as comedy, script work, improvisation and musical theatre.

In previous terms we have performed and explored shows such as Bryony Lavery's 'It Snows' and 'Blood Brothers' and explored the likes of Physical Theatre, improvisation, devising, and script-work

Every term ends with a performance for friends and family, including a full scale production each year on a professional stage!

This term we are in rehearsals for our Christmas production of Sister Act Jr!

My daughter really enjoys South Side Theatre Academy. It is such a friendly and inclusive place. They bring out her creativity in a fun way and it also helps with her confidence.
