Our Junior Academy for years 3-6 allows our young members to flourish, focussing on developing a range of skills in the theatre from musical theatre to comedy to improvisation, through the likes of drama games, script work and exercises.

Mondays 5-6:30pm, Tuesdays 4:30-6pm & Saturdays 10-11:30am

We use the enjoyment of the class to bring out the best in each child, giving them a voice and allowing them to explore who they are.

Throughout the term we will work closely with the children to develop their ideas and put them into action, leading to an end of term performance in some shape or form. Some terms each week, instead of workshops they will be rehearsals, leading up to a performance on a professional stage in front of an audience.

In previous terms we have performed shows such as 'Oliver',  'Aladdin' and 'Bugsy Malone' and explored the likes of Roald Dahl, improvisation, slapstick comedy, singing and dance technique. 

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

This term we are starting Matilda JR rehearsals in Surbiton and exploring the Marvelous World of Roald Dahl in Esher!

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.
