Our Mini Academy for Reception to Year 2 allows our young performers to start to explore their imaginations. Throughout the term we just explore their young minds and whisk them away to a range of magical places through singing, dancing and acting!
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 year on a professional stage!
This term our Monday and Thursday classes will kick off rehearsals for Shrek, whilst our Tuesday and Saturday groups will be working on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR!
Our next Junior Weekly Academy productions will take place in Summer 2023, with our Surbiton Tuesday and Saturday classes performing 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' in July and our Surbiton Thursday and Esher Mondays performing 'Shrek the Musical' in May!
You can join the casts by joining our Junior classes!
Previous productions include: Matilda the Musical JR, Oliver! JR, Aladdin JR and Bugsy Malone!
