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!
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.
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 are in rehearsals for Beauty and the Beast JR, whilst our Tuesday and Saturday groups will be in workshop term exploring comedy, ahead of their show next Summer, Madagascar JR!
Our next Junior Weekly Academy productions are Beauty and the Beast JR in February 2024, performed by our Monday and Thursday classes and Madagascar: a Musical Adventure JR performed by our Saturday and Tuesday classes in July 2024!
From the very first workshop auditions, throughout the rehearsal process and into production week our young performers will work with our professional production team, who create a safe and fun rehearsal environment allowing them to thrive on stage.
Whatever your your past experience, there is a place for you in our shows, with every production ensuring every student has their moment to shine, giving everyone a space to grow and develop with their talents.
