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 Senior Academy classes for years 7-10 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!
Throughout the term our Seniors 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!
Our 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 comedy, physical theatre, musical theatre, improvisation 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 rehearsing for Shrek the Musical in Esher and rehearsing for our 5-Year Gala in Surbiton!
Our next Esher Senior Weekly Academy production is 'Shrek the Musical JR' with rehearsals starting from January 2023, to be performed in May at Esher Theatre. You can join the cast by joining our Esher Senior Academy!
