Acting for Stage & Screen 7-10

Posted on: March 28th, 2024 by Joshua Robinson

Does your child want to explore the world of acting?

Introducing participants to essential stage and screen techniques, this course builds skills and confidence, honing teamwork, encouraging creativity and building a strong foundation of skills for young aspiring performers.

Participants work as a company, with a professional actor/director expertly leading them in drama games, rehearsal exercises and technique based sessions. The skills developed will be put into practice with the creation of a screen duologue and short piece of work for the stage.

No previous experience is necessary, just an interest in drama and acting and a willingness to get stuck in!

Those with more experience will be encouraged to develop their skills to a higher level in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Screen Acting: techniques and skills for performing on screen and and introduction to the technical aspects of film making.

Musical Theatre: students will work with a Musical Director and a Choreographer to learn a song-and-dance number from a popular West End musical.

Jukebox Musical (7-10 yrs)

Posted on: December 18th, 2023 by Neil Roig

If musicals make your child’s eyes light up then don’t miss this course!

Some of the most popular and well-loved musicals on at the West End are ‘jukebox’ musicals, featuring popular hits, think Mamma Mia (ABBA), 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton), We Will Rock You (Queen), and The Bodyguard (Whitney Houston).

On our Jukebox Musical course, participants work with a team of top industry professionals to create their very own piece of theatre, learning songs and dances from various genres to create something that is all their own.

Throughout the week, participants weave together some of their favourite songs, developing characters and a story to produce a truly original piece, created by the group, led by our expert and friendly tutors.

The course includes technique sessions in all three core skills; singing, dancing and acting, alongside the development and rehearsal of the show, which is shared with family and friends at the end of the week. A chance to show off new skills and debut a truly original show!

Participants develop their creative skills, in storytelling and group work as well as performance.  Along the way they will make new friends, share their passion for all things musical, and grow in confidence as they develop a brand new piece of theatre.

No previous experience is necessary, just a love of musicals and a willingness to give new things a try! Beginners will be supported every step of the way in a warm, collaborative and fun-filled environment, whilst more experienced performers will be encouraged to challenge themselves and improve their skills.
