Young Company 1 For ages 12-15 years Classes every Tuesdays 9 January - 26 March (excluding Tues 13 February) 5:30pm - 7:30pm
The classes are small and are run by 2 professional experienced theatre practitioners/directors. The idea of the classes is to encourage creativity in each individual and to explore imagination and storytelling, at the same time learning about theatricality and stage craft in an easy, age-appropriate way. There are no auditions, and everyone is welcome.
The group play lots of exciting drama games which all are designed to do something different e.g. encourage sociability, working together, building confidence etc and quickly we find they all have their favourites which they return to and evolve themselves!
The theme and style of each term varies and can include script work, improvisation, devising, writing, and performing sketches amongst others and the main aim of each session is to instruct in a fun and an engaging way so every single young person is actively involved.
We work towards 2 main performances a year, the first is a Christmas cabaret, where parents, friends and carers are invited, and there is a second performance in July where the young people have an opportunity to show all the skills they have learnt in a larger end of year show; utilising our bespoke props
In 2023 Young Company 1 devised their own play 'Behind Closed Curtains' and performed on our main stage!” £154 (11 week term) £77 (per half term) £132 (11 week term) £66 (per half term) Concessions/Sibling Discount Pay fees online or if paying for a concessionary or sibling place please call the Box Office on 0343 310 0020, between 11am – 5pm Monday - Saturday, or email [email protected] Please contact Creative Learning at [email protected] to confirm your place and for more information.
