Each season consists of three terms. The first term starts in January (10 workshops), the second in April (10 workshops) and the third in April (12 workshops, including a performance at a professional theatre). Please see below for an overview of the content for each term.

Term 1 – January to March
Students will learn to develop their voice and physicality as actors using a wide variety of theatre techniques and exercises appropriate for their age group. These methods include Suzuki, Grotowski and other well-established methods to help students confidently take the stage. Students will demonstrate what they have learnt at an end-of-term open session for family members and friends.

Term 2 – April to June
Students will learn useful ways to interpret a script as a performer. Working individually and in small groups, they will be exploring monologues, duologues and choral speaking. We will also do more ensemble related work that will help develop their movement work for larger scale scenes. Students will demonstrate what they have learnt at an end-of-term open session for family members and friends.

Term 3 September to November
Students in this term will work on a production to be performed at a professional theatre with costume, make up, stage lights and more! This term brings together all the different elements that the students have learnt in the previous 2 terms so as to stage a performance.
