JUNIOR

Learn how to have fun and express yourself on-stage

For ages 6 – 12

Have fun with new friends and learn the foundations of stagecraft with great tutors.

Junior theatre is a great way for kids to learn key stage craft skills, grow in confidence and enjoy socialising with their peers. 

Our classes are a place where they will flourish, explore their unique ideas and develop them through acting, mime, story telling, improvisation and more.

Because they meet like-minded kids they become confident and learn to fit with the group dynamic. Our tutors work with them to celebrate every milestone on their drama journey.

Our students perform in their own junior theatre productions throughout the year and also have the opportunity to join the cast of our musical and repertory shows.

OUR PROGRAMS

Acting Antics

Acting Antics is a structured program that takes place over the course of the school holidays.

A group of children and work through the holiday to practice and then perform a play for their friends and family.

sing your heart out - dance your socks off

We have bootcamps every school holiday that run outside of Acting Antics. 

These are a great chance for your kids to spend a dedicated chunk of time working with their peers to develop their stage skills. 

Get in touch with us to register your interest for the next bootcamp as places fill up quickly.

Main Productions

From time to time the cast for our major productions will require children. Some examples of previous shows are Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat, Heidi and The Sound of Music. 

When this happens there is the opportunity for our Junior theatre attendees to audition and take part in a larger production alongside our adult company. 

This is a great way for them to experience what it’s like to be part of a larger cast and production.

The Shicka Chickas

The Shicka Chickas - a tone in cheek vocal band are thrilled to announce a tour of "The Attenborough Season."
You got it! Songs about animals!
🦞🦭🐕🐑🕊️🐯🦓🦎🐎🐊🐺🐈🐒🦅🐸🦖
The varied repertoire and arrangements ensure something for everyone.
Yep - from our grungy version of Led Zep's Black Dog, to a lovely choral arrangement of The Beatles' Blackbird - we'll help you truly appreciate what vocals can do.
Our last little theatre tour was popular as heck with the people that came along - and that wasn't even about animals. It was about destinations... yawny yawn... I'm not serious - they were fabulous gigs!
We love utilising these theatre spaces - they're versatile - well maintained, loved and super good sonically. And that means you get to hear the subtleties of the arrangements. We might even tell you some secrets!

Came and see us? We love it when you do!
