We want every child to experience the thrill and joy of performing on stage whilst learning techniques that will help them progress forward into the next stage of their theatre education. Our Junior Acting Classes and Musical Theatre Workshops provide the perfect opportunity to give every child an individual experience of devising, improvisation, rehearsing and performing.
