Starting Out: For Ages 5 - 8

STARTING OUT is the perfect introduction to the world of acting and performing, and a great place to have fun and get creative! During these sessions filled with fun and exhilarating creative play our professional tutors lead participants on a journey of discovery covering the fundamentals of acting, storytelling and stagecraft as well as helping them develop the confidence, stamina and creative imagination every young actor needs.

Term 4 provides students time to develop and present a performance of their theatre skills to the public. Please see below for details on the 2020 Showcase.
