Continuing development of performance skills such as voice, movement, characterisation, improvisation, ensemble and devising. The classes are as much about the process as they are about the final showcase and performance. This course is ideal for those who are serious about performance and wish to progress further.
I’ve never taken acting classes before. Can I still join senior youth theatre? Yes! Beginners are very welcome.
I’m 12 but already in secondary school. Which class do I join? We recommend trying out for senior youth theatre.
I left it too late to register and now have missed out on the auditions. Does that mean I have to wait until Sept 2022? Join our waiting list – we are keeping classes smaller than usual while Covid rates remain high but we do intend to increase numbers when it’s safe to do so. And spaces often open up later on as students take time off to concentrate on exams.
