LAMDA / Audition Preparation sessions are 30 minutes by appointment.
From their first lesson, pupils are emerged in a theatrical and fun environment, in a performance space where acting games and role playing are used as a vehicle for building focus, concentration and cooperation. As they progress, pupils are encouraged to think creatively, stimulating self expression and individuality. This allows them to move forward in creating and developing characters and so gain confidence as they perform in front of their peers.
Experience gained in this way allows them to become increasingly competent in devising contemporary improvised theatre as well as dealing with more classical themes.
The tools which pupils thus take on board allows them then to advance to more complicated script work with the final objective being the mounting of full length plays and musicals.
Regular performances on our own well equipped stage consolidates their technical stagecraft whilst allowing them to experience the full rehearsal cycle, in which they work as an ensemble and develop both their voice projection and diction. These stage productions encourage memory, commitment, reliability and cooperation with others in order to deliver high quality performances with high quality performers.
Plays – Arson About, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Diary of Anne Frank, Hard to Swallow, Romeo and Juliet, The Demon Headmaster. Musicals – Annie, Mack and Mabel, Calamity Jane, Bugsy Malone, Oliver!
