Show Stoppers - CONGRATULATIONS!

July 2017

 

CONGRATULATIONS to everybody who took part in our variety performance, ‘Show Stoppers!’ at Arts4Every1 in High Wycombe on July 16th. We're so proud of all of you and thank you so much for your hard work & dedication! Have a fabulous summer and we look forward to seeing you all in September!

Les Miserables - WEST END 

May 2017

This year, Principal Emma will be joining the West End cast of ‘Les Miserables’. Her performances begin in June and if there is enough interest we would love to organise a group trip to watch the show!

NEW Senior Musical Theatre Class 

April 2017

From September 2017 we are pleased to announce a new ‘Senior’ extension to the existing Intermediate class. The idea behind this is to allow our current older students the opportunity to work on more mature, soloistic & emotionally involved material while also continuing the gradual expansion of the academy.

The plan is that the Intermediate class will run as normal (11:30-12:30), with students who are in school year nine and above then staying on for an extra thirty minute intense session, finishing at 13:00. Eventually this class will break away from the intermediate group, becoming a fully fledged ‘Senior’ class, taking students up to the age of eighteen but we feel that it is best to progress gradually at present.

The extra cost for this class will be £15.00 per term, taking the total for affected students to £90.00 per term. If you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to get in touch by phone or email, or by all means have a chat with Dave or me one Sunday morning.

We will be asking for a costume contribution of £5.00 per child after half term. The children will be provided with a new ‘show t-shirt’ to keep as well as additional props/costume hints etc. They will then need their own black leggings/tracksuit bottoms and black trainers/plimsoles as normal.

Tickets are on sale every Sunday, priced at £8.00 for adults and £5.00 for children & OAPs. We hope you are all looking forward to the production as much as we are.
