workshops which cover acting skills;  improvisation, mime, voice work, movement,
and an end production. The workshops also cover communication and concentration
and social skills.  Our ethos is having fun while learning about the theeatre.

We have our own Tv/Radio/Film Agency.   On occasion producers request
actors for Tv, Radio, and Film work.   If we think a child is suitable for the
part, , we will put their name forward with parent’s permission to go for an
audition.    The parent will act as Chaperone.
