      WHAT

      It’s the perfect place to make new friends, grow in confidence and have great fun producing performances for family and friends.

      Our seniors are a bit more experienced and therefore this older group provides the perfect landing spot for anyone looking to both advance their skills or try for the first time. We’re an ensemble so every young actor looks out for everyone else.

      WHO

      Lizzie has moved from Dorset recently where she headed up the drama for Stagecoach.

      She has a huge amount of experience working with young actors and loves seeing them develop as people and performers.

      FEES

      Single payment per term of £216 or 4 x payments of £54 / month. This covers 10 sessions per term.
