Our Youth Academy is for 7 to 17 year olds who are interested in developing their skills in acting, singing, dancing, and performance whilst having fun and socialising with like minded youngsters in a safe and well supervised environment. Our rehearsals are always supervised and run by suitably CRB checked individuals, so you can be assured your children are in safe hands.

We started the Youth Academy as we recognised that with an expanding junior membership, there was a need for us to perform youth only productions to provide our younger members with adequate opportunities throughout the year. Whilst we are able to offer opportunities for members of all ages to shine equally in musical revues and concerts, there are few major musicals that would enable us to offer roles for both the younger members and adults at the same time. This would therefore not only limit the musicals we could choose from but would also limit the chance for our members to develop their talents and skills by taking on lead roles. We therefore aim for the Youth Academy to perform at least one production of their own per year, as well as taking part in other productions with the Theatrical Society adults.

Since the Youth Academy began in 2010 they have performed Disney's Aladdin Junior, Disney’s High School Musical Junior, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Junior on their own and have taken part in Once Upon A Time, The Treasures of Broadway, The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz as joint ventures with our adult company.

If you enjoy singing, dancing and/or acting and are interested in joining our youth academy then please contact us we would love to hear from you.
