Q. HOW MUCH IS IT TO JOIN?
A. We are pleased to offer a free taster session to all new prospective students. If your child likes it, and they nearly always do, it’s simple to join. We charge a very competitive price of £10.50 per student per weekly session (2hrs). Payment is made half termly. We understand that having more than one child can be an expensive business so our youth theatre siblings receive a 10% discount on the joint weekly class fee.
Q. ANYTHING ELSE?
A. For our summer production, we charge a one off show fee of £15. This also helps towards costs for licensing, set, lighting, special FX, costumes, P.R.S/Royalties/Insurances etc.
This £15 fee is per family, not per student, and is due in the Summer Term.
When you come along for a taster session we have a ‘welcome pack’ which goes into finer detail so you know exactly what is involved including what happens in the unfortunate instance that you have to leave, although we hope this never happens! If you have any further questions regarding the fees please don’t hesitate to contact Laura who will be happy to chat things through.
Q. WHAT DO WE WEAR TO SESSIONS?
A. The most important thing is to be comfortable so we suggest loose clothing which is easy to move in. Because our sessions include energetic games, dance, stage combat and other physical activities, we require every student to wear sensible shoes. We have a blanket ban on flip flops! In addition, every student is required to purchase a T-Shirt. These are £10.00 each and display our printed logo with your child’s name printed on the reverse. Hoodies are also available at £16.00. These are not compulsory but are very popular. Aside from comfortable clothes and a fab t-shirt, bring along a drink and a snack as we do have a brief break half way through the session.
Q. DO YOU RUN IN THE HOLIDAYS?
A. Our weekly sessions run termly so we break up like the schools for Easter, Christmas and the Summer but we do regularly run specialist workshops so there is always something going on!
Q. WHAT AGES CAN JOIN?
A. We take students from as young as 6 and up to 18 years.
Q. I’VE NEVER ACTED BEFORE. DOES THAT MATTER?
A. No! We take students with all levels of skill and ability. For this reason, we don’t believe in holding auditions. Our taster session is a chance for you to meet the gang and see what we’re all about!
