About the event

These weekly performance classes are not only taught by West End/Industry professionals, but are designed to champion and develop young performers.

We will be working towards an end of term showcase for families and friends. There will be no class during half-term, however our half-term camps will be running.

Our facilitators are dedicated to help Park Life Players:

  • Build confidence, especially in a group situation
  • Work as part of a team to achieve an end goal
  • Audition to play a part, sing, act, dance, or be a part of the ensemble
  • Build props and scenery through arts & crafts activities
  • Find their voice (speaking/monologues in front of a group or audience)
  • Express themselves through the disciplines of theatre (dance, movement, drama & singing)
  • Character development within the text of a play or musical
  • Participate in group games which include co-ordination and motor skills exercises

As our age range is from 6-11 and we often separate into age appropriate groups. This will help us get the best result in all activities from each and every student and it helps to make them feel comfortable.
