The My First classes at The Garage are a wonderful way to explore creativity together with your little one. We will be delving into underwater worlds, flying through space and dancing in muddy puddles (imaginary of course!). My First sessions in theatre, dance, ballet and music will develop skills in movement, communication and self-expression.

At The Garage we believe it’s never too early to begin your creative journey, and with our friendly and nurturing tutors to guide you, the adventure starts here!

PERFORMANCE ACADEMY BOOKINGS CLOSED FOR SUMMER 2024

Over the course of the year, you will hone skills in acting, singing and dance, working towards a production of Shrek The Musical JR. in the July 2024. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who loves performing, is passionate about musical theatre, and wants to experience all aspects of putting on a full-scale production.

Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical. It’s a “big, bright, beautiful world” as everyone’s favourite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek The Musical JR. is an irreverently funny show with a powerful message for the whole family.

There is no audition process and no experience required – we just ask that you are keen to learn in all areas of performing arts. Commitment to weekly sessions, rehearsals and performances is essential. Junior and Senior Company members will take part in Shrek, and fees cover all costs.

PERFORMANCE DATES: Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 July 2024

The physical and mental health benefits of fitness are well-known. And they are enhanced by taking any kind of exercise in a group setting. Working in a group helps with motivation, makes it more likely you’ll push yourself further, is a more social activity, is more structured, and is just more fun than exercising alone. These classes will be tailored to the individual needs of participants.
