Over the course of three terms, you will build skills in acting, singing and dance, working towards performances at the end of the summer term. You will work with a Director, Musical Director and Choreographer, plus other members of the Production team, and your show will take place in The Garage Theatre.

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 and the Beast JR. tells the story of Belle, an adventurous young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell.  

In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return – before time runs out.  With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, including a loving teapot, a charming candelabra, and a nervous mantel clock, Belle and the Beast find a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible.  

Beauty and the Beast JR. features classic songs from the Academy Award®-winning film score such as “Be Our Guest” and “Belle,” as well as original songs from the 1994 Tony®-nominated Broadway musical. 

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. Fees cover all costs.

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.

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.
