The Middle Ones

Thursdays at 19:00-20:20

The Middle Ones class is suitable for 10-14 year olds and each session contains a mixture of fun games, improvisation and text work encouraging our students to work as team to create drama. Our Middle Ones class lasts 80 minutes.

The Middle Ones class is designed to introduce students to acting or expand on any previous experience they may have, catering to each students individual needs.

Our students work on a new project each term, including short stories, plays and devising work, which are shown as part of a sharing at the end of term for friends and family. These projects are designed to introduce students to working as an ensemble, learning lines and expanding on the skills learnt throughout the term.

We are regularly contacted throughout the year regarding casting opportunities for theatre, television, film and radio productions by casting directors, which in turn provides our students with some potentially invaluable opportunities in the industry.
