It is expected that in order for students to develop their talents; hard work, perseverance, responsibility and respect will achieve this.
The philosophy behind our work is to help students attain a high standard of performance and self-discipline.
Theatre classes involve a mixture of vocal and physical work, character and script development, improvisation and workshopping which contribute to a grounding in theatre work. These things combined with warm-ups and self-development exercises create interesting and exciting classes.
