Our classes are designed to improve and develop the skill and technique of our cast members beyond their compulsory Saturday rehearsal and, therefore, benefit the overall quality of our productions.
Cast members can attend these classes at no extra cost. We encourage participation, however, it is not compulsory.
For this production, we will have a Musical Theatre class which is available for all cast members to attend and consists of Dance Technique, Stretch & Strength and Singing Studio.
Cast members may be invited to join our 'Encore Troupe' which will rehearse after Musical Theatre and follows a similar structure, however, is designed for more experienced performers.
Here is the Tuesday timetable:
6:30-7:30 | Musical Theatre
7:30-8:30 | Encore Troupe (Invitation Only)
This portion of the class focuses on sense of rhythm and coordination, precision in movement and performance quality through learning and improving on basic dance steps, combinations and progressions across the floor.
Stretch & Strength
Encourages cast members to correctly warm up their body, building strength, and the stamina to sing and dance at the same time! Includes a variety of exercises based on pilates, yoga, strength and cardio.
This is designed to provide our cast members with a sound knowledge of how to use your voice in a safe and healthy way through understanding correct vocal warm ups and technique exercises. Performers will develop their ability to sing in harmony within an ensemble and explore a range of musical theatre songs.
This section of the class will focus on successfully building a character, delivering dialogue and telling a story on stage. Through improvisation activities, vocal work and dramatic techniques, students will gain confidence in integrating their acting skills into all disciplines of musical theatre performance.
Encore Troupe (Invitation Only)
This class is designed for cast members who are confident and experienced in all three disciplines (acting, singing and dancing). We will focus on group performance numbers, being aware of musicianship and dynamics, whilst incorporating advanced movements.
A selection of cast members will be invited to join the Encore Troupe after participating in the Musical Theatre class for the first few weeks. Those who are interested in being part of this invitation only group must commit to attending every week.
