Free Trial | Saturday Theatre School


Free Week Taster Session

We are able to arrange a Free taster session for entry each new term. As our 2023/2024 showcase is on September 28th 2024 we are offering taster sessions from the beginning of October 2024.

Please select your child’s school year, (Reception to Yr 5 is 9am-11.25am and Yr 5 to Yr 11 is 11.30am to 2pm) and then choose the date you would like them to attend.

Our uniform is black, we ask that children attending a trial can wear as close to this as possible and wear appropriate footwear for dance and movement.



Each week during term time, children take part in a dance, drama and singing lesson tailored to their specific age group. Members gain theatre knowledge, performance skills, make friends, build confidence & work towards an end of year showcase at the Miller Theatre (set within the grounds of RGS) where children can demonstrate the skills they have learnt throughout the year. Whether your child is into musical theatre, hip hop, jazz, or contemporary dance…whether your child is into script writing, improvisation, performance skills…whether your child is into vocal technique, harmonies, ensemble or solo singing…Chimney Sweep do it all.

Who can come? All children aged 4 to 16 years. Whether your child has previous experience or wants to gain theatre skills, all are welcome.

When are the classes and how do they run? Each Saturday during school term time. Children are grouped together in school year age groups and rotate from class to class.
