Theatre School – Saturdays

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 you child is into script writing, improvisation, performance skills……whether you 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.
