We are a drama and musical theatre company based at The Dance Centre in Bridgend. Following the success of the Dance Academy Show School projects we have decided to expand our love of shows and performing and move into the theatre world!
The group which is run by an amazing team of teachers will be focusing on acting, singing, stagecraft, theory, lighting & sound production. We will occasionally have guest tutors in to host workshops and cover teachers when needed.
We will be running classes to build technique confidence, progress through examinations and put on productions. We want to create a fantastic environment for the students to learn and develop. The theatre can be such a magical mischievous place and we believe all children should enjoy it! During each term we focus on different areas on theatre working towards our summer production.
We just had an amazing time at our 'Night At The Musicals' show which was held on 17th July 2022 in Porthcawl Pavilion. The students are so incredible and gave a fantastic performance.
There will be USB Video of the show available to purchase at the studio and the photo album from the event is on our Facebook page.
Our next performance will be our Mischief Musical Showcase which will be held at the studio on Saturday 17th December. We hope to see you all there ready for drama, music, mulled wine and mince pies!
Throughout the year we will be putting students forward for examinations in Drama with the U.K.A and Musical Theatre Singing with LAMDA. There will be opportunities for solo exams and group singing exams. We will establish which students would like to work toward these awards and will let you know when they are ready. These types of exams are usually held on weekends or a weekday, the same as some dance exams. We will give the students letters to advise the school that they need the time off as it is an extra-curricular accredited examination.
UKA Dates: 23rd, 3oth Oct and 13th Nov 22. LAMDA Dates: February 2023.
We will be holding a presentation evening twice a year. This will be to present the examination awards students will have done and to give recognition and merit awards from the teachers.
We are very keen to encourage the students with their achievements and lots of positive reinforcement of their learning. All students will be involved even if they have not taken part in any examinations yet.
Our next presentation evening and party night will be held on Sunday 11th December. Details of times and arrangements will be sent out near to the time.
Once a month we host our Musicals and Movie Club. Students may bring their own sweets and snacks and a comfy blanket. We will be watching a different Musical on the big screen in the studio. Our next dates are:
On our webpage we have a student’s area, we will upload scripts, lyrics, rehearsal videos and other information for practice. Please ask your teachers for the password for each class.
We also recommend that students bring a folder to class every week as we will be giving out revision sheets, quiz’s, scripts and worksheets.
