The Junior Company
7-10/11 years

The Junior Company gives children the opportunity to explore and  reach their creative potential through performance projects. Designed specifically for those children who love drama and wish to develop their performance skills to a high level,  work on script and are comfortable learning lines and meeting deadlines. The Junior Company is suitable for children who already love performing arts and can participate fully in all three disciplines.

Members of The Junior Company participate in three performance projects per year and must be committed and happy to meet deadlines. The Junior Company is not a drop in drama group.

Winter Project: January - March (Performances March/April)
Spring Project: April - July (Performances July) 
Autumn Project: September - December (Performances December)

Children who participate in a project may automatically continue with the company without auditioning for the next project However, if children miss a project they will be asked to re-audition for the company as places are limited. If children miss a term we cannot guarantee them a place in the company. Long tern current members will always be given priority but must adhere to the payment procedure.. 

Fees for membership of the Junior Company are paid at the beginning of each project,  in full, and in advance. 
Full Membership: £155.50.
