Acting & Music Theatre
SATURDAYS 15:00 - 17:00 (Acting & Music Theatre)
Through fun drama games and exercises students develop confidence, performance and language skills. At this senior level, students study voice production in more depth and the value of this in communication and performance. Key skills include projection, articulation and vocal variety.
Students enjoy learning valuable improvisation techniques. Through studying improvisation students learn characterisation, expression and spontaneity. They also learn to work effectively in a group.
A variety of texts including scripts and poems are studied and performed. At this level we begin to study more complex characters and situations. Students are encouraged to explore a variety of texts from different periods and styles. We study modern pieces both comic and serious which students can relate to and enjoy. Depending on levels our senior students begin to study texts from the pre-1900s, including the periods of ‘English Renaissance’ (including Shakespeare), ‘Restoration’ and ‘Victorian’ theatre.
In Music Theatre students enjoy the pleasure of singing and improving their vocal technique. They can choose from a variety of songs from the musicals. We also encourage them to explore the world of music theatre and discover musicals both old and new.
Open Class! At the end of our first semester students perform in an open class. This is a fantastic opportunity to show the variety of pieces, scenes and songs they have learnt to family and friends.
Show Time! At the end of the second semester students take part in our end of year extravaganza. We choose an enjoyable story suitable for their age group. We believe every child has a special talent and there is always a role for everyone to play!
Exams: We can prepare students for exams in acting and music theatre with the London College of Music. Students need to have private lessons to be able to do this and exams take place in London.
English language level requirement: Students need to speak at least upper-intermediate English to cope with Saturday classes. If your child does not have a high level of English but you would like them to learn please see our partner language school website: www.theworks.hu
