...it's communication...that's what theatre is all about..."
Students rehearse weekly with levels of discipline to complement professional process and technique in order to stage an end-of-year public performance. Productions may include full-scale musicals, Shakespeare, Classic and Contemporary works as well as children's classics.
Based at Camberley Theatre, our Production Companies for 2023/2024 will meet each term to give students the opportunity to be creative and develop their stagecraft through a variety of skills:
Drama and performance based techniques:
improvisation, role-play, devising and script work
Musical based techniques:
music and movement, space and shape, rhythm and technique
Members of the Youth Companies will take part in a fully staged production at Camberley Theatre each year, as well as being invited to take part in additional performance opportunities as a representative of the CMA Youth Companies: Young Performers, Young Actors and Company One.
Company members will be encouraged to join us in exploring and experiencing live and streamed theatre and performance events, musicals and music recitals, radio plays, poetry readings and more.
Experiencing and being able to enjoy feedback and discussion as part of a group is extremely beneficial.
Company members will also receive benefits at the theatre including 'theatre club membership' offering discount theatre tickets and the potential to gain employment through the Work Experience scheme.
