The Workshops :
Students do not have to attend LMA Stage School to take part. LMA aims to increase student's confidence whilst learning about many different aspects of the performing arts. The students will work towards a performance which parents will be invited to watch on the last day.
Workshops will be run covering Musical Theatre, Acting and Dance. Whilst there is not a separate band element this year, students who play an instrument might have the opportunity to perform in one or more of the projects: if you are interested please make LMA / Phil aware of this in advance.
The traditional 'team' element of the summer school week will be ever present, so be prepared for some team games!
of the course : This course sets
out to give young
people the opportunity to explore their artistic potential within an
enthusiastic and disciplined environment. They will be given the chance
to perform to each other and in public, and to investigate the elements
of backstage work and preparation, which go toward putting together an
end-of-course Show Case. The Five main elements, Musical Theatre,
Acting, Dance, Band and Technical will produce a final performance of
selected material studied during the course and an original production.
All course members are given the opportunity to experience the
workshops held in acting, puppetry, composition, musical theatre,
physical theatre, dance, sound/lighting technology, improvisation,
stage fighting and percussion – thereby broadening their
and allowing them to mingle with other course members.
