Little Players Group A

School years 7 & 8 (ages 11 & 12) Saturday Workshop

Group A is for our eldest Saturday students where they will advance their skills in all three disciplines. They will develop a deeper understanding of the craft of theatre, and the importance of teamwork and collaboration. Students will learn to express themselves creatively and confidently, while also listening and responding to their fellow actors. We believe that these skills are not only important for the stage, but also for life outside the theatre.

Saturday A Acting


Our Group A Drama classes allow young actors to embark on a journey of artistic growth and expression. During our sessions, we dive into the realm of naturalism, helping students develop a deep understanding of authentic and relatable acting. Through exercises and improvisation, students with focus on character development, learning to bring characters to life with complexity, depth, and motivation.

Our classes provide a safe space for children to understand and express emotions, adding depth to their performances. As pupils develop through the group we look deeper into script work and monologues, guiding students on how to approach scripts with confidence and insight by dissecting scenes, understanding subtext, and delivering lines with conviction. Monologues offer a unique opportunity for personal expression. Our students learn the art of delivering compelling monologues that captivate audiences and reveal the depth of their characters.


During Group A’s singing lessons, students participate in an extensive vocal warm-up that includes fitness and advanced techniques. During the warmup students also enhance their knowledge of vocal health, learning how to protect their vocal cords, and practice exercises to strengthen their voice.
Group A students engage in exercises that aim to improve their pitch, tone, and breath control. With guidance they learn various singing techniques such as belting, control and dynamics, focusing on how to interpret and convey emotions through their singing, which is essential in delivering a captivating performance, whether that be in a group song or solo.


Dance is a beautiful art form that not only allows individuals to express themselves but also promotes physical fitness and mental wellbeing. Group A dance classes are a perfect opportunity for students to take their skills to the next level. With more challenging warm ups, students will prepare their bodies with cardio warm ups and extensive corner work. Along with that, flexibility exercises will aid in increasing the range of motion in joints and muscles. This will help students perform more complex dance moves with greater ease and grace. From jazz to commercial and all in between, the routines taught in these classes will challenge and inspire students to reach their full potential as dancers.
