YACtots is an exciting and fun introduction into Drama. It is designed for young actors aged 5-8. There is lots of fun to be had in these 60 minute sessions, helping build children’s confidence through drama games and gentle improvisation. Young Actors will create scenes through storytelling and use their imagination to build characters. Most importantly YACtots is a safe space for children to create, make friends and have fun whilst learning life skills that will stay with them into adulthood.
YACtots runs on Saturday mornings. The sessions are designed to really capture the imaginations of these young minds. Our YACtots director will take them on exciting adventures to space, the Wild West, riding magic carpets and they may even find themselves inside their favourite book or film.
Children are not required to audition for YACtots – all they need is commitment, a want for fun, play and a love for Acting. Our YACtots will work toward a performance each year.
(Fees per 12 week term: £60)
