Fifty-Two children from the Burton, Swadlincote, Derby and Uttoxeter areas are celebrating this week after passing their Speech and Drama exams with flying colours!
The children aged between 5-16 from Theatre Cats Stage School which has classes in Burton, Newhall, Uttoxeter and Derby, took Drama exams run by Trinity College London.
They had to prepare monologues, mimes, recite poetry and prose from memory, discuss their chosen pieces and engage in story-telling to pass their exams. Some even had to write their own pieces and improvise.
The exam process was purely optional for every student. “The two exam days were a huge success and we look forward to presenting the certificates to the students in September. They have all worked so hard and we are very proud!” Said the Principal Catherine Towland.
Theatre Cats offers theatre classes for 5-16 year-olds in Staffordshire and Derbyshire along with Glee show choirs for adults. The stage school is also running a Disney’s Aladdin Musical Theatre Summer School for 5-16 year-olds from 20th – 24th August in Littleover, Derby. Call 01283 531635 to book a place. Their Newhall Summer School is already full.
Many of the weekly classes are full but enrollment is now open for the new term which starts in September.
Thanks to Cat Towland for the info.
