How Children Sign Up
After a visit to your school during an assembly to inform the pupils of the opportunity, those children who wish to take part will give a letter to their families with instructions for how to sign up through this website.
Upon completion of registration, your admin team will receive a copy of the register.
The Weekly Activity
The school year is broken into two projects: September - February, and February - July.
Participating children will meet in the school hall each week after school. Sessions last an hour or ninety minutes, and involve games and exercises designed to increase confidence and skill.
The first three weeks of each project are interactive workshops which explore educational themes from the the production the children are making.
Each project will culminate in a performance of a famous musical in a professional venue for an audience of family and friends.
February's performance will feature only children from your school for a smaller audience; July's performance will bring together several participating schools to perform at for an audience of 500+.
Workshops adhere to a syllabus set by the Victoria College of Music and Drama, who will send an examiner to sit in the audience at the February productions. Each member of the cast will have the opportunity to earn a qualification for taking part according to the college's criteria.
Free to Your School
There is no cost involved for participating schools, as families pay a nominal fee of £4 per hour with a 10% siblings' discount. Schools can, by request, use the Generate Theatre Arts After School Drama Club as a Pupil Premium opportunity if they wish.
