Creative Minds Academy
The Creative Minds Academy, in an Arts Partnership with Camberley Theatre, opens in September 2016 offering theatre training and education programmes for students in theatre performance and technical production skills.
We run classes for children in 5 different age groups
Tinies: under 4's
Minis: 4 - 7 years
Juniors: 7 - 11 years
Inters: 12 - 14 years
Seniors: 14 - 16 years
We also run Advanced Skills courses for those aged 16+ and Adults classes in fitness.
We offer Academy Classes which cover the fundamental basics in the disciplines of:
Acting (also known as Drama) focusing on the elements of performance through voice and physicality.
Musical Theatre is the art of combining acting and song with movement to tell a story.
Singing the art of producing controlled musical sounds through the voice and working together to create harmonies and ensemble sound.
Technical Skills covers the elements of lighting, sound and stage management.
The Youth Theatre is for students who want to focus on performance skills. The Tuesday Musical Theatre Company (8 – 16 years) use the skills acquired in class to create a production across 1 year. A well-known musical will be staged in the main auditorium of Camberley Theatre in July 2017.
The Thursday Acting Company are split into age groups and focus on performance skills and theatre practice working towards the Trinity Arts Award and individual examinations with LAMDA and Trinity College, London. The Thursday Acting Company will also be working towards the Trinity Arts Award.
The Advanced Skills Courses are designed for students aged 16+ to develop and expand existing skills. Working in all disciplines of theatre through a series of linked workshops, students have a specific outcome and achievement which could be presented in performance, assessment or examination.
Weekly classes run during term time for students in theatre performance and technical skills with regular performance opportunities. The Youth Theatre programmes work towards an annual production or showcase supported by professional tutors and technical team. The Advanced Skills Workshops are 6 week intensive or 10 week courses suitable for those looking to go into theatre training and auditions or looking to gain qualifications and certification with nationally recognised examination boards.
Week commencing Monday 19th September – week commencing Monday 28th November.
