22/03/2019 Home Education classes with the Limelight Theatre Company

Limelight Theatre Company delighted to expand their Home Education classes, with a trial session on Tuesday 2nd April 2019.


Home Education Background

We have listened to your feedback following on from our Performing Arts for Home Educators sessions and are delighted to confirm that we will be offering two different age group sessions. In addition, we will trial a Home Education Choir session too!

Details for the Home Education sessions

On Tuesday 2nd April the classes will be as follows:

10.00am-11.00am Choir with Anne Berry-Smith @ £5.00

11..00am-11.40am Performing arts for those children aged 5-10 with Anne Berry-Smith @ £4.50 – this session for the younger children will include fun drama games

11.00am-12.00pm Performing arts for those children aged 10-16 with Hayley Evenett @ £5.00 – this session for the older children will be more focused on script work and improvisation

Future Home Education sessions:

After this trial day, the term will commence on Tuesday 23rd April, running through until Tuesday 16th July inclusive, with a one week break on Tuesday 28th May due to our half term show week at the Maddermarket.

We are asking students to sign up for this 12-week term, so that the tutors can plan to work on bringing all the students together on a scene or short performance at the end of term. Longer term, the older group will be working towards LAMDA exams should they so wish.

Tutors for Home Education sessions

Limelight Theatre Company is lucky to have two wonderful tutors for these sessions.

I was blown away by the fantastic production of Cats at the Maddermarket. Many bravos and encores to everyone involved, especially the very young yet very talented cast.
