There’s something for all ages here – from music and movement classes for mums and toddlers with Verona’s Balloon Band - to our brand new Adult Acting Classes; Act Now based here at New Wimbledon Theatre. This gives you the opportunity of working with a trained actor and teacher to hone those hidden acting talents- and it’s open to anyone over 25 years old.
Also, you can channel your inner Broadway star on our 10 week Adult Musical Theatre course. The course builds to a final performance in the Studio Theatre here at NWT and is led by a seasoned professional actor. The perfect opportunity to tread the boards, belt out a show-stopper and have fun at the same time.
We’re hugely excited about the visit from Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures next April with their brand new show, The Red Shoes show. We’re delighted to announce that New Adventures dancers will also be joining us for two very special Red Shoes Dance Workshops giving you a unique introduction to Matthew Bourne’s amazing body of work. There’s lots more besides so be sure to book early, we expect many of these classes to be hugely popular.
In July of this year our Young Actors Company took to the main stage at New Wimbledon Theatre for the first time, along with 8 schools from across our borough. Take a look at the film we made about the show, which was a World Premiere – Grace; A Youth Musical. The film takes you behind the scenes as our Young Actors rehearse and perform the show. Produced by Creative Learning, the production was made possible by the commitment of the whole team here at NWT.
Contact the Young Actors Company administrator for more information about how to join, email Katie. It’s open to anyone between the ages of 11 and 19 who either lives or attends school in Merton- and it’s absolutely FREE!
We’re also planning a major musical theatre production of Bugsy Malone next summer. This is a unique chance to work with experienced theatre professionals and perform in the hit show. Auditions will be during the summer half term next May and you can book your place by emailling us now!
