A very warm welcome to OSO Youth Theatre Programme 2024, a perfect introduction to theatre for 6-11 year olds. Take part in fun and imaginative weekly sessions in an encouraging environment. Our sessions place the students at the forefront, supporting them in confidence building, listening, working together, self-expression and learning new skills. Each week we will explore different approaches to drama through theatre games, voice, movement, storytelling, ensemble work, devising and taking inspiration from different artistic mediums.
These classes will lead to an annual summer performance. There will also be opportunities for informal demonstrations of work throughout the year.
Classes will be led by Georgia Melton. Georgia is a professional actor and facilitator with a First Class Honours in BA (Hons) Acting. Since graduating from Arts University Bournemouth, where she first discovered her passion for teaching, Georgia has taught Drama at Stagecoach Performing Arts for two years before joining the OSO. As an actor she has worked professionally in theatre and television. Georgia draws from techniques of multiple practitioners using voice and movement skills alongside mindfulness to inform a well-rounded approach to Drama. Georgia also has a great enthusiasm for writing and creating new work.

Half term (no session): Monday 12th February 2024
