Basingstoke Classes

Children's Theatre and Drama Classes in Hampshire

Theatre4Kids is an established independent theatre school with classes at Sherfield Park Community Centre, Basingstoke for 4 - 14 year olds. Being an independent school, we are able to offer high quality classes at an affordable rate. We also offer a two week trial for all new students which is covered by a non-refundable booking fee of £30.00 per student which is offset against the first terms fees should a student wish to continue after the trial period. Please contact us for further information on trials and fees.

Our Basingstoke students participate in a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year. Opportunities in the last year have included; 'Peter Pan' with UK Productions, 'La Traviata', 'Tosca', 'Aida' and 'Madame Butterfly' with the Ellen Kent Opera and Ballet International Company and 'Moving Experience' with the Basingstoke Academy of Dance all taking place at The Anvil, Basingstoke. Students have also had the chance to perform at Her Majesty's Theatre, London and in our bi-annual showcase 'Once Upon a Time' which took place at The Hammond Theatre, Hampton. Our next performance projects include; 'T4K Summer Showcase' at Central Studio, Basingstoke and 'The Basingstoke Variety Show' at The Anvil.

Tots 4 to 7 years

Wednesday 4.00pm - 5.00pm

Wednesday 5.00pm - 6.00pm

The children work on specially selected songs and dances to build on their musicality, as well as their rhythm and co-ordination. Drama games are played in order to enhance confidence and basic script work is used to develop performance skills and vocal technique. The students really do learn ‘skills for life’ which are very important at this young and impressionable age. However, the main emphasis of the sessions is to have fun!

Juniors 7 to 10 years

Tuesday 4.30pm - 6.30pm

Thursday 4.30pm - 6.30pm

The classes include training in the performance disciplines of; acting, singing and dancing. By teaching these elements together, we are able to produce high quality pieces of musical theatre. The students experience what it is like to work as a theatre company and there is a strong emphasis on teamwork. The children will also work closely with the older students from our T4K Seniors group which helps to develop on their performance skills and increase confidence even further.
