GAPA is back!
To all GAPA Guardians: thank you so much for keeping in touch to help us re-ignite the drama-fire in all our lives, and we’re delighted to announce that GAPA is back.
26th to 30th October sees our GAPA “Dramathon”
Saturday 7th November 2020 is the first day of this new term
Due to currently being limited to 15 students per class (plus support staff), we have amended the class times and ages.
The session timings for the new term Saturdays are as follows:

- Session 2 : 11.30.am – 1.30pm
- Session 3 : 2.00pm – 4.00pm
For the year ahead, the classes are grouped by their Key Stage status; this will hopefully minimise any potential disruption. The groups are:
- KS1: years 1, 2 and 3
- KS2: years 4, 5 and 6
- KS3: years 7, 8 and 9
- KS4/5: years 10, 11, 12 and 13

The Garrick Academy of Performing Arts’ Youth Theatre runs classes on Saturdays for ages 5 to 18 and is the place to be if you love acting, singing or dancing. Throughout the year, the classes work towards the goal of putting their production onto the stage.
The year typically starts with stage craft, skills and audition preparation, giving them the opportunity to enhance and develop their performance skills. Then, it’s audition time and once the play is cast, the rehearsals start and all the elements of the show are put together. Throughout this process they learn valuable skills required when rehearsing and putting on a production, whilst being surrounded by fun and laughter.
In addition to our Saturday drama classes, the Garrick Academy of Performing Arts is pleased to offer group and one-to-one speech and drama lessons, as well as the opportunity to complete speech and drama exams with LAMDA. Go here for further details.
Whether you are interested in joining GAPA to perform, write, direct, or get involved in the many back-stage activities that no show can do without, please contact Bev Wells in the Box Office on 0161 928 1677 or email us at email@example.com.
