The Garrick Academy
GAPA – Garrick Academy of Performing Arts
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 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.
