Students in an Altrincham Garrick Academy's Saturday Class

GAPA Saturday Groups

GAPA currently runs seven Saturday groups: six on a Saturday morning for our 8 to 18 year olds, with our MINI GAPA class, for 5 to 8 year olds, on Saturday afternoons.

Throughout the year, the groups work towards the goal of putting a production onto the main stage. The year starts with stagecraft, skills and audition preparation, giving students 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.

Working through this process, the students learn the valuable skills required of rehearsing and putting on a production, whilst being surrounded by fun and laughter.

The Saturday group times are as follows:

Session 1: 9:00-11:00 (Classes 1-3)
Session 2: 11:30-13:30 (Classes 4-6)
Session 3: 14:00 – 15:30 (Class 7 MINI GAPA)
