Dates for your Diary

Dear Parents,

We hope you have all had a lovely summer break. We can’t believe it’s almost September!! We had great fun at our High School Musical Summer School at the end of July and it was lovely to have two of our former students, Sophie and Ciara back to teach. Another one of our former students, Sarah Boylon will be making her directorial debut, directing a play called “Go on Dad, Knock” at the Liverpool Hope Street Theatre 4th – 7th September and a couple of our current students also have parts. We’re looking forward to watching it!
So the new Stage Door term is about to commence! As usual, we have lots in store this year…….

Our autumn term commences on Saturday 7th September and will run for 7 weeks until Thursday 24th October. We will be having a Halloween themed workshop for all ages on Saturday 26th October and then we will be off for the half term. Lessons will begin again on Tuesday the 5th November and we will run for another 7 weeks until Saturday 21st December.

Well done to all our LAMDA students who sat their exams in July. We hope to have the results back and ready to give out to the students when the new term commences. We have our next LAMDA exam session booked for Sunday 1st December 2019. This will mainly be for students who attend the weekly Lamda class on a Saturday afternoon and for private students. Please let us know if you would like any further information.

A few parents have enquired about how to get their children registered on the casting database Spotlight. Spotlight is a professional casting database, showcasing young performers and connecting them to casting directors who are always searching for fresh talent in television, stage and commercials. For those looking for audition opportunities it is an advantage to be a member. We are registered with Spotlight so get in touch if you’d like any further information. We realise that this is not for everyone and it is in no way compulsory or expected for you to join Spotlight! Our main aim at Stage Door is that your child develops their confidence, has lots of fun, learns new performance skills and makes friends.

During the half term, we will be having a Halloween themed Spooky Musical Theatre Workshop on Saturday 26th October 10am-3pm open to all ages. Juniors will be working on Corpse Bride, ghostly stories, spooky songs and terrifying poems. The Seniors will be looking at Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Addams Family the Musical, Sweeney Todd and The Phantom of the Opera! The workshop will cost £20 for the day.

Our Saturday Senior Drama class will be doing a Christmas Panto for the younger students and parents on Tuesday 17th December 2019. Oh yes they will!!!! Get the date in your diary and watch this space for more information.

We will be having our annual Christmas themed Drama Workshop on Sunday 15th December 2019. This will be on the theme of Classic Christmas movies!!! Which is YOUR favourite? Let us know!!

We are just waiting for confirmation but we are planning for our annual Junior show to take place on Saturday March 28th and Sunday March 29th 2020. We can’t wait as it was so fantastic last year!!! Watch this space for news on our Senior Show!!!

We are planning to enter the Smile Together Dance festival again which will take place on Sunday 26th April 2020 at The Liverpool Empire Theatre. It’s a really fun day and a great opportunity for our dancers to experience performing on the biggest stage in Liverpool!! We will be in touch with all the relevant information nearer the time.

We have a few changes to our timetable below.
1. Our Senior Drama, which is currently on Tuesday 6pm till 7pm is now extending until 8pm for those who wish to stay longer!!
2. Stage Tots will now be an hour long class and will be commencing at 9am to give the little ones a bit more time to get in and settled before we have lots of fun!!
3. Ballet will be at the usual time of 7pm till 8pm on a Tuesday for the first half term but after the October half term it will be swapping to a Wednesday 6pm till 7pm and Sarah will be combining it with TAP!! We will also have a new beginners Ballet and Tap which will start after the October half term for younger students. This will also be on a Wednesday 5pm-6pm (Beginners 4-8yrs)

Enjoy the rest of your Summer break and we look forward to seeing you all back very soon!!!
