Tuesday 5.30-7 (Primary ages), 7-8.30 (Secondary Ages)  

NK Theatre Arts Drama Workshops are open to children and young people aged 5-16yrs and will see members placed in a tutor group of a similar age for drama sessions and will work within that group
until the end of the summer term. Members will learn all the various drama techniques such as improvisation, script work, role-play, confidence
building, empathy for others and performance skills. In addition they will have the option to take part in the Musical Theatre Classes (stage dance and
singing technique) offered by the Company.   Musical Theatre classes focus on singing and dancing and will largely involve using songs from musicals as a stimulus
for individual or group singing and dancing througout the year.

Once members reach the age of 17, they may be invited to join our Adult Performance Class or may prefer to join the NK Access Class.

Throughout the year we are involved in many exciting theatrical performances. We have one annual production involving the whole Company
plus other major shows, plays, reviews and events. NK members also undertake many other small scale performances such as in house class presentations,
carnivals and street theatre. Members may be called to rehearse for any of the above events on other evenings during the week.  Our adult members will
take place in such events, although there are no regular workshops for adults, there are sessions from time to time.

Our season runs from September to July; we don’t close for school holidays apart from the Christmas period but there are no NK Sessions on Bank Holidays
which generally affects our Musical Theatre Workshops.   In August we run daytime week long Summer Theatre Workshop sessions which is open to members
and non-members which culminates in a Friday evening production.

We expect loyalty and determination from our young people and in return we give motivation, excitement and self-esteem.  NK is regarded as an educational
as well as a recreational establishment and should be respected as such by members and parents.
