Youth Theatre

Creative Minds Academy 

Youth Theatre and Performance Training

The Creative Minds Academy, in an Arts Partnership with Camberley Theatre offers theatre training and education programmes for students in theatre performance and technical production skills to students from 4 years to adult age.

Age Groups: Tinies (under 4’s), Minis (4 - 7 years) Juniors (8 - 11 years) Inters (12 - 14 years) Seniors (14 - 16 years) Adults (16+). We also run Advanced Skills courses for those aged 16+.

Our Saturday Academy Classes cover the fundamental basics in the disciplines of Acting, Musical Theatre, Singing and Dance and students will have performance opportunities throughout the year, culminating in a Whole School Performance Showcase at the end of the Summer Term (July).
Our Youth Theatre is designed for students who want to create theatre and focus on either performance or technical theatre skills.  These two hours sessions give our students the opportunity to explore their discipline with guidance for the tutor to create, develop and perform using technical skills and performance techniques.


School Holiday Workshops

Our holiday workshops are run by experienced staff who will inspire students to produce a show at the end of the week for family and friends to watch. Students will build up their confidence, learn and develop new skills, make new friends and no prior experience is necessary. There are limited places available so advanced booking is advised.
