Theatre Class is BACK!
Theatre Classes return to The Acorn in September and we can’t wait! Classes are limited to 15 children, so we’ve doubled the number of classes and changed class times around a little to fit them in. We must stress that to register for a class, full term payment must be made in advance at our ONLINE SHOP. Places are strictly limited to 15 per class & will go on sale at 12pm on Monday 24th August, allocated on a first-come, first served basis - so book early to secure your preferred class day and time!

After an INCREDIBLE summer providing our Theatre Weeks, we are back in action with our Theatre Classes and we CAN’T WAIT!
2020 has been challenging for all of us and meant the biggest lapse in our Theatre Classes for 27 years. We’ve still run free weekly online sessions and activities for our youngsters, and even raised nearly £2,000 for the Bassetlaw Food Bank with our Rainbow Song Video! However, this September we’re back at The Acorn and ready for as much fun as ever, whilst still providing a safe environment for pupils and staff.
Here are some of the changes you’re going to see:
Only 15 children can be signed up to each class.
To register for a class, full payment for the term is required.
There are more classes to allow for the reduction in class size.
There will be a 15 minute cleaning time between classes.
Only Theatre Class pupils are allowed into the building.
Parents must drop off & collect pupils at the front door.
Pupils must wash hands on entering & exiting the theatre.
Term fees have increased slightly to £65 per term (our first increase for several years)
To allow for more classes & cleaning, class times will be different from usual, but with more classes to choose from hopefully everyone will find a suitable day & time to attend.
We must stress that to register for a class, full term payment must be made using our webstore, and places are strictly limited to 15 per class due to government guidelines. Places will go on sale at 12pm on Monday 24th August at www.youngtheatre.com and will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis - so book early to secure your preferred class day and time!
The class timetable is:
4.00-5.00 pm Nippers Theatre Class (Reception to Year 2)
5.15-6.15 pm Red Junior Theatre Class (Year 3 to Year 6)
6.30-7.30 pm Orange Junior Theatre Class (Year 3 to Year 6)

Sadly, it’s impossible to produce our spectacular pantomime this Christmas due to current guidelines. However, we’ll be working towards individual performances from each class, meaning every pupil will still get their chance to shine on stage - but probably to a socially distanced audience! Performance dates, times and details will be confirmed later.
