In addition, everyone we will begin to learn the movement and music which will be needed for the final production, in combination with games, exercises and scene work to develop the range of skills needed to perform musical theatre.
Develop their self-confidence, problem solving, and public speaking skills through acting exercises/rehearsals.

Meet OTC's Lead Teacher and Coordinator!
Joanna is a professional actress who has worked in theatre, television and film in the UK and the Netherlands. When not on stage herself, she loves to share her knowledge and training with young people, working in schools and with individuals as a workshop leader and coach, teaching theatre skills, Shakespeare and storytelling. She’s constantly inspired by the young people she works with, encouraging them to find their own voice, and delights in watching their confidence grow! It has always been an ambition to start a Youth Theatre, in the hope of providing the kind of enhancing experience she had growing up: The opportunity to make new friends who have the same love of performing, growing together and creating theatre. She wants to support and nurture potential, whilst developing a whole host of valuable life skills along the way – confidence, organization, team work, public speaking and empathy.
