Themes are chosen each week, and these are then explored through role play and theatrical games and songs. The children can and will become pirates, police officers, marathon runners or the three little pigs (the list is endless). There are times when what we explore is practiced and “performed” as after all, it is theatre!
Physical theatre, script based work, devised work and performance of prose and poetry will all be explored in a fun and supportive atmosphere. An important aspect of a theatre session is not only to create and rehearse, but to build towards a performance, and it is expected that each group will take part in a performance.
The older groups (14+) will begin to devise original shows, creating theatre work that is important to them whilst exploring various topics. The students have the opportunity to showcase these performances at various public performances throughout the year. In the past Love Theatre Academy have performed at The Weekender, Liberation Day, Jersey Zoo and have toured one show to Primary Schools across the Island. The 14+ class will also be working on Acting for the Camera and audition technique.
The characters and narratives of a vast number of Musical Theatre shows will be explored, scenes will be staged and songs will be sung! Led by our Musical Theatre specialist teacher, these sessions allow performers who want to develop more than their acting skills the opportunity to do so in a friendly and fun environment. Solo singing is not compulsory, but singing is a big part of this unique and super fun style of performance. Musical Theatre groups will also work towards performances at a variety of events.
Since 2014 Love Theatre Productions have created high quality Theatre in Education shows. These shows are designed to tour both Primary and Secondary schools delivering educational, enriching and engaging productions. Love Theatre works in collaboration with charities and organisations to devise, rehearse, produce and tour these productions to specific target audiences. Love Theatre have well developed contacts in all local schools, and the schedule, the tour, and the delivery of the project can all be taken care of. Creating a 20 minute “assembly sized” production or full length shows, Love Theatre will work with each organisation to promote, educate, inspire and intervene using engaging theatre.

LAMDA is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding organisations. They have been offering practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 130 years. In this time, their qualifications have helped hundreds of thousands of candidates of all ages and abilities to develop lifelong skills.
The LAMDA examinations award grades 1-8, and are similar to grades you would expect to gain for a musical instrument. These grades are globally recognised qualifications and also can contribute to UCAS university application points (pass with merit at grade 8 is the equivalent points to an A at AS-level).
Training for these grades will be delivered in short sessions, usually based on a one-to-one or a one-to-two ratio, and as with a musical instrument it is expected that students will rehearse in their own time.
Exams can be taken in the following:
