Thursday Junior Club
Founded in 2015, our young and aspiring members have put on some fantastic productions, including The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, The Wizard of Oz and Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of The Jungle Book. Their last live full stage production was an original brand new panto inspired by the 300 year old legendary tale of Robinson Crusoe, written by Tim Rowland. The funny and traditional Christmas pantomime was performed on 22nd December 2019 at the All Saints Centre to a high spirited audience which sang, stomped and clapped along throughout the show. Huge thanks to all who took part, volunteered their time and cake baking skills, as well as to the local businesses who very generously donated raffle prizes which helped to raise £100 for The Flying Seagull Project and the Starr Trust.

Saturday Youth Group
For more than eight years, our Saturday members have developed a keener understanding of self, created their own unique multi-media productions, and performed a number of small scale productions, including for instance Pinero’s Victoriana comedietta – Trelawny of the ‘Wells’ (on-stage at the All Saints Centre) and a radio play collaboration with the Youth Group of Floyd Dell’s – King Arthur’s Socks and Other Village Plays, as wells Dexter and Winter’s Detective Agency.
Radio & Voiceover Workshops for Kids
A brand new Tuesday evening group created in response to our members wish to continue some of the voice and improvisational skills developed during their involvement with our fun virtual Easter and Summer schools which took place this year via video conferencing.
Members are learning a variety of acting techniques such as character development, improvisation, voice exercises, breathing techniques, improvisation and method acting. These sessions aim to boost concentration as well as skills in presentation, teamwork and enhanced confidence. Each term we work through a different and fun radio or stage script and explore characters. So far we’ve enjoyed Flash Gordon and Dragnet.
Radio & Voiceover Workshops for Adults
Our Adult Acting Group performed their very first show at the All Saints Centre in Lewes on 15th September 2019 titled Beatus Medium – a brand new play by Tim Rowland. Their last production was Dracula: The Bloody Truth, which was also very well received and enjoyed by our audience members.
During the pandemic, this Monday evening group transitioned from stage to online video calls to continue their vocal training and acting tuition. Due to lifestyle demands and pressures of a healthy work-life balance, the workshops will remain virtual and the group is currently exploring a diverse range of radio and stage plays.
