The My First classes at The Workshop are a wonderful way to explore creativity, imaginative play and to share something fun together. We will be delving into underwater worlds, flying through space and dancing in muddy puddles (imaginary of course!). My First sessions in ballet and performing arts will develop skills in movement, communication and self-expression.

At The Workshop we believe it’s never too early to begin your creative journey, and with our friendly and nurturing practitioners to guide you, the adventure starts here!

Over the course of the year, you will hone skills in acting, singing and dance, working towards a production of The Wizard of Oz at St George’s Guildhall, King’s L:ynn, in July 2025. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who loves performing, is passionate about musical theatre, and wants to experience all aspects of putting on a full-scale production.

The most beloved tale of all time comes to life on the stage. Dorothy and her three friends trot delightfully and tunefully down that fabled road of yellow brick in The Wizard Of Oz.

After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of OZ, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.

There is no audition process and no experience required – we just ask that you are keen to learn in all areas of performing arts. Commitment to weekly sessions, rehearsals and performances is essential. Junior and Senior Company members will take part in The Wizard of Oz, and fees cover all costs.
