Previous background

Act Out & Act Up are our affordable community drama classes for children and young people aged 6 to 16 years.  Classes are provided at a minimal cost* with no auditions needed to qualify for a place and are accessible to all levels and abilities.  Sessions cover theatrical skills in acting, storytelling and spoken word, directing, writing, improvisation, stage-management, dance and singing.

Our core philosophy is to build vital life skills through performance practice and cultivating a safe, fun environment to encourage development of communication, cooperation, confidence and problem solving.

There are also opportunities for public performance at town events e.g. Stony Stratford big Lunch, Switch-On Day and in our own productions including an annual Pantomime.

Thursdays (term time only) at York House Centre:

Ages: 6 to 11 years

Cost: £40 per term* (average 13 sessions per term)

Ages: 11 to 16 years

Cost: £40 per term* (average 13 sessions per term)

*We offer a limited number of free places to children and young people who live on Galley Hill or Fullers Slade or who are from local low-income families – see the website link below for further details..

Sessions are run by Terrie Howey, on behalf of Red Phoenix Storytelling & Productions, in partnership with York House Centre.
