Whilst at MEPA we believe that performance opportunities are a very important part of the training. As a result of taking part in shows, we see students grow in confidence and professionalism, bringing them that little bit closer to stardom.
Parent Performance Evenings
The students are given the opportunity to perform at the end of every term. In this performance students are encouraged to perform a song, dance and acting piece. We feel this helps students gain confidence in all subjects and enhances their performance level. It is also a great opportunity for family and friends to come and see their son/daughter/friend’s progression and development as a young performer. These evenings are held in a local theatre.
A great opportunity for year three students to perform, to agents, casting directors, choreographers and professionals within the industry, with the intention of gaining representation.
Annual Play or Pantomime
Performed locally, giving students the opportunity to work on a full performance as a group, gaining training in script work, accents and characterisations. Y
