EXPERIENCES AT STAGEWORKS
TV & FILM
All pupils take part in our TV & Film terms. In these terms children will create, direct and film their own mini movies, presenting clips or music videos with a professional film company.
PROFESSIONAL WEST END WORKSHOPS
Regularly at Stageworks we have professional performers from the West End come into our academy and teach a workshop to all of our main school pupils (occasionally minis school depending on theme of workshop).We have previously had performers from The Lion King, Seusical The Musical, Legally Blonde, Dirty Dancing and In the Heights. These are amazing and children thrive from the experience - especially the Q&A time with the performers.
SHOWS AND PERFORMANCES
UCAS points rewarded
Each year at Stageworks we hold an annual show and also a showcase of the pupils exam work. In our annual show all main school children will get the opportunity to audition for the roles available in the performance, this is to encourage them to audition in a safe and fun environment to build their confidence and stage presence. Alternatively in our exam shows each group from our minis (yellow & red) & main school (Juniors, Inters & Seniors) will perform their different shows. We choose to perform the pupils exam material to give them another experience of performing with an audience and also to give them the confidence for their exams
EXAMS WITH PERFORMANCE ARTS AWARDS
Every year at Stageworks we have exams with Performing Arts Awards. The children get to work with their set classes for these performances enabling every child to have a lead role.
Our previous exam results we have always received 100% pass rate from all children including mini school.
The Awards at higher levels help children to build UCAS points they can use towards university applications.
Pupils at Stageworks are encouraged to apply for external opportunities and auditions that we source. Current successes have been children performing in the touring show of 'The Nativity The Musical" 2019, 'Brassed off' at The Wolverhampton Grand Theatre 2018.
Each year we have a professional photographer come into classes to take headshots of all pupils and we create audition cards for all pupils, these can be used to apply for auditions or to keep.
We give pupils the chance to become Buddy leaders. A Buddy leader supports new pupils on their first month of classes to help them to settle inn and have an instant friend. For the Buddy this helps with confidence and leadership skills as well as pride as they get to wear a special badge!
We also offer work experience to students and support the duke of Edinburgh with the skill certification. Please speak to a coach for more information.
We encourage students during our classes to become leaders and use the skills they learn to assist other members and possibly assist within classes. This prepares them for if they want to become a permanent assistant or continue their training to teach for Stageworks.
Stageworks supports local communities and works in partnership with lichfield council's 'Get In2 It' scheme to support young people and provide fun, safe and supportive classes.
TROPHYS & MEDALS
We believe it is important for children to be regularly recognised for their achievements no matter how big or small. This is why at Stageworks we have weekly trophies or class bear that get sent home for the week to an individual.
Every year we hold a presentation evening for each class and children are awarded medal and trophies to keep. This is a highlight of our year and all children and their families look forward to it.
Recognition is important because it keeps the children focused and determined all year round. All children know that one year maybe their year for our SPIRIT TROPHY which is our biggest trophy of all. We also recognise Best Newcomer, Most Improved, Best Dancer, Best Actor , Best Vocalist.
We also are unique in that we help each student to set themselves goals and they have their own goal card. This is something we work closely with each child on achieving. There are 3 levels to our goal structure BRONZE, SILVER & GOLD.
At Stageworks we have a fabulous badge programme. This enables children to collect badges for Friendship, Singing, Dance, Acting, Commitment & Determination to name a few. This has been fantastic and gives all children something tangible to work towards and enjoy the experience of being celebrated throughout the year.
At the end of every academic year all pupils at Stageworks will be sent home with a report informing parents /guardians of their child's progress, achievements and goals throughout the year in each discipline.
