Blag Youth Theatre Rickmansworth and Chesham have a reputation for providing excellent training in both Drama and Singing. Children gain exceptional marks in their LAMDA exams from grade 1 right through to grade 8 - Gold medal. Whatever aspirations you may have for your child's future Blag with help them on that journey.
For over 21 years Richard and Lynn Beaumont have delivered drama training to children and adults following their own unique curriculum. At Blag children benefit from working with both original texts and tailor made scripts, ensuring each child reaches their full potential. Improvisation and devising is an important part of Blag's weekly classes, teaching even the very youngest to e press their creativity and stand tall and always have something to say.
Singing is taught as a completely separate subject at Blag. Which means children can choose to do either both drama and singing, or just drama or just singing. Our singers are taught to work tight harmonies and sing a wide variety of material. The highlight of Blag's year is their summer Project which originated in 1996 when Watersmeet Theatre asked them to produce a summer school for 125 students.
Since then, each year, Blag has written and produced parody musicals for local children. These unique shows give every child a speaking part and an opportunity to perform in a real theatre. Whatever your child decides to be in later life let Blag help them to begin that journey.
Our family have been involved with Blag Youth Theatre for twelve and a half years now. Our son thoroughly enjoyed all his years with them, attending drama, singing and Lamda classes, plus their amazing Summer Projects - it still always amazes me that they produce such brilliant shows in just two weeks!!...
My two daughters love going to Blag each week taking part in their singing and drama classes. They have both grown in confidence as a result and made many new friends. Blag offers a range of opportunities to sing and perform such as Watford Festival, Rickmansworth Canal festival and Blag productions at the Pump House theatre.
Going to her BLAG drama group is one of the highlights of the week for my daughter! She's always full of beans after a class and comes out chatting about what exercises they've been working on, what part she's played and what they're planning for the future.
I have three daughters who have all been Blaggers since the age of 5, enjoying their drama, Lamda and singing classes. Being part of Blag has not only given my girls acting, singing and stage skills, but taught them to be effective team members and to be confident communicators at school and beyond. They all really value the close friendships they formed as teenagers with like minded fellow Blaggers who share their love of Musicals and the theatre.
