Children from Andover and surrounding villages took part in a ‘Matilda the Musical Workshop’ this summer holiday at Wildhern Village Hall directed by David Phaure, Sonnets Theatre Arts School.
It was a fantastic week and the children aged from 5 – 12 put in so much hard work, ending in a production for their parents at the end of the week.
Nicki McCarney a parent said “Catie thoroughly enjoyed it and has not stopped singing the songs from Matilda since it finished. I thought the performances were excellent and the children were brilliant.”
Sonnets Theatre Arts School was created to help children build confidence and life skills and fill the gap in performing arts at primary schools, it has grown from strength to strength and now offers LAMDA Acting exam classes to children who want to progress, which also links closely to the English curriculum at school. David Phaure also facilitates Shakespeare workshops in schools and is LAMDA coach at Farleigh Preparatory School and Hampshire Collegiate School.
Sonnets Theatre Arts School has been running drama, singing and dance classes in Andover since 2003. Free taster sessions and LAMDA class auditions for 4-14 year olds will be available in Andover throughout September.
