Ribcaged - the professional theatre company with strong Ribchester connections - is in the process of launching a new Primary School Age Youth Theatre for children aged from six to 11.

The youth theatre is being held in the Dance Studios at Moorland School, Ribblesdale Avenue, Clitheroe, BB7 2JA on Thursdays, during in term time only, from 4pm-5pm.

The first session was held last Thursday, but all interested children are still welcome to go along tomorrow, November 17 and this first session is free for all who wish to give it a try. The regular price of the class will be £6 per week, paid termly.

The class will focus on improving performance skills in areas such as improvisation, comedy, physical theatre, story telling and acting. “Through learning these skills in a positive and supportive environment the children who take part in the class should see a significant improvement in their confidence and also their communication skills, “ said course leader Richard Hoyle, adding at periodic intervals throughout the term there will be a chance for parents to go along to informal showcases where the children will be able to share what they have been working on.

There will also be a more focused and structured performance once during the school year.

If you would like to book a place for your child at tomorrow’s session please email Info@ribcaged.co.uk or contact Richard on 01200 429256.
