We are particularly proud of our After School Club projects where we have partnered with a local school and the brilliant local children’s charity Jigsaw4u to offer a group of Years 4-6 a two term project culminating in a final performance for parents and carers.
In 2019 the club focussed on Die Fledermaus and took place at Cranmer Primary School, Merton and St John Bosco College, Wandsworth funded by the Wimbledon Foundation, while our 2022 club took place at Links Primary, Merton focussing on Carmen and funded by the Wimbledon Foundation and Three Monkies Trust.
These groups learnt about opera including our re-imagined version for contemporary London life, using this piece as a starting point to create, write and devise their own new production working towards a final performance for friends, family and the professional team in the summer. The group met weekly in term time to develop their singing and acting skills, focus, confidence and listening skills, working as a team and working individually, creative thinking and most importantly, to have lots of fun!!
