Opportunities

We offer lots of different opportunities for those of you who love to perform!

Festivals

Each year we have the opportunity to perform in many different festivals. The following are the ones that we frequently participate in…..

* Mid Bucks – June
* Chesham – February

If any Stage Plus student’s require new festival dances or there are some additional students that would like to start participating in our festivals please come and see me!

Shows

As a school we aim to do a show with the whole school every year to 18 months, which includes everyone from the tiny tots up to adults and always has the WOW Factor!

Our Next Show is early 2016.

Shows are a great opportunity for all the students to get involved in an amazing performance showing the family, friends and the local community just what we are made of!!

In July 2014 we performed ‘Celebrate’
In March 2013 we performed ‘From Text to the Stage’
In November 2011 we performed ‘Dream like a Child
In June 2010 we went ‘Through the Ages
In November 2008 we went ‘Around the World

Our students also get the opportunity to work with Risborough Youth Theatre in their annual production such as the past shows of Honk, Bugsy Malone, Oliver, Oklahoma, The Wiz, Seussical, Annie and many more

Please take a look at the RYT webpage for more details on their annual shows.

Workshops

We run numerous workshops throughout the year where students get the opportunity to put a show together in a short space of time or work with other teachers and performers.

‘Showbiz’ is our 2 Week Summer Workshop held in August every year.

We also do a workshop before our full school show.

We try to run day workshops throughout the year for varying aspects of the Performing Arts getting in outside teachers and performers.

Panto

RYT has their own Annual Panto performed early December with Rehearsals every Sunday September-December.  There is an audition process for the lead roles but everyone gets the chance to be involved.

If you would like the opportunity to perform in Local Theatres at Panto season, we can also provide you with audition information.

Town Shows and Festivals

Every year we are offered the opportunity to perform and participate in many different town engagements. The Risborough Town Festival in the summer and the turning on of the Christmas Lights are just two of the places Stage Plus has shown our face.  We also get involved regularly with charity shows combining with other entertainers.

Fete’s

Since 2007 we have been invited each year to perform at various places including

Risborough Town Festival
Chinnor Fete
Aylesbury Relay for Life
Old Rectory Fete, Monks Risborough
CHUF Haddenham
Hughenden Manor
Hearing Dogs-Saunderton
Guarantors Lunch-High Wycombe

This is a great opportunity for students of all ages to showcase work in all areas of the Performing Arts to the general public.  We are always warmly received and its a pleasure for us to see our students lighting up and becoming more confident through performance.
