Established in 2009, Red Dot provides affordable, quality musical theatre training.
Students learn a whole host of skills within Singing, Dancing and Acting classes. These include vocal techniques, script reading, improvisation, strength, flexibility and coordination.
All classes are delivered in a fun and exciting way to engage students and encourage creativity.
Red Dot Theatre Company is based at Spital Park Pavilion in Castle Donington. Classes are on Thursday 4.30pm - 7.30pm during term time.
Students perform twice a year in the form of a showcase and a full Musical Theatre production with various other local performance opportunities along the way.
The showcase allows students to take part in a selection of scenes, songs and dance routines where they can explore various characters and musical styles.
The Musical Theatre production sees students take on all technical aspects of Singing, Acting and Dance and perform them as an integrated theatrical show.
Costume, props and scenery are all provided to give students a realistic performance experience.
We aim to bring out the best in all of our students. By building confidence, working as a team and developing communication skills, Red Dot allows students to reach their full potential both on and off stage.
By challenging and encouraging our students we allow them to develop and grow as performers. Performance pieces are selected and written with each individual student in mind, to give them the chance to truly shine.
We support students with all auditions and with any repertoire needed. Our students have gained places at performing arts colleges, performed in regional pantomimes and been awarded scholarships at local private schools.
LAMDA examinations are also available for those who wish to follow grades in Acting or Musical Theatre.
