StageWorks is the theatre workshop that helps you develop your performing skills, whether you’re into acting, singing, dancing or all three. Our Saturday morning sessions are great fun and you’ll make loads of new friends along the way. And if you’re new to the wonderful world of theatre – you’re in for a treat. The bug will bite and you’ll never be the same again. What are you waiting for?

For ages 7-10 and 11 plus, whatever your ability or experience.

As part of the StageWorks family you’ll have a lot of fun working with everyone to create something special. You’ll learn about singing, dancing and acting (in groups, usually, but you can have one-to-one help too, if you like) as well as trying your hand at backstage crafts sometimes.

You don’t need to know anything about stage or performance work before you join. However, to get the most out of every session you will need lots of energy, stamina, enthusiasm and the ability to concentrate.

StageWorks was set up in 2003, to introduce young people just like you to the delights of musical theatre. We are happy to welcome students from across the London Borough of Hillingdon and further afield, for our regular Saturday sessions and for our annual Summer School too. At StageWorks, we want you to feel confident enough to try new things, develop new skills and have a lot of fun, supported by your friends and helped by experienced instructors and ROS volunteers who love being on or around the stage.

Important info for those who pay the bills and get you to the sessions; ROS StageWorks meets on Saturday mornings during term time, including half term dates, at Haydon School, Wiltshire Lane, Pinner. The junior group meets from 9.15 am to 10.45 am; the senior group from 11.15am to 12.45pm. Each term runs for a period of 11 weeks at a cost of £75, payable per term in advance.

We operate an equal opportunity policy and consider all applications, dependent on availability of places; previous experience or known skills are not essential. ROS StageWorks is a registered activity of Ruislip Operatic Society.

Activities
  • Acting
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Performing
  • Craft

Acting

Students are introduced to the art of acting through a variety of fun activities, including improvisation and the rehearsal of short scenes from well-loved shows.

Senior students often work on putting together dramatic scenes they’ve written themselves.

  • gallery

Singing

Students learn to sing out confidently – in large and small groups – and have the opportunity to sing solo if they wish.

  • gallery

Dancing

Dancing is a key element of performance, encouraging movement, building strength and helping to boost confidence.

  • gallery

Performing

Performance is about singing, acting and dancing with confidence, a vital attribute in all aspects of life, not just on stage.

  • gallery

Craft

It takes a lot of work to stage any production – a huge team effort. We run occasional craft sessions, where students make props or items of scenery for the end of term showcase production. It’s a chance to see some of the things that happen behind the scenes to support the performers on stage.
