What Our Stage Right INT Acting Class Can Do For Your Pre-Teen

Develop self confidence

Theatre is an empowering experience for eleven and twelve year olds as they begin to develop their own unique identities. Theatre develops social and cognitive skills which gives kids a leg up for school and in social interactions. The active use of words in scripts or improvizational exercises makes a child more confident in different social and educational situations. The ability to communicate effectively and clearly is useful in all sorts of activities, studies and careers. Such ability can only strengthen a child's self-confidence.

Meet new friends

Eleven and twelve year olds are usually quite social. They readily make new friends, specifically if those friends are engaged in and like the same activities. When kids get together to create scenes they share ideas and suggestions, they work out social structures to facilitate their impromptu groups. They build friendships.

Have fun

Eleven and twelve year olds are still finding out what they like and don't like. If they are drawn to theatre they will have a lot of fun sharing ideas and entertaining each other in the acting class. Entertainment is a major source of fun for kids and to be part of the entertainment process empowers kids. They can watch television, films and you tube and pretty soon, an eleven or twelve year old is embarking on creating their own entertainment projects with their friends. The world today and in the future is craving entertainment content and we are part of that process. It is a lot of fun to see your own ideas realized on the stage.


Theatre Games

Theatre games offer children a fun way into unlocking the mysteries of acting. Theatre games offer a child a way to be in the moment and to bring their creativity to the forefront. Children will learn to think and act on their feet which goes a long way to developing social skills as well as an ability to immediately size up a situation and act on it.


Usually our scripts are written specifically for the class. Charles Robertson has won a number of awards for his writing and can tailor a script to the class where everybody gets a good-sized part. No small parts for kids in this class. We give the kids something worthwhile to work on for their final show.

Developing better reading skills

Our scripts are usually written specifically for the class based on ideas that the kids themselves have come up with. Award-winning writer Charles Robertson will then write a script specifically tailored to that class. Each child will get a sizable part to allow them to develop their acting skills. The important thing for us is to set the child up for success. The scripts usually have advanced ideas and language which challenges kids in a positive way. It helps kids to see the words as more than an unbreakable code on a page, it helps kids to actively use the words of a script to effect other actors, the play and the audience. A great way to develop your child's reading skills and confidence with words.

Better speaking skills

We work with eleven and twelve year olds to enhance their speaking skills, training them to speak more effectively and to stand out on the stage. Part of speaking better involves self-confidence. Your child can intellectually know what to do to speak clearly, but if they don't have the self-confidence, the emotional strength to do that, they won't. Better speaking skills will help in any educational pursuits or future career paths your child endeavours to follow.
