KYT's Musical Theatre Groups
KYMT is an exciting strand of the youth theatre which appeals to anyone with a love of musicals! Our very popular Summer Schools prove that we have so much talent in this discipline, which we now harness and develop in weekly sessions throughout the year.
There are now THREE workshops on a Saturday:
Session 1 (Seniors) 10.45 -12.15
Session 2 (Juniors) 12.45 - 14.15
Session 3 (LAMDA) 14:30-16:00
Sessions focus on the vocals, staging and choreography of abridged versions of popular musicals such as Legally Blonde, Miss Saigon, Little Shop of Horrors, Bugsy Malone, Mary Poppins, Wicked, Rent, Jersey Boys, Billy Elliot, Grease, Matilda, Stomp, Chicago and many more!
These abridged versions are then showcased to an invited audience in the Summer Term. In the Autumn term KYMT are heavily involved in the Kindred pantomime which is performed in December.
There are opportunities for both group and solo performances throughout KYMT .These fab sessions are led by our experienced team of Lisa Collings, Steve Hession and Elizabeth Watts.
KYMT LAMDA OPTION
Sessions are mixed age but are grouped according to ability to prepare for 2 x yearly optional examinations (extra fees attached). The same skills will be covered as in our normal KYMT sessions but with a focus on an examination rather than just performance based.
Group and Duo Musical Theatre exams encourage young people to develop practical team-working skills. The ability to sing as a chorus and/or in harmony demands that everybody listen to every other person in the group and work with them to produce a performance that is in tune and in time.
LAMDA sessions are great because:
they help build confidence
they help prepare for drama school
they can replace or supplement GCSE or A Levels
LAMDA Exams gain UCAS points
they help improve presentation skills
