The Academy @ CAST

The Academy is the youth section of CAST and aimed at young people from 10 - 18 years of age.


Incorporating drama, dance, song and backstage production skills, the Academy was started January 2007 to provide local young people with an outlet for their creative side. It has been well received and over 200 young people have performed on our stage over the last 8 years.


The group is affiliated to NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) and a member of the NAYT (National Association of Youth Theatres)


Our sessions run weekly on Monday evenings from 6:30pm to 8.30pm and closer to productions, additional rehearsals may be scheduled as required.


Our Autumn term will start on Monday 11th September 2017, where auditions and rehearsals will begin for a full scale musical production of "Peter Pan" to be staged just before Easter 2018. Potential new members are invited for a free trial session at any point during the term (subject to places being available) prior to enrolling. 


If your child would be interested in joining The Academy please contact Steve Oakes at to register your interest. Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis, subject to successful entry interview.
