WHO ARE WE?
PSSA is a London based children's theatre school. Established in 2003, we have taught thousands of children and helped many go on to perform professionally in film, TV and theatre. Whether a child needs encouragement to come out of their shell or is destined for a life on stage, we believe performing arts offer children invaluable skills for life. With increasing rental rates and overheads we are acutely aware that rising class fees are making the arts less accessible for all. The PSSA Project is designed to provide every child with an affordable opportunity to access our musical theatre training and performance opportunities.
Seventy five local children aged 7-16 will participate in a five day performing arts intensive in purpose built studios. Classes will be split into three age groups to rotate around singing, acting, dancing, musical theatre, and set/costume design classes lead by our teaching team. After five busy days of learning and creating, the students will take over a local theatre to perform two professionally staged productions for friends and family, giving them a taste of life in the theatre.
PSSA Principal Amelia is a passionate believer in the many benefits of performing arts in children. It is her dream to give back to the communities they already work in and offer affordable PSSA Projects to ensure every child can access their training and performance opportunities. Her brilliant team of teachers are all talented performers with showbiz CVs and years of teaching experience, ensuring they know how to bring the best out of your child and encourage them to reach for the stars.
THE SERIOUS BIT
By raising £5000 we will be able to offer seventy five children the chance to take part in six full days of performing arts training for just £50 payable in two instalments prior to the course date. Your donations will cover the cost of studio hire, theatre hire, and the licensing cost enabling us to charge parents the minimal enrolment fee to cover our remaining costs.
We want to give back to the communities we work in and so it is our mission to offer this chance to develop confidence, feel inspired and develop their performing arts skills over the Summer.
Please help us give every little star their chance to shine.
