For the Young Performer
The Grange Players is the only amateur dramatics group in the local area that supports a dedicated junior group for young talent who are passionate about theatre.
The junior group starts every Tuesday at 6:30pm during term time at the Grange Hall in Southam, and is run by Ashley Foster, Doreen Johnson and Liza Foster.
Junior Group Performances
Like the adult group, the juniors put on one performance, plus the pantomime; our largest production each year. The Junior play is a private function for family and friends of the members.
Frequently Asked Questions
At what age can my child join the junior group?
Our juniors start from age 7 all the way up to age 16.
How much will it cost for by child to join The Grange Players?
The subs are presently £3.50 a week per child.
How does my child join The Grange Players?
You can contact us by email or by our Contact Page. Alternatively, bring your child to the group at 6:30pm on a Tuesday evening and they can join in for a free trial session.
We usually suspend new membership when we are only a 2-3 weeks before a performance until the Tuesday afterwards.
Will my child have to wear a uniform?
We do expect all juniors to dress appropriately and practically for the activities in which they will be involved; this means a black t-shirt, black leggings/tracksuit bottoms and black plimsolls/trainers. Skirts are not permitted for obvious reasons.
We do offer Grange Players branded polo shirts; please inquire if you are interested.
Does my child have to attend every rehearsal?
Yes. We expect a level of commitment from every member, especially when it comes to Sunday rehearsals as they are the most important so we do ask that your child is available. We will provide a list of important dates to help you decide if your child will be available.
Please let us know if your child is unwell and unable to attend a rehearsal
Why are Sunday rehearsals important?
These occur within 2-4 weeks of the performance and are extremely important as this is when we bring lights, sound & music and a full set together.
The Dress Rehearsal is on the final Sunday before the production and is treated as though it is a real performance; this rehearsal is the most important and we expect everyone to attend.
What if we’re on holiday or my child cannot make it to a rehearsal?
We will provide your child with a list of important dates of rehearsals and performances; all we ask is that you take these into consideration when planning your holiday.
Please let us know as soon as possible if your child is unable to attend a rehearsal.
My child has a disability; can they still join?
Of course, let us know if your child has any special requirements and what we can do to help cater for them.
Can I help out in any way?
Absolutely, we always welcome any assistance offered. We have parents who volunteer to help during the production and rehearsals by supervising the juniors, selling tickets at the door and providing refreshments during the interval; their help is invaluable. If you would like to volunteer your time, please feel free to let us know.
