What is the class timetable over Easter hols please? Just trying to organise my diary ###
ACTING CLASS TONIGHT-
Tonight i will be running a mock audition for a KIDS TV presenter!! We will be focusing on typical audition activities and running it as an audition. Feedback will be given, this will be really helpful for those with Lauren’s Agency! Only Β£5 to attend tonight from 4.30-5.30. Hope to see some of you there πŸ˜€
Don't forget a prize for the best pumpkin and best costume at our fantastic party on Saturday 1 30 -3 AT Appleton πŸ‘»πŸ’€πŸ‘ΉπŸ§™β€β™€οΈ
Starting the saturday class off with a bit of Acting!!!⭐️⭐️IMPROVISATION- Really important to develop kids confidence, imagination and acting skills.... whilst also having fun! Daisy, Rosie and Ella leading their own made up scenes off the top of their heads- Everyone had a turn at this game full of laughs Xx
Does anyone have any jazz shoes size 4.5/5 I can buy of them?? X
Just a quick thought if anyone who went to Disney that isn't going to Butlins has costumes we could use could you let us know before people have to spend money, as we won't have the same sponsorship again xx
Be there for Freya in 5, traffic came to a standstill on motorway! X

Lauren Kelly Academy (formerley Little Stars Stage School) is a stage school in Warrington providing training in Musical Theatre for children ages 3-16.

We also have an active casting agency - Lauren Kelly Casting. Little Stars Stage School is based in Appleton, Warrington, Cheshire and offers performing arts training to children aged 3 to 16. Children are given the chance to earn qualifications, take part in full scale productions as well as learning new skills and gaining confidence in weekly classes.

Operating as usual

[08/09/21]   We're super excited to have heard from the lovely Ferne Strictly Musical Theatre Competition and that the comp is going ahead this year on 17th October in Manchester. If anyone wants to be entered - please get in touch and let me know what you would like to perform so I can confirm our numbers ASAP xx

[07/29/21]   Our agency is particularly busy at the moment with lots of opportunities - especially those in the age 3-6 age bracket! If anyone is interested in signing up please do drop me a message ❀️

[07/23/21]   Feeling emotional seeing all the last day at primary for our year 6’s - especially when so many have been with us since they were so tiny. You’ve all grown into amazing young people and we hope you’ve had the best week ever ❀️ we’ll see you in senior class in September!! 😱

This face says it all and I am SO proud of this little lady! @freyajs10 Freya is off to Australia later this year and we really wanted to maximise her time with us before she leaves us for the land down under. In the last 18 months she has taken Musical theatre grade 4 (distinction), Musical Theatre Grade 5 (distinction) and rock & pop vocals grade 4 (merit). When we did exams this time we decided to let her have a go at grade 6. Grade 6 is equivalent to A level standard and comes with @ucas_online points. We know it’s way beyond a 10 year old - especially the discussion element! But we let her have a go on the grounds it would probably be her last exam. Freya worked super hard and I’m delighted that she passed with 80% giving her a merit at grade 6 at age 10. I was even more impressed that she scored 19/20 for her discussion showing her understanding and maturity of complex themes and characters. Freya you blow me away & you will go far πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸ€© @trinity_music_drama #grade6 #musicaltheatre #age10 #triplethreat #onetowatch #starofthefuture #highachiever #proud #proudteacher #superstar #trinitycollegelondon

[07/17/21]   Just wanted to say an absolutely MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has been a part of this year and this term. It's been an absolute rollercoaster for all sorts of reasons and every few weeks we have faced different challenges and I don't think we've had the same children in class twice in a row πŸ˜‚ In spite of that, we've seen amazing progress from our students, incredible exam results from grade 1-8 and kids still having an absolute ball in class. I particularly feel for those parents who have been dropping their child off at the door and had no idea what they've done for the next hour or really had chance to speak to their teachers all year! We will post some videos from this term this week to hopefully give you a bit more of an insight into what they've been doing and lets all keep our fingers and toes crossed for some live performances come September. Have a wonderful summer everyone ❀❀❀❀

Team work makes the dream work! We are working on our improvisation and story telling in small groups this morning. These skills come in as key skills tasks from grade 3 upwards so we incorporate them into our younger lessons from the word go! They love these challenges and it’s amazing to see their ideas and imaginations develop 🎭 #drama #improvise #develop #imagination #training #performingarts #warrington #dramatic #laurenkellyacademy #warrington #cheshire #storytelling

Really proud of how our students have risen to the challenge of exams digitally. Even if they haven’t got an audience and they’re performing to a camera on a tripod - they’re still giving it their all. We have got 32 kids taking exams in this session across performance arts, musical theatre, vocals and speech and drama from grade 1 through to grade 8. Super proud of all your efforts πŸ’–πŸŒŸ #laurenkellyacademy #exams #trinitycollegelondon #championcentre #digitalexams

[05/22/21]   Good morning! There’s a slight change of venue this morning at Grappenhall which we weren’t aware of! We’re in the sports hall at the back rather than the old barn in the front. There’s a wedding in the barn at the front so if you could wait to be let in/ out via the preschool doors at the back that would be great.

Thank you 🌟
