As most of my readers are aware I love the theatre! I am a great believer in allowing children to express themselves through the performing arts.
I was always encouraged to express myself growing up though music and drama. As a child I was shy, I did not have a large social circle and most would say I was a bit of a loner in school.
When I took to the stage my shyness and lack of confidence would disappear, I felt that I was in control and I actually enjoyed playing the role of someone else. Performing was a big part of my life.
Given my own experiences of music and drama I really do feel that the performing arts can have a positive effect on a child’s development and it can help with confidence.
I have been reviewing performances and following Kinetic Theatre Arts for a long time. Kinetic Theatre Arts was founded in 2013 by Director, Choreographer & Teacher Kris Crowley.
Kris, with great knowledge and creativity, created a drama school with a difference.
Kinetic helps by equipping performers with the skills and experiences needed to enter the performing arts industry with the ethos of training whilst performing.
A vast range of performance opportunities enables performers to put into practice a wide range of skills whilst nurturing their confidence, stage awareness and ability.
Kinetic Theatre Arts is affordable and assessable to everyone.
The latest performance was Footloose performed at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The sell out lively adolescent-oriented musical was outstanding! The performance followed a city kid as he attempts to adapt to life in an ultra-conservative backwater Midwestern town.
We followed the story as Ren (played by the very talented Jack Meek) ends up leading the repressed teenagers into a rebellion against the town fathers, who have outlawed rock & roll and dancing.
We were taken on a rock & roll journey of great music and fantastic dancing. The young performers really captivated their audience with great acting and singing.
The very talented Footloose cast was made up of Georgia Tonge in the role of Ariel, Georgia Miller as Russey, Jack Meek as Ren, Gwen James as Vi, Jordanna Portelli as Ethel, Izzy Bromilow as Wendy Jo and Jack Davies as Reverend Shaw.
We all left the show feeling happy and energetic whilst singing away to some of the catchy tunes of the night.
What’s next for Kinetic Theatre Arts?
Auditions for ‘Jekyll & Hyde’
The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.
An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man
Auditions take place Wednesday, 10 January 2018 at 17:00–20:00
