First Stage is the youth section of IODS Theatre Company. First Stage is not just about rehearsing and putting on shows – throughout the year children take part in workshops to learn and develop new musical theatre skills, and have an input in creative work. Our end of year show is a culmination of all the projects the children have worked on that year.
Workshops run on Monday evenings every week during term time from the Labour Club on Silent Street in Ipswich. Children in school years 1 to 6 attend 19:00 – 20:00, and young people in Year 7 or above from 20:15 – 21:15. Subs are £20 per term.
All leaders are specialists in at least one of the disciplines of musical theatre, are DBS checked and have attended Safeguarding training.
