Have a special talent and flair for the dramatic arts?

SOPA Advanced

Our specialised drama, dance and vocal groups train weekly to build showcase repertoire and advanced audition skills. These students are committed to pursuing the performing arts on a more serious level, with the potential to explore further study abroad.

Students are accepted onto these groups by Audition only.

Senior Company
Established Youth Theatre Group

Senior Company offers an exciting opportunity for students who would like to extend their training and further develop their skills. Entrance is by audition only and the group meets once a week. Classes are enjoyably challenging and high-energy, and focus primarily on creating original work.

Senior Company aims to expose students to a wide range of theatre techniques and practices and regularly invites industry experts as guest tutors. We also endeavour to perform several times a year both at home and abroad.

Average Age: 13+

Junior Company
Your Stepping Stone

A stepping stone towards the Senior Company. We identify young students with special potential in the dramatic arts and encourage them to develop their full potential through a more detailed and concentrated work programme. Junior Company centres on all three disciplines: drama, singing and dance.

Auditioning students need to display strength in at least two of these areas.

Average Age: 9-12

Vocal Ensemble
Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong

SOPA is looking for 8/12 dynamic young singers to form part of our new vocal ensemble that will form a chamber-style youth consort performing various styles of music.

The ensemble will perform at events and corporate functions as well as participate in competitions and festivals abroad.

Singers should ideally read music and have strong capabilites as solo vocalists.
