ACT One is an amateur musical theatre group based in Shepshed, near Loughborough, Leicestershire. We are an independent youth theatre, catering for local young people and their interest in musical theatre.
We rehearse every Friday night at Christchurch Methodist Church in Shepshed, and perform two productions a year at Hind Leys College Theatre, Shepshed. A major musical in February, and a staged concert in June/July.
We are always looking for new talent, but unfortunately we need to limit the size of the group. In order to do this we ask every potential member to audition to join us. If you are interested in joining us and are in school years 6-13 (that\’s roughly 10 -18 years old!) then please contact us for the details of or next audition.
As well as providing the opportunity to perform on stage, Act one inspires and builds confidence not only on stage, but also in life itself. In fact we already have several ex-members attending performing arts colleges and indeed some of them have also entered the profession. Many of our members have also gone on to perform with a host of local adult groups.
We are a close group, we make every effort to support each other and make every rehearsal a fun experience. We have 2 cast representatives, to help bring ideas from the cast to the committee. These are currently Becky Bakewell & Christian Darnell.
Please note that all our trustees and leaders have been CRB-checked with regard to their involvement with children.
Join Us...

BrightLights

Loughborough

 

BrightLights Theatre School opened in Loughborough in 2011, and provides quality, affordable performing arts training for young people. The school is run by Nick Sutcliffe, originally from Loughborough, and a graduate of Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London. He has 17 years experience as a professional actor, director and choreographer in the West End, major regional theatres, touring productions, TV and commercials. Nick also teaches and delivers workshops across the UK.
BrightLights runs every Saturday with both morning and afternoon sessions at Gorse Covert Community Centre in Maxwell Drive, Loughborough. The school is very much connected to the industry with regular guest teachers from London's West End, TV and Film. Guests so far have included cast members from “Wicked”, “Billy Elliott”, “Mamma Mia”, “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Spamalot” and “Coronation Street”. We are also in regular contact with several Casting Directors – students have auditioned for the national tour of “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”, local pantomimes, and a BBC Film adaptation of "Swallows and Amazons".
Although we can not guarantee that any of these people will whisk one of our students off to Hollywood(!!!), what it does mean is that our students are receiving top notch tuition from industry professionals who really are at the top of their game. As far as we are aware no other school in the area offers such strong industry links.
BrightLights mirrors the term dates for local schools, without breaking for half term.
All BrightLights staff and volunteers are DBS checked, and all students are covered by insurance while at the school.
For more information, or to sign up for our trial sessions please email info@brightlightstheatreschool.com.
Bright Young Things (4-6 Years)
Bright Young Things is our shorter, 90 minutes fun session for younger children. It is designed to give 4-6 year olds an insight into the exciting world of drama, singing and dance. ?Each group is limited to just 10 children to give every one of them their chance to shine!
Our Bright Young Things also perform twice a year. They join our main school for the Christmas Concert, and perform their own end of year show at Gorse Covert Community Centre.
Due to time restrictions and suitability of workshops the industry professionals do not take workshops with our Bright Young Things, but these are some of the things they can look forward to if they decide to join the Main School when the time is right for them. Obviously if we are approached by a Casting Director looking for younger children, with your permission we would help them to audition for professional work should the opportunity arise.
Main School (6-18 Years)
Our main school is for students aged 6 to 18.? Here students are arranged into groups by age and every week have 1 hour each of drama, singing and dance lessons. They not only learn to act, sing and dance, but at the same time their self confidence grows, they learn to work as a team, to use and stretch their imagination, to speak clearly and confidently, and so much more!
Our main school students perform at least twice a year – once in our Christmas Concert, and also in a fully staged musical at the end of each academic year. Previous shows include “The Wiz” and “Moby Dick – The Musical!” both at our local professional theatre Loughborough Town Hall. Our third production is the family favourite “Annie”, at Loughborough Town Hall on Sunday 29th of June at 2pm and 6pm. Tickets for “Annie” are now on sale – please email tickets@brightlightstheatreschool.com to book.

Cotesbach Educational Trust (CET), a registered charity established in 2009, hosts and provides learning opportunities focusing on Heritage, Environment, and the Arts. We have access to a unique family archive dating back over 400 years, which, thanks to an extensive cataloguing process, we can now share with the wider community.

We have a 50 year lease on the buildings and archives from the Cotesbach Family Trust and our site comprises a restored Georgian Grade II listed Schoolhouse, toilets within the Victorian milking parlour, archive storage inside the Victorian coach house and a new café/teaching space constructed in oak and glass.
Our Objectives
• To promote for the benefit of the public the preservation, protection and improvement of an 18th century, listed Schoolhouse and two adjacent buildings in the grounds of the Cotesbach Estate by creating an educational resource centre.
• To advance the education of the public, and young people in particular, in the subjects of heritage relating to the environment, our social history and the arts and the many areas which link these subjects.
Our Outputs
• Delivering school and community group visit days and activities
• Advancing and providing learning opportunities for the wider community through access to the family history archive
• Hosting heritage and Archive open days
• Development of an alternative curriculum programme for young people excluded from school.
