Rehearsals & Casting

dramacube casting

Weekly rehearsals for Beauty & The Beast JR are led by our professional Musical Theatre team in Hampton Hill, Teddington, Twickenham & Walton on Thames.

Our A/B cast structure means we can offer more parts to more children. Everyone will perform in two full shows – once as a named character and again in the all important ensemble.

Learning both parts helps builds confidence, cast camaraderie and ensures every child is always involved in rehearsing songs, scenes and routines at every session.

Weeks 1-3: Workshops & Auditions

Our Musical Theatre team will help young performers explore and learn the story, characters, songs and routines in our workshop auditions. Young performers are asked to list the three parts they’d like to audition for and one part they definitely don’t want to play.

Week 4: Casting Announced

The Director will aim to cast every child in a role they’d like to play and that stretches their development. Everyone will have lines, songs and routines to learn for the show. We start rehearsals with our BIG opening number so the whole cast are involved and working together from the start.

Week 4 to showtime! The cast will come together for 2.5 hours per week, two 3-hour weekend rehearsals and a full dress rehearsal (on stage) culminating in 2 full scale performances at Hampton Hill Theatre.

Cast sizes vary depending on the number of roles available and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis so don’t miss out – enrol today! (see full terms & conditions).

Disney’s Beauty & The Beast Jr

Dramacube are delighted to present Disney’s Beauty & The Beast  Jr officially licenced from Musical Theatre International.

Based on the original Broadway production and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

With many fun parts – including quirky castle household objects – this “tale as old as time” is an enchanting musical for everyone.

“What have you done to my son? Our shy, quiet introverted boy comes out head held high, full of joy, energy and confidence” Amy

Drama accelerates the social and educational development of children. Auditioning for a part and performing on stage, builds resilience and confidence. Friendships and teamwork are nurtured through the process of supporting each other. Role play inspires creativity, empathy and the skill of resolving conflict. These experiences run through every Dramacube rehearsal, production and workshop as we share with children the magic of the performing arts through acting, singing and dancing..
