TAG meets one Saturday per month from 10am – 1pm. Each month we explore a different aspect of theatre such as improvisation, scene work, directing, voice, mime, sword fighting and more.
TAG is not just about acting. We pride ourselves in creating a supportive atmosphere where the students can be themselves, to create, develop, follow their passion and become a cohesive unit whereby, as is often the case in life, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
At the beginning of 2015 we staged ‘James and Giant Peach’ and won a variety of awards: Adjudicators’ Certificates for STRONG YOUTH PERFORMANCE IN A LEADING ROLE, STRONG COMEDIC DUO and the AILSA TRAVERS AWARD FOR BEST COSTUMED PRODUCTION. The PRESIDENT’S ENCOURAGEMENT AWARD recipient was Katie Toner for her passion for TAG and direction of James and the Giant Peach. It was with great pleasure, that we presented the 2016 Garrick one acts, directed by two of TAG’s older students, Jordan Tabb and Caitlyn Roberts who put their hearts and souls into these productions, “The Snow Queen” and “Dreamjobs”, overcoming all the trials and tribulations of being a director! Their creativity and dedication was a testament to them and made us very proud. These were entered into the annual Youth fest and won several commendations and Caitlyn returned in 2017 to direct “Game Of Tiaras” a cross between King Lear and Game Of Thrones with fairytale characters.
We strongly encourage not only the students become a part of the theatre as whole, on stage and off, but also the parents. TAG membership costs $20 per calendar year
