Tiny Roots

RTS Theatre is predominately a drama group that focuses on building confidence, self esteem and most of all having a fun time whilst performing. The group meets once a week and explores a genre of theatre tasks such as comedy, serious, silent drama and focus work to name a few. Whilst exploring these genres each week the group builds skills that help our young people, not only in the world of the arts, but gives them skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. This is a group where knowledge and skills are passed on through the groups from our older group members. They are the ones who remember what it feels like on your first night of performing and support each other remarkably on their journey through the groups. Each year we perform our annual Christmas show at King James I Academy which consists of members from Roots Drama and Lil Roots, we often perform a dance show in the summer term, showing what we have been developing over the last year. Overall it is a outstanding group of people who come together to perform and create memories.
