About Shining Stars

At all of our Saturday Stars groups children are supported to progress towards their own personal goals within 5 areas: relationships, social skills, independence, confidence and mental health/wellbeing. At the end of each term children receive a star certificate to celebrate their acheivements.

At Shining Stars children express their creativity through drama. They can create and perform their own shows as well as making props, costumes and scripts.

Shining Stars is split into two sub-groups:

Scene Stars: 10am – 11am

Scene Stars is aimed at children new to drama. They will learn performance skills and build confidence expressing themselves.

Stage Stars: 11:15am – 12:15pm

Stage Stars is aimed at children who are more confident to develop their drama skills as they create and perform shows.
