We are all very excited to start the new 2016/17 year at The JPA Academy.

A huge CONGRATULATIONS to all our students who produced an exceptional show this summer at The Space in Sevenoaks. The standard was so impressive, and every number was fantastic. A special well done goes to the Walthamstow Hall Sevenoaks JPA and the Maidstone JPA for excellent work in their first Summer show at The JPA.

We also had a brilliant Summer School this year with special guest teachers Ali James,  Robin Weaver and Sean Gilder. Students were lucky enough to learn from one of the country’s leading comedy and improvisation performers (before she flew to the Edinburgh Fringe) and two of the country’s best screen actors (who had everyone’s attention every second of the three days!) The JPA Summer School put on a performance of monologues, scenes, Shakespeare, sections of Little Shop of Horrors, and even an impromptu Adele song!

We are also delighted to welcome the latest JPA baby, Finley Couchman who is super cute. Clare will be covered by our brilliant Nicole while she is on maternity leave. So, lots of love to Clare.

We are really looking forward to starting again with some new faces in each group.
