Every year we run two public performances. Every Christmas we run a showcase where every penny raised goes to charity. We also have a full scale production in the Summer at The Space in Sevenoaks, where the students have the experience of working with professional sound and lighting designers and performing in a working theatre. These are huge fun and are a real celebration of the work of every student. We strive to challenge our students and each class work on numbers for the shows from classic musicals, pop shows and brand new musicals from Broadway and the West End. Every student excels in our productions.
The JPA Academy has close links with the Performing Arts industry. Those who want to take their passion further will be given advice and guidence leading to the chance to audition for professional work in the performing industry. JPA students have appeared in short films, adverts, television shows, and West End shows such as Matilda, Once, Billy Elliot, The Sound of Music, Kinky Boots and Les Misérables.
For any JPA student that wants to explore working in the Performing Arts industry, we work closely with Carousel Management, a children’s agency with amazing contacts. We meet with the team from Carousel Management regularly to discuss auditions and our talented students. JPA students have appeared in many adverts on television and online, short films, voiceovers, campaigns and West End shows.
