Throughout the year we do regular performances for the students to take part in. We do a variety of performance types, students have the chance to take part in cabaret, plays, musicals, revues, variety and annual showcases. We’re always expanding what performances we do throughout the year, as we wish to give all members the live performance experience. Students also get the chance to perform in a professional setting and alongside working professionals.

We love performing a range of different plays at Nine Lives, from modern drama to Shakespeare. We try to put on at least one play per year which students have the option to audition for if they would like to be involved. In the past we have performed the play Chatroom and looking forward we’re hoping to perform both classic and contemporary plays this year.

Musicals are at the center of everything we do, and we have plans for our performance schedule in the coming years. We know that there are a wealth of musicals we would love to perform with the company, and this is definitely something to keep your eyes peeled for.

Nine Lives Live

This is our annual showcase performance which takes place at the end of ever school year. We spend the majority of the year preparing our pieces for this show. It’s a great evening filled with dance, Acting, comedy, musical theatre, songs and so much more. The students get to perform for their family and friends and show them just what they’ve been learning through the year at Nine Lives.
