Welcome to CatKids
who are we?
CatKids is a small, family run, independent group with years of experience and a winning formula, catering for the desire among young people to get up on a stage and perform. Aimed at children aged between 4 and 16, the emphasis is on fun and the only qualification needed is energy and enthusiasm! With no auditions, everybody is welcome!
where are we based?
CatKids is based in Thame, Oxfordshire where lessons take place every Saturday morning, except certain school holiday dates, at the Youth Hall, Lord Williams Lower School, Towersey Road, Thame OX9 3NW. Each of our productions are staged to the public at Thame ‘Players Theatre’. There are also classes in Watlington on Wednesday. Please see the Watlington page on this website. We have been established for over three years and each year put on a Pantomime and a summer Musical at the local Theatre in Thame.
what do we do?
The children learn acting lessons, through games and scripts, basic dance routines, and songs. The weekly classes result in two productions each year, a Pantomime and a Summer Show, and these are specially written for the young cast by Mike Hurst, a well-known script writer for ‘Hurst Children’s Theatre Group’. This gives all our children the amazing and exciting opportunity to perform their productions in the environment of a real theatre.
