Kaleidoscope is a friendly children’s performing arts company with an excellent reputation. We are based in Lewes and we are proud to be chosen as the theatre company in residence at Priory School.
Kaleidoscope have been delivering high quality performing arts classes to children and young people in Lewes for over ten years. At Kaleidoscope we encourage young people to contribute their own ideas to the creative process and we aim to develop a team spirit with everyone working together collaboratively.
We offer weekly Drama and Dance classes at: Priory School, Wallands School and Lewes YMCA. We also hold regular holiday workshops and our popular Summer School.
Highlights of our recent performance of The Arabian Nights is below – DVD of the full performance can be purchased online by clicking here: Order The Arabian Nights DVD The DVD will be ready next week 26th March.
Our team of enthusiastic teachers are keen to give Kaleidoscope boys and girls the opportunity to develop their skills in drama and dance whilst enhancing their confidence and having lots of fun. All of our classes are led by experienced, specialist teachers with PGCE teaching qualifications in their subject.
Kaleidoscope children have plenty of opportunities to perform – we hold regular show cases and we perform a whole school production every two years. Our previous productions have been enthusiastically received by our audiences and we have been commended on our professional look and our inventive techniques. Our 2013 production is The Arabian Nights which we will perform at Priory School in the February half term. The production will involve over 90 local children and young people.

What Kaleidoscope children and young people say about our classes:
”I joined Kaleidoscope when I was five and have now been a member for seven years. I really enjoy drama and dance because I have great fun and I have improved my acting and dancing skills.” GRACE (12 yrs)
”I really enjoyed doing Odyssey and watching it all come together. I loved playing Odysseus as he is quite a challenging character to play. I’ve been in Kaleidoscope since 2004 and this was my favourite part.” LUKE (11 yrs)
”At Kaleidoscope we get to know people really well (especially when we are putting on a production.) I have enjoyed making new friends.” (ALICE (10 yrs)
