Developing confidence and character through dramatic creation and performance.

Jemms is a performance based company that encourages the creative growth of its students by providing a platform for children aged between eight and eighteen to perform in front of an audience. We strive to run our classes in a professional yet friendly manner, and we pride ourselves on the high standards that we set for all of our productions. Currently in our sixteenth year, Jemms has seen hundreds of youngsters take centre stage over the years, not only developing their stage-craft skills, but enabling our students to flourish personally too. We believe that performance brings people together, therefore we see ourselves as much more than a performance company, and more as a huge family where everyone is highly valued and allowed to flourish and grow creatively.

We offer classes to two age groups: Junior Jemms (school years 5 to 8) and Senior Jemms (school years 9 to 13)giving each group opportunities to perform in several productions per year.

Are you interested in musical theatre?... Do you want to develop skills in singing, dancing and acting?... Are you interested in the process of staging a performance?
We rehearse every Tuesday evening during term time at Wylam Institute. We are excited to welcome new members of all ages and would love you to come and join us. Please get in touch by visiting the 'Contact' page or email info@jemms-drama.co.uk
