About Henley Childrens Theatre - the Hurst family

HCT is a fun activity for children aged 4 to 16. The weekly classes contain a mix of singing, dancing, tap dancing and drama. There are 2 productions per year at the Kenton Theatre, Henley. The children get a real buzz from performing on a real stage, with lights, sound etc.

The classes are fun for children as it is supposed to be an enjoyable hobby and nothing like the arduous school week. The classes contain a wide variety of children from a very broad catchment around Henley on Thames. At the moment children attend from over 30 different local schools.

All children get a chance to speak on their own in front of the class each week, with personal attention to their diction and projection. All are encouraged to speak out and it is hoped that every child will have something to say on stage in the show, even if they are only 4 years old!

There is a wonderful family atmosphere, and all the children are very supportive of eachother. It provides friendships, skills and confidence.
