What parents can expect

The TRY theatre year starts and ends simultaneously with the regular Croatian school year, but its programme is vastly different. When comparing TRY theatre to any other English class, you will immediately notice a significant difference in both the approach and the end result: at TRY, the focus is placed on acting and informal learning, as opposed to grading students and creating pressure of “performing well”. Every rehearsal is a test in itself. Students unknowingly test their confidence, creativity and understanding while participating in the exercises and engaging with each other. The process leads to the final play: have they gotten the confidence they need to speak in front of a large audience? Have they used their innate talent in English to properly deliver their lines? Have they used their creativity to the fullest to give life to their characters? These challenges would be considerable for anyone, let alone someone going through puberty or adolescence.

We are proud to say that no student has so far failed, and we don’t believe anyone ever will. Because at TRY theatre the young actors have fun, let their emotions out, create strong bonds with their fellow thespians and help and motivate each other in every single class, every single rehearsal, every time they come in early and have tea and every time they wait for the bus together. They develop and grow, one day at a time. It’s a lot more than a drama school.

The first month and a half are usually reserved for various creative exercises, getting to know one another and creating a compact team that is well connected. Toward the end of November the students start working on their play, the teachers giving them small amounts of text at a time and everyone trying on every role: we believe that is extremely important because it gives each student the opportunity to try out very different characters with very different personalities. Before the final show towards the end of the school year, every student will be given a role that fits him and vice versa.

The TRY schedule offers several possibilities for each child so families can easily adapt as it fits them best. Of course, the classes intensify before productions, meaning the students might be asked to come in more and sometimes during the weekends, for both rehearsals and costume fitting. The final play is usually performed for 3 to 4 nights with a changing cast, giving each student the opportunity to rest for one or two nights or switch his role with someone else’s. Our youngest thespians usually perform only one night.
