Kidz Alive!

Kidz Alive childrens' theatre group in Reading, BerkshireKidz Alive! is a Childrens’ Theatre Group based in Reading, Berkshire, with members aged from 6-15 years.

The main aim is for children to have fun, and at the same time gain in confidence. We meet in Grange United Reformed Church Hall, Southcote, on a Saturday afternoon from 1.45pm-4.30pm. We do not meet every Saturday, but dates are always booked well in advance.

The cost for membership is £25 a term. The children enjoy singing, movement, and theatre workshops.

The children work towards performing for parents, family and friends at an open afternoon, usually in June or July. There is also a Kidz! Alive party each Christmas.

Unfortunately, the Kidz Alive! group is no longer running. Thank you for all those who helped make the group such a success for many years and especially to Wendy Carne for creating and running Kidz Alive!

Kidz Alive! puppet make-up session

Kidz Alive! had their first session of the new term on Saturday 10 September.

For one of the workshops the children were shown how to do a "puppet" make-up, and then had a go themselves. They started to learn a String puppet routine, to the music, The Entertainer, with the older children as puppeteers, and the younger ones as the puppets.
