The Co-op Juniors have launched an appeal fund which aims to raise £50,000 by the end of the year.

Inspiring and training students in dance, music and drama has been our mission for over 75 years. We have alumni working in major ballet and entertainment companies across the world. With all stage productions paused, we have to continue our creative work with almost 400 students.

The new Appeal Fund will secure the future of the Co-op Juniors Theatre Company and Academy, and its important role for Suffolk’s young people and the arts.

Join our Theatre Academy

Our Theatre Academy is a place for embracing creativity, learning new skills and nurturing talent. Open to all, the Theatre Academy’s timetable of classes across all areas of performing arts provides the training ground for many of the recruits into the Theatre Company. Contact us to arrange a free trial session.

Explore our wardrobe

Filled with thousands of costumes, the Co-op Juniors Wardrobe is a vast treasure trove. We can costume shows as diverse as Cats and Peter Pan, kit out whole theatre companies for a hoe-down, naval extravaganza or Victorian knees-up, and create well-known characters to perfection!
