The group was founded in 1995 as an off-shoot of IMOG. Formerly known as Ingatestone Musical and Operetta Youth Group (IMOYG) the name was changed to Young Expressions in 1996 following a comment made by a reviewer who suggested finding a “snappier” name.
The group is for children between the ages of 8 and 14 and we meet weekly on Sunday morning at 10.00 – 13.00 from September to November and 10.00 – 12.00 from January to June. Everyone in the group has a great time and lots of fun as we rehearse for shows with the aim of creating memorable stage performances for the people of Ingatestone and the surrounding areas.
The group is run and managed by a committee of parents who give their time to make sure this unique group and opportunity is available for our children. We bring in people to direct and produce the shows and, although we are not a drama school, our cast members learn from these people and from each other.
The whole idea of Young Expressions is for cast members to have fun and the chance to do something different, although it does help with confidence.
We are always keen to recruit new members and maintain a waiting list for anyone interested in joining. If you would like to join us, or know someone who would, please contact us using the link below. The current cast and committee look forward to welcoming you to the happy band that is Young Expressions.
