Frequently asked questions...
When and where do PODyS rehearse?
PODyS rehearse every Wednesday after school hours in Glyndwr Community Centre, Glyndwr Road, Penarth. PODyS members will occasionally be called to a Sunday rehearsal in the last few weeks before a show. Times may vary.
Can parents stay to rehearsals?
No, we encourage our PODyS members to be as independent as possible, which includes attending class without a parent. We are a welcoming and inclusive bunch of teachers and children and love to see the children’s confidence increase every session.
Do any teachers speak Welsh?
Yes, 2 PODyS teachers speak Welsh and are happy to communicate with children and adults in Welsh.
Is there a minimum or maximum age for my child to attend PODyS?
We accept children from the age of 5-18, however we give PODyS members between the ages of 16-18 the choice to stay in PODyS or transition into our adult productions as part of PODS.
What are the fees?
£5 per rehearsal or £4 per rehearsal per sibling.
Can my child join straight away, or is there a waiting list?
Due to popular demand, PODYS is currently at full capacity.
We will be in touch as soon as we have a vacancy.
