TRIBE: Alternative Stage School

Are you a master of making up stories, inventing alternative universes or pretending to be somebody you're not?

Do you love playing, singing, acting, movement and music? Do you have a ridiculously creative and energetic spirit, or do you wish you had the confidence to share your imagination with the world?


We are all about working together to build confidence, empower ourselves and support each other to do amazing things in these difficult times. Together we will turn our own songs and stories into immersive and imaginative performance adventures in our living room!

For ages 6-12 and families.

What you need: Yourself and a world of imagination!

Kate Mellors is a very experienced voice coach and creative arts facilitator who has worked with individuals, schools, community choirs and vulnerable groups for almost 15 years. She trained at Leeds College of Music, is part of the Bearface Theatre interactive storytelling team, and sings professionally with various bands. She has seen the incredible growth that being creative as part of a team can bring to people’s lives and is determined to have a good giggle with you all while providing a safe space to push yourselves to do amazing, beautiful and surprising things.

Lucy Mellors is a professional opera singer and actor who loves cats, biscuits and rolling down hills. Trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, with a master’s in advanced Opera Performance, Lucy now spends her time working with choirs, drama groups and opera companies around the country, performing and creating all sorts of stories, and encouraging silliness wherever she goes.

Yes, Kate and Lucy are sisters. And yes, they have been making up ‘shows’ together ever since they can remember...

Class access information

This class will run live each week via Zoom, an online streaming website. Zoom is an online platform which allows you to talk live to your tutor and classmates via a video or audio call. This class is designed to be progressive, with sessions each week following on from the previous week, helping to build your experience over the course of the class. Your booking is for all six sessions unless you book per session. As this class is live, you will need to be available at the time specified to participate.

To access your class you will be sent a link to a Zoom meeting on the day of each session that you have booked. You will also need access to a device with an internet connection and speakers– a computer, laptop, phone or tablet should do the job. If you would like to be able to talk with your tutor via audio your device will also need a microphone. If you would like to speak with your tutor via video your device will also need a camera.

Prior to the start date of your class our team will be in touch via email. We will confirm the email address you have used to create your Zoom account so we can add you to the class. We will also send you detailed instructions via email to help you log into your online class. We will have a member of our team on standby for the first two week of class to assist you with any issues you may have accessing your class.
