There are three Saturday drama classes for different age groups.
9.45 - 10.30am : 3 - 4 years
12.00 - 1.00pm: 5 - 7 years
10.30 - 12.00 noon: 8 - 11 years
These classes are for all those with an interest in drama and the performing arts, as well as those who are looking to develop confidence, make new friends and have fun. Each term covers different areas of work - improvisation, movement and voice, character development, scene devising etc. - and ends with a presentation to parents and friends to share work that has been created throughout the term. For those who are interested, there are then opportunities to go on and join one of the two youth theatres associated with the classes.
"Incredibly supportive environment for children of a wide range of age and abilities to recognise and realise their strengths - everyone is challenged to go beyond their comfort zone and it's wonderful to see them all grow and make magic together." - Parent feedback / July 2019
In line with the phased reopening of Community Centres, we aim to resume face to face sessions after the October half term break. Until then, classes will be delivered online via Zoom. Classes for 3 - 4's will focus on stories, storytelling and creative play. The 5 - 7's class will focus on puppet making and storytelling with a view to using puppets created in a live or online performance at the end of term. The 8 - 11's class will include drama games, improvisation, storytelling and scene work and build to a performance live or online at the end of term.
"I am completely blown over by the result of this online Theatre Workshop.
This shows how 'Learning at Distance' can be a successful cross-subject learning experience - connecting language, art, media, cooperation with individual interests and abilities! Superb!" - Audience feedback /
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Saturday Drama Classes for 3 - 11 year olds are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
