Our Programme

Playful Spaces

Our aim is to create playful spaces for children to learn new skills, make new friends and develop their confidence. We believe that creating a playful environment is important in engaging children with a creative activity.

Developing Skills

Taking part in drama workshops from an early age can help develop communication, social and creative skills to take into everyday lives. We focus on creating spaces that help children and young people develop.

Performing Shows

We want to give our participants some of the best experiences of performing. There's nothing like that buzz before a curtain swings open. Our aim is to widen opportunities for performance throughout the year.
