what people say
Our Senior Drama Group produce high-quality theatre shows through using devising technique, new writing and pre-existing texts. We explore issues and themes that participants and audiences relate to. 
We also believe in creating a social space for participants to develop skills for life and make new friends. We create a welcoming, friendly and happy atmosphere in our workshops. We know participating in drama has a positive impact on mental health - we make sure everyone leaves feeling happy and valued.
"We've tried lots of different groups and this is the one that's really engaged her. She absolutely loves it."
