Our Saturday relaxed drama club is a drama class for children from the age of 5 to 18 years. Classes are designed for children who might enjoy more support to learn theatre skills and build confidence. Children work in smaller groups than our weekday drama classes, and in a more relaxed environment. There is no pressure on children and our experienced practitioners will gently encourage your child to join in fun drama games. Classes suit any child, including those with anxiety and SEND.
