September 2021 – a note from Jacquie

As many of you know, from September 2021 I will not be teaching the group classes. I’ve absolutely loved teaching the children over the years, they’ve been an inspiration and a pleasure to teach. I now feel it’s time to pass the classes to another teacher, and I’m thrilled to announce that Sarah Brindley will be taking over as teacher for all drama groups from September. Sarah is a professional and very experienced drama teacher, and I know the childern will love her classes. I will be there for the first few weeks of term as well, so see you all at class. I’d like to thank both parents and students for their commitment and support over the years. It’s been an absolute pleasure.

Established in 1999, the aim of the weekly drama groups is to develop children’s knowledge of drama and performance skills – mainly acting – also incorporating mime and musical theatre (depending on the term’s theme). Also, through drama, to develop the communication, confidence, and teamwork skills essential to their future careers. The emphasis is on fun!

Each term is themed and culminates in a performance or class demonstration, to which parents and friends are invited. Drama groups take place on Tuesdays or Wednesdays (depending on the age of the child). There is one performance a year at a professional theatre – usually, this is at Hampton Hill Theatre (there is a small admittance charge for these of about £7 – £8 to cover the extra costs).

From September, as always, there will be a maximum of 15 in all groups.

For location and class times see side page. One free trial class is offered to interested students, subject to availability. Please contact Jacquie for details.
