Drama With A Difference is running a holiday drama program for kids aged between 7 and 12, title “A Play In Five Days”. Children spend four days, from 11am – 3pm learning the skills of drama, and applying them to ideas for a public performance on the fifth day. This is open to friends and family, and the idea is to give audience members an insight into what the children have been learning.
The dates for this program are from 17th – 21st January 2017, and bookings are open now, with spaces strictly limited.
The purpose of the show is also to give the children something concrete to work towards. The show is very much a “work in progress”. It is not intended to be a slick performance (not even experienced actors could do this in five days!). Sometimes, the teacher may be on stage with the children, and they will be given as much support as required. The ideas will be mostly improvised, so there won’t be the pressure of learning lines.
Drama With A Difference is one of Australia’s leading, independent drama schools. With a history that spans more than twenty years, it is the launching pad of many successful Australian actors. Many of these actors began with us as children, where we were instrumental in assisting them to obtain their first professional role. Our current and past students have performed in major and guest roles in film, television and theatre.
While our school is wonderful for the budding young actor, we equally welcome kids who want to use drama for recreational purposes. Drama is great for kids’ self-esteem and confidence, and many shyer children attend our classes, with parents reporting a real difference in their child’s development. So, whether your child is outgoing, shy, or somewhere in between, Drama With A Difference is the right fit for all kinds of personalities. We teach in a non-competitive, nurturing environment; it is our aim to create a safe space for children to access their creativity.
