Adult Drama Group

Learn new skills in acting, directing and exploring plays, in a fun and supportive environment.

What will I learn during the Summer course?

The sessions are about building confidence, wellbeing and expression through drama games and improvisations. We use drama as a way to allow our minds to be creative and free, learning from one another, with no obligation to learn lines.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who wants to have a go at drama, no previous experience is necessary.

We believe that theatre should be for everyone and always ensure our building and sessions are accessible to all participants, removing any barriers to participation.
