Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have moved all drama sessions online via ‘Zoom’ & ‘Skype’.

For prices and more information please e-mail us!

As the majority of parents are now home schooling, we’re offering to ‘take the reins’ for 30 mins-1 hour with a fun packed drama session starting on Monday 23rd March. These will include:
  • Usual body and vocal warm ups that everyone knows from our Saturday workshops
  • We’ll keep our vocal fitness up with exercises and tongue twisters to make sure we’re in great shape when workshops are back!
  • We’ll e-mail you monologues and speeches over so we can work on them together
  • Imagination and storytelling games and exercises (to make self-isolating a bit more bearable!)
  • Act 3’s will get self-tape auditioning and audition technique training

‘Christina really looks forward to the lessons as she finds it helps break up the day whilst offering a sense of normality. We’ve always felt your drama classes are a great way for Christina to gain confidence, and these 1-2-1 sessions have taken that to another level.’

‘Sam really looks forward to his zoom sessions with Paula every week.  They’re a welcome change to the normal routine of our days and have been a chance for us to interact in a fun way with somebody outside of the house. Paula’s been great at picking up on Sam’s mood and adjusting the sessions accordingly’

‘My children have really enjoyed having the opportunity to continue their drama lessons. They love drama anyway, but the Skype sessions have given them continuity of seeing a familiar face during lockdown, which has provided an element of normality, to an otherwise surreal experience.  So thank you!’

‘…she’s feeling more confident to tackle the scripts in the more private setting of the Zoom call….’

‘…The highlight of a lockdown week…We appreciate the focussed time to work on particular pieces. Having a session with a friend, performing a duologue works really well as they can explore character development together…’

‘… Paula is an excellent drama teacher, engaging with my son and very, very patient . Archie see’s the lesson as great fun and feels totally confident when in lesson…’
