The weekly adult class is about using drama as a form of personal development – a source of fun! People come from all walks of life and for a range of reasons – often forming long-lasting friendships with each other. Reasons include:

  • Social – connecting with new people.
  • Shyness – learning to be more confident.
  • Extravert personalities – do you need a place where it is OK to be extreme? Where your voice is not considered too loud? Where everyone loves a drama queen? Maybe you’ve spent your whole life being “toned down”? This is a place where you can express yourself without that kind of criticism.
  • Begin a new career – many adults transition into more intensive classes at a later stage.
  • Business – imaginative exercises help with the formation of new businesses, ways to improve existing circumstances etc.
  • Personal development.
  • Learning and observing how you come across to others.
  • Stress release – our drama classes are one of the BEST forms of stress release you will ever experience.
  • Making speeches in other areas of life – weddings, 21sts etc.
  • Learning upfront skills for work place presentations.
  • Having FUN.

Subjects

  • Improvisation: Thinking on your feet, coming up with your own ideas, working as a group.
  • Character development: You will learn the skills that actors use to create real and vivid characterisations. Experience the fun of playing your “other”, ie characters unlike yourself who possess ideas and thoughts that you think are your opposites.
  • Voice work: Use your voice in a more empowered manner.
  • Performance: This is the focus of the class, as you will be able to put into practice the skills you have been taught.

These ‘subjects’ are not taught in isolation, but are applied and taught as the basis for the rehearsals that lead to the performance.
