Drama & Musical Theatre
Something for everyone! Our drama classes start as young as 3 years old, with different age levels going up to 12 years.
Classes range from putting on full-length productions in our upstairs theatre, to back to basics and focusing on various techniques.
Didi Drama (45 minutes)
Didi Drama is part of our Petite Performer series. Digby Drama likes to go on an adventure, taking your child through stories full of fantasy and superheroes galore! By the power of imagination Digby Drama will teach your child to develop their speech, how to use eye contact, body language and the joy of storytelling using their body and their voice. Your Petite Performer’s confidence and communication will grow as they work with the group to create a universe of their own, a place where dreams really do come true!
Foundation I Drama/Musical Theatre 4-6yrs (50 min)
Each semester focuses on a new theme, from our original shows such as 'Pirates & Mermaids' or 'Fairytales & Dragons' to hit movie classics the kiddies just can't get enough of, such as 'Trolls', 'Sing', 'The Lion King' and many more. Classes are kept new, fun and exciting whilst continually stretching your child's imagination. Classes are fun-packed and fast-paced, whether it's working towards our yearly in-house productions from September-January, or our end of year Spring Recital, allowing children to show their family and friends all their hard work and achievements.
