Our Christmas Drama View details

A 3-week taster course for people to learn new skills by creating and delivering a piece of Theatre based on the theme of Our Christmas, using the students’ own life-experiences. We will work both individually and in small groups. Through understanding and creating Drama, the course will develop the existing English writing/speaking skills of students with a view to boosting their self-confidence, and improving their employability. Students will develop their reading, discussing, researching, writing, analysis, speaking out loud, and acting skills. This will appeal to people who want to express themselves creatively in a wide variety of different ways – words, music, and dance.
