Year 7 & 8 Drama Club
Monday 2nd March 2020

Drama Club returns on Thursday 5th March and will run every week up until the end of June.

It’s a great opportunity to develop your drama skills, make new friends and will help you prepare for our pantomime auditions in June. This year there is also the opportunity to appear in the Drama Club sketch written for the Creative Arts Summer Showcase.

Each session will run from 3:20pm to 4:20pm every Thursday in Drama Studio 1. There will be something different each week and you can drop in and out according to which sessions sound interesting to you – there is no requirement to come every week, though of course you are welcome to do so.

The full programme of sessions is listed below and you can speak to your Drama teacher should you require further information.

We look forward to seeing you there!
