Testimonials

We can wax lyrical about our workshops and drama clubs to you until the cows come home but we also know that you probably want to hear how amazing they are straight from the horse’s mouth.

Feedback from parents of some of Drama Club members

“Through Creation Theatre our son gained so much confidence” Drama Club parent

“She is glowing when we pick her up at the end of each drama club session so thank you for giving her that pride in herself.” Drama club parent

“Our daughters love their weekly Drama Club sessions and the Put On A Play In A Week workshops they often attend during the holidays (they particularly enjoyed the challenge of putting on a ‘musical in a week’ during one of the summer holiday sessions!).”

“The sessions are hard work but fun and rewarding, for the kids and for the leaders. Everyone pulls together and the resulting productions – always imaginative and of a high standard – are clearly very much owned by everyone in the group.” Drama club parent

“My children become part of something amazing.” Jennifer Lamboll, Drama Club parent

“We really appreciate the injection of confidence Creation Theatre Drama Club has given to our girls. Seeing them act last night it was hard to believe that a few years ago, our younger daughter couldn’t even cope with standing in the back row of a preschool nativity play.” Drama Club parent

“We have tried other well-known theatre groups and have found Creation theatre a cut above . The emphasis on classic literature really appealed to my son who loves to read. With the ability to improve on stage, Creation Theatre provides a more unique experience.” Drama Club parent

“excellent and inspiring teaching” Drama Club parent

“The Drama Club leaders are inspiring teachers and friends. They strike a magical balance of fun and hard work that brings out the best in everyone.” Drama Club parent

“Creation Drama Club has given my child enormous confidence and enjoyment.” Sonia Boue, Drama Club parent

Children and parents from our holiday workshops

“But more than that, Creation provides children with invaluable life lessons in public performing, ad libbing, letting their imaginations run riot, confidence, working together and meeting new and creative people. A massive success all round then.” The Oxford Times

“I was very impressed with the creativity of the performance and above all with the enthusiasm for Shakespeare you install in children who are still relatively young.” Parents of Workshop

“I thought the staff leading the workshops were great, very enthusiastic, full of energy and ideas. I have been really impressed by the performances, especially that they tackle plays like Shakespeare. All the children are on stage all the time and cleverly shifting roles so everyone gets something to say or a moment in the spotlight. Despite being fairly short, they really do get to grips with the plot of each story which is pretty impressive. The shows were funny and slick and really entertaining.” Parent of Workshopper

“My son has absolutely flourished at these holiday workshops – he’s been to five. Fabulous staff and the kids put on an amazing show at the end of the week. Great for building confidence, self-esteem and teamwork skills.” Parent of Workshopper

“What great entertainment this afternoon! I just wanted to say how much my daughter enjoyed the workshop this week. The leaders and their very able helpers made the week such fun; Kathryn couldn’t wait to get to the class each day. Both performances were spectacular, so full of content and such confident voices from the children, a real pleasure to watch. Thank you Creation for your inspiring, fun creative workshop!” Parent of Workshopper

“I’m full of admiration for the way the schedule was organised and the final show was prepared and choreographed.” Parent of Workshopper

“I like the way we could contribute our own ideas.” Katy Stern, student

“I found it enjoyable because it was jam-packed with activities which everyone could participate in.” Daniel Kempsford, student

“Innovative theatre with minimum stage props and costumes done with commitment to excellence.” Parent of a 15 year-old boy

School children who took part in a one day Romeo and Juliet workshop

“The end performance was good because it really stood for what the day was about: a group of people coming together to act out a play, while having fun in the process.” Dom Coneely-Hughes, student

“I really like the technique the first group used to relate the play to school life.” Grace Whittaker, student

“I must admit the idea of doing a Shakespeare day did not sound appealing at first. However, I was proven wrong.” Owen Davis, student

“It was very interesting and helpful to look at the play from another perspective” Niamh Quinn, student

“We got to understand the language Shakespeare used.” Lucy Bethany, student

“We performed the whole of Romeo and Juliet. Each section changed style and direction, …overall it was brilliant.” Sam Stothard, student
