FAQ

drama club performance

What can my child expect at Creation’s Drama Club sessions?

Each term, groups will work toward putting on their own version of either a Shakespeare play or another classic work of literature. Our aim is to introduce children to interesting stories, characters and texts in an imaginative and unique way. As well as developing their performance skills we seek to inspire children to read in full the stories they are rehearsing and also research the issues, settings and historical context of the works.

We endeavour to make each session a productive and rewarding experience for all children involved. To encourage this we ask all children and adults to observe our behavioural policy, a copy of which can be found in our folders at Drama Club each week, or can be requested via email.

Older groups will spend less time playing drama games but focus on developing new acting skills and creating the final show instead. This can at times be hard work, but we find the sense of pride and achievement the children feel after an outstanding performance greatly outweighs the lack of group games.

We want to ensure that each child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential. Unfortunately finding stories with 16 equal parts is unlikely, so we ask that you support our allocation of roles and work with us to affirm that every part is important, and that often the smaller, character roles are those that steal the scene.

What happens if your child misses a session?

If you know in advance your child will be unable to attend a Drama Club session please tell one of the workshop leaders, or call or email one of our Education Team. When planning each session we try to limit the impact their absence has on the group, and ensure no big changes to their part are made that might confuse them when they return. Please be aware Drama Club membership is non-transferable and non-refundable.

What should I do if my child is unhappy?

Tell us! If for any reason your child isn’t enjoying our Drama Club please tell us immediately; even if the issue seems small. If the workshop leaders are unavailable please call our office on 01865 761393, or send an email .

When will the final show be?

The final performance will take place on the last week of the term, and you are welcome to bring friends and family. We would very much appreciate it if you could attend the performances of all age-groups as audience members arriving/leaving between shows can disturb the confidence of children on stage.

Can I park at the Drama Club venue?

Unfortunately most of our Drama Club venues don’t have parking on site.

What are the start dates for the next Drama Club term?

Each term usually the week after state schools have returned from holidays. Check our main Drama Club page for more detailed information.

How do I renew my membership for next term?

We hope your child will enjoy the drama club and be keen to continue for another term. Your Drama Club membership will automatically renew in the tenth week of term unless you contact us to advise us that you wish to cancel. We will always contact you by email the week before to give you notice of payment being taken.
