Summer Productions… Parent Days… Shakespeare Week… and more!

Helen Walls

Nikki, Simon, Lydia and Emily have LOVED teaching our students this term!  Our primary pupils have had BEDLAM AT BEDTIME; a hilarious mime to music and Lower Primary loved being animals who were running their own zoo.  Upper Primary have been practicing their skills at a SKI RESORT, created their own TV show and have been working hard at their Verbal Dynamics: an extended poem with lots of actions and acting thrown in.  Our Youth Theatre students became extremely funny cavemen and women, have been creating News Reports and have studied and performed extracts from the play ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell.   I have managed to attend a few lessons with my baby, so I know how much fun everyone is having.
After our Parent Days this term (during the week beginning 12th March), we will be participating once again in National Shakespeare Week (week beginning 19th March).  We will be studying, and improvising around the play THE TEMPEST.  The play begins with a storm at sea and a terrifying shipwreck.   There will be lots of opportunity for dramatic embellishments there!  Students are welcome to dress up for this lesson. 
Now we are starting to plan ahead for the Summer Term.  As many of you will already know, the Summer Term is our PRODUCTION TERM!  We will be looking for students who are COMMITTED to rehearsing each week, developing strong characters to cast in our shows.  Commitment is a very important quality to have as an actor.  Our fellow cast members rely on us as we work as an ensemble team, and if each link in the chain is strong, we know that our performance will be AMAZING!

Attention Sevenoaks... we are moving!

After careful consideration we have decided to re-locate our Sevenoaks classes after half term.  

From Thursday, 3rd November 2016, our drama classes will take place in the room at: 
Alice’s Tea Shop, 114, St. John’s Hill, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN13 3PD.  
Composite Primary Class (5 - 11 years) 
4:45pm – 5:45pm
Youth Theatre Class (12 - 18 years) 
5:45pm – 6:45pm

This decision hasn’t been an easy one.  We have hired the hall at St Thomas’ Catholic Primary School for many years and the staff, teachers & pupils have always been very friendly and accommodating.  I'd like to thank everyone at the school for the many happy years we have spent there.  

Alice’s Tea Shop is a lovely little cafe located towards the bottom of St John's Hill, with a newly built classroom. There are lots of other activities and events in the cafe and I hope that re-locating our drama classes there will help to promote our programme to the local community.  As numbers grow we hope to have the opportunity to run three drama class age-groups: Lower Primary, Upper Primary and Youth Theatre.  

Parking for Alice’s Tea Shop: There is one hour’s free parking available on Wickenden Road.  Further up Wickenden Road there are no parking restrictions.  There are two nearby pay & display car parks, St James Road Car Park and St John’s Hill Car Park.  
Alice’s Tea Shop is an 8 minute walk from Bat & Ball Station.  

Our drama classes run weekly in: 
*Orpington *Hayes *Petts Wood *Chislehurst *Shortlands *Biggin Hill *Otford *Sevenoaks *Gravesend   *St James RC Primary  *Hayes Primary   *Scotts Park Primary

If you would like your child to join us for a Free Trial at one of our classes, then do please email bromley@helenogrady.co.uk or  call 01689 812336.
