• Drama class information for Act Now Theatre School (a.n.t.s.) in Southampton — drama classes for children aged 5 to 10+.

Classes

Classes are split into three 10 week terms and culminate in a live performance each year. These plays are specifically written for each class to ensure that everyone has a part to play, there is no “chorus” in our pieces. The children play children so they can relate to the story and performance. The performance work tends to take two of the three terms, with the other term focussing on technique, improvisation, building trust and possibly most importantly, building friendships.

Numbers are strictly limited in the classes so that every child has the opportunity to progress at their own pace whilst still feeling part of a team and just as important as the child stood next to them.

Easter and Summer workshops

These workshops take place during Easter and Summer holidays and tend to be 4-5 days long (usually school hours). The children are introduced to learn, set and perform a play within the week to an audience of parents. These workshops tend to feel like “drama camps” where they get to have a lot of fun with their friends as well as working towards something.
