Play On

Our drama classes are designed with the emerging performer in mind, whether a total beginner or an experienced entertainer, the class will be tailored to who is there and what their needs are. Experiences include games for group cohesion and fun; self-devised theatre processes; working with scripts and character development. Peformances range from informal sharing of work to peers and parents to full scale productions for Whanau, friends and the general public. These vary from group to group.
