Here’s some of the feedback from people who have taken part previously:
“Drop in drama is a highlight of my week. It’s a warm, supportive atmosphere where we try out different skills and develop in confidence and performance ability. I enjoy the opportunity to take part in improvisation and work with all sorts of people” (Elizabeth)
“I love the different mix of people, it’s so inclusive and everyone has a go at everything. It feels like a family, seeing some of those who are more regular, even those who drop in and out from week to week in fact. It’s always something different which gives you a chance to learn new skills and also improve on old ones. Absolute dream for confidence building. Mel is so wonderfully calm and always leads the sessions with fantastic energy!” (T)
“We really enjoy the drop in drama sessions.. Its fun friendly and informal with no pressure. Meeting a variety of interesting and diverse people. Great content each week – particularly good for confidence building. Loved the puppet making and the improvisation sessions. Absolutely recommend to anyone.” (Martyn & Hazel)
“Drop in drama is the actual highlight of my week now! It’s great to meet different people, make new friends and have fun. Also I’m learning new skills and my confidence is growing since I started attending. I’m looking forward to getting involved in future performances too.” (Dawn)
