Things are getting dramatic this summer! Join us for a fun and creative week of drama based play for ages 6-8 with theatre artists Maisie Lee and Marie Ruane.
The week will focus on theatre games and performance skills in the fantastic surroundings of The Ark's theatre. You will unleash your imagination in fun improvisation activities, build up your confidence, and make lots of new friends!
