Love Shakespeare for Schools
Short or extended workshops | After school clubs | PPA cover
At Dramakarma we offer half day, full day or other packages suited to the needs of your school. We are a team, experienced in leading drama for young people in schools, theatres and after school clubs. Our main aim is helping young people access and fall in love with Shakespeare through practical based games and activities.
- Exercises designed to improve reading fluency while accessing difficult texts;
- Opportunities for increasing and enriching vocabulary.
- Maximising pupil speech from within the drama.
- The thrill of involvement in moments of real drama.
- Drama games and exercises bringing the language, character and situations to life;
- Use of props and some costume to further enhance the experience;
- Stimulus for writing in role from experience within drama.
Tunnels – Summer Workshop! BOOK NOW!
What secrets lie beneath Frome??
An enquistive child
Who will they meet?
Where will it lead?
Brae’s family sell their house in London and move into an old property in Frome. Brae, fascinated by history, suddenly find themselves surrounded by it. But when they finds out about the tunnels that are said to lie beneath the old town like vital arteries, stretching out a lifeline to surrounding villages, they have to know more. But they cannot understand why others are reluctant to discuss it. Don’t they care? Are they hiding something? Brae plans an expedition that will take them underground into worlds they haven’t even imagined. The secrets of the tunnels are revealed, but at what cost? Some things are best left as they are…
Join us for a week’s improvisation and song, leading to a performance to parents.
COMEDY OF ERRORS
Shakespeare for Schools Festival
Separated at birth
Their lives have followed the same pattern
They end up in the same city
Not knowing each other exist!
And… there are two sets of them!
Who is who?
What is what?
Witchcraft seems to be at work
We are so excited to be entering the Shakespeare for Schools Festival this year! We are looking for anyone who loves comedy and having fun, ages 11 – 16, to join us to create this abridged version of the Comedy of Errors, which will be performed as part of the Shakespeare for Schools Festival at the beginning of November 2022!
We have started creating a few online resources whilst we are in lockdown to provide some fun filled activities whilst they are at home.
Welcome to Dramakarma. We are based in Frome and provide drama classes for kids aged 7 – 16 in and around the the town, including Trowbridge, Warminster and Bath.
We have a passion for drama and performance and through our classes we aim to provide a safe space where children can just be themsleves and set their inhibitions worries aside. Well being is at the centre of everything that we do.
We hope to inspire you by creating and exploring imaginary worlds, having fun and laughing out loud. We will create a theatre space in which everyone is welcome to share their own slant on things, sometimes the more bizarre the better. We aim to have serious fun, respect those serious moments when they come along, but remember not to take ourselves too seriously. We are dedicated towards feeling good through Drama between ourselves and in the community.
