Drama is one of the few avenues that teaches real-world skills with elements of play and independent exploration, with countless other benefits supporting the personal development of students. Through our Theatrics programmes, learners are given a structured yet stimulating and creative environment to think in new and creative ways, to adapt and respond to changing stimuli, and to innovate, empowering learners with the necessary problem solving and lateral thinking skills needed to make a lasting impact in society. Regardless of their age or experience with drama and creative thinking, learners will benefit from creativity- and performance-based opportunities that will help them to build their confidence as well as refine their presentation and communication skills, which will serve them well in their future paths.
Our Theatrics programmes take the form of educational classes and camps, primarily for children and young adults, ages 9 – 17. Using a progressive curriculum that allows students to build on their self-confidence and self-esteem, it also enables them to develop acting, social and networking and creative thinking skills.

Our Theatrics programmes aim to introduce learners to the basics of speech and drama in developing their appreciation for the English Language while allowing them to exercise their creative muscles. Learners will be equipped with basic competencies in creative expression through speech and body movement and exposed to theatrical techniques, enabling them to tell stories with confidence and flair. Through seminars and opportunities for exploration, learners will be introduced to some basic principles of acting to help them understand the different aspects behind successful theatrical performances. With their new knowledge and understanding, learners will also be given the vocabulary and tools to analyse the ways in which body language and facial and oral expressions help convey emotion and meaning or create atmosphere for any given purpose. Learners will also learn how various perspectives add richness to a performance and for problem-solving beyond the classroom. They will look at perspectives in terms of how various characters within a play can interpret and understand the same thing in various ways and also perspectives in terms of understanding the psyche of each character. These exercises will build their emotional intelligence and empathy as they develop an understanding of the range of motivations and responses that characterise human experience. These social skills will allow them to more effectively understand the needs of the communities around them to identify how best to empower those around them. In their application of these skills, students will have the opportunity to flex their creative problem-solving muscles as the explore various ways of understanding the human experience and in creating their own approaches to various stimuli.
Through our Theatrics programmes, learners will gain an awareness of speech sounds and improve articulation, be able to communicate characters, poems and stories with clarity and expression, and develop their confidence and competence in interacting and working with a variety of peers, in a variety of contexts. Learners will also be given activities that will allow them to overcome their fear and inhibitions of performing or presenting their ideas before an audience in a variety of speaking situations e.g. storytelling, impromptu speaking and persuasive speaking.
