At Carousel Players, we believe all children can benefit from drama education.

Did you know that Drama can…

  • Encourage better communication
  • Build confidence in kids
  • Inspire creativity
  • Improve their cooperation
  • Help kids make friends

We are excited to be bringing the benefits of drama to kids in Grades 1-6 across Niagara through our After School Drama Program!

What is it?

High-energy drama games and activities led by professional artist educators. Kids will get to enter imaginary worlds and explore drama techniques like improvisation, story telling, embodiment of character, clowning, and more that inspire learners to develop empathy, work collaboratively, and gain confidence.

When is it?

The program runs after school for one hour once a week for 8 weeks beginning the week of January 12th, 2020.

Where is it?

The program is run at host schools in St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, and other municipalities. See the registration menu for a list of schools we will be at and the program dates for January 2020.

What is the cost?

The program costs $60 for the whole eight weeks. Payment plans are available.

Last Year’s Parent Testimonials

“My son has had more interest in trying new things that he wasn’t willing to try previously. He has definitely become more social and has gained friends through this program.”

“Get to understand teacher’s talk, and start to communicate with others in English.”

“Both my daughters used to wait eagerly for the program day which showed they found it interesting. It helped them to learn time management as the program was just after school and I had to drive them. Both were always excited and energetic to join the session. I found them more confident and more proactive at home.”

“My son loved the program and was very excited every day that he had it.”

“When he was feeling sad he said he felt “heavy” and acted out the emotion.”

“Both my kids are really looking forward to join the future after school program.”

“He is not shy anymore and is now outgoing.”

“She looked forward to it each and every week!”
