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.

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

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

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.

He is not shy anymore and is now outgoing.

She looked forward to it each and every week!

What is it?

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

When is it?

The program runs after school for one hour once a week for 8 weeks.

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.

What is the cost?

The cost is $60 for the eight week program. Payment plans and financial support are available.

Can my child attend the program if it’s not at their school?

Absolutely! You can register your child for a program at any of the listed schools. Please be sure to check the program start times as different schools end at different times.

How can I bring this program to my child’s school?

We are always looking for schools who would like to host our After School Drama Program. Email our Arts Education Coordinator to learn more about how you can bring the program to your school.
