After School Clubs

After-school drama clubs

Harrogate Theatre’s after-school drama clubs give pupils the opportunity to work towards their own performance in the Harrogate Studio Theatre via a creative and challenging drama club.

“I thought that the whole experience was absolutely fantastic. I was truly amazed at the quality of the children’s work, all down to your superb teaching! They were ‘buzzing’ from the experience and parents were  so  proud  of  them  -  as  was  I.  I  am  still  amazed  at  how  well everyone did, particularly our youngest ones.”  Matt Shillito, headteacher at Goldsborough Primary School

Aims

  • Forge  greater  links  with  local  primary  schools  through  working with them over a longer period of time
  • Provide a worthwhile outcome for the participants
  • Enable  primary  schools  to  use  Harrogate  Theatre’s  staff  and resources

Outline

Each school works with a Harrogate Theatre practitioner over a 10-week period in a 60-minute after-school drama club. In week 11, the club is invited  to  the  theatre  to  spend  the  afternoon  touring  our  historic Victorian building and rehearsing for an evening performance for friends and family held in our versatile 60-seater Studio Theatre.

The children build a lasting relationship with Harrogate Theatre through having the opportunity to work with our skilled members of staff and use the  building  for  their  own  unique  performance,  complemented  by  full lighting  and  sound  support.  Participants  build in  confidence,  creativity, teamwork and most importantly work towards a tangible end product to be  really  proud  of  and  share  with  friends  and  family  in  a  free  (but ticketed) performance.

We work with a maximum of 4 schools per term on Monday to Thursday afternoons.

Cost: £550
