What is Places?

Places! stands for:
Pl
ay Acting for Children in English


Places! is a drama/play-acting group for children, aged between 5 years and 14 years, expressing a desire to explore situations and characters by means of play-acting.

Drama promotes active learning
Studies show repeatedly that drama yields a greater depth of understanding as well as a marked improvement in retention. The drama student is not a passive recipient but rather an active participant and he/she engages at a much deeper and personal level than simply being 'given' the information.

The idea for Places!
The idea for a play acting group was the result of numerous requests from my children, both of whom love to perform before an audience.
The idea has developed somewhat since then...
We are currently in our eighth year and have had a lot of fun rehearsing and performing musical productions i.e.,
James and the Giant Peach, The Wind in the Willows, Strictly Panto, Looking for Mr. Bunny. The mythology presentations have been both Greek and Norse mythology, both of which we handle regularly in class.

My intention is to cotinue to provide a venue where children have the confidence to express themselves in English, a place where they feel comfortable and can grow not only in confidence but in imagination and creativity too.

Musical productions are performed each alternate year with a year of improvisation in between. Performing before an audience is part of the drama learning experience and helps build a positive, confident self-image.
Participation requires self control and discipline, both of which will serve the students well in all aspects of life.

Dates for our next musical production,
Treasure Island, are:
Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 14:30 and 18:30
Sunday, July 3, 2016 at 14:30
