Halswell Thumbelina

Our youngest class for 5 - 7 year olds.

From the dusty desert to the depths of the ocean, let's go anywhere we want using our imagination!  Classes use myth and story, all designed to draw out children’s natural inclination to play pretend while learning the basic elements of theatre. These pretend play scenarios promote significant cognitive and social development. Children are given opportunities to display joyful self expression using physical movement, voice, props and music. A class full of superheroes, pixies and dragon.

Halswell Starfleet

An interim class for 8 - 12 year olds.

In this age group, pretend play is used as scaffolding through which more complex cognitive development can take place. Children learn how to develop and write scripts through improvising and devising. Regular performing and subsequent peer evaluation within the class time, allows vital interaction to occur within the “safe zone” of the drama environment.
