SAFE TO TRY
The Drama Project is above all a place where everyone who comes along can feel safe to try out new, fun self-expression. Warm-up activities play a vital part, and everyone’s contribution is valued.
Trips are occasionally arranged to a local theatre production. This may supplement a subject already explored on the Drama Project, or it may be an opportunity to see something completely different, helping to broaden the horizons of those who may have had few such opportunities in earlier life.
ONE-TO-ONE OR GROUP SESSIONS
Some people take up one-to-one opportunities to work with the drama project leader, to build up their confidence. This can lead to joining a larger group and becoming involved in performances on site for their friends at Crag House Farm, or for supporters visiting on Supporters Day. This may involve comedy sketches, reciting poetry or musical theatre, combining with the Music Project.
Being on the Drama Project often involves a lot of laughter, which can be a tremendous help in releasing emotion and lowering anxiety levels. But above all, the project enables people to grow in self-confidence, often improving a person’s ability to express themselves.
