If you love acting then this is the class for you - mystery, magic and mayhem all await at Ashcroft's Young Company!

During the course, learn the skills for devising exploring a range of characters and situations. We will use The Grimm Fairy Tales as a stimulus to create our own original piece of drama! The possibilities for our story telling are endless. It's a chance to create, explore, use your imagination, build confidence and communication skills, as well as to meet new friends and have fun. For ages 12 -16.
