GSC Saturdays

Saturday Drama Club

Every Saturday we ignite the imagination of young actors in small friendly groups. Working with professional actors and stage combat instructors, they play fun games, rehearse plays, strengthen their confidence and learn more about the exciting world of theatre.

In the last year, we've performed scenes from King Lear on The Holy Trinity Church set, performed our own version of The Wind in the Willows at Watts Gallery, a 70s themed A Midsummer Night's Dream and recorded short audio-plays with Eagle Radio (To listen, please visit our Teaching Resources Page).

Next term, we'll be devising our own Winter Tales and preparing for a special public performance...

GSC Drama Sprites

GSC Drama Sprites

Now in its fourth year, we host a series of after-school Drama Clubs in Primary Schools.

GSC Drama Sprites will teach your child to tell stories in a fun and interactive way, to create characters, to use their imaginations and to work and play as a team. Drama helps build confidence and teaches better communication skills. We will even explore a Shakespeare character or two! Above all we will have FUN!


These are currently at Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School (2 classes) and Sandfield Primary School.

To Join

For an application form simply email us and we'll send the appropriate one out to you.
