The Quay offers a number of outreach programmes to encourage young people in the community to get involved in their local theatre. Quay Comets is a weekly, term time drama course aimed at children aged 6-10, running on Mondays after school (5.30-7.00). Over ten weeks children will take part in a variety of drama games, activities and scenarios with the goal of building confidence, working as a team alongside children of a similar age, and fostering a love of performing...while of course having lots of fun along the way!
In the Autumn and Spring term, the course will culminate in a short performance to parents on the Quay stage, an enriching experience that allows the children to discover for themselves what it is like to perform in a working theatre.
Membership forms are available from the Quay box office and can be returned in person or by post. Please note that places are limited for this popular course, so book early to avoid disappointment. The course co-ordinator is Tom Eddington.
Courses are just £40.00
