Our 9-12 age group at our Lyttelton studio acted out a whole group improvisation called Joe's All Night Cafe! We concentrated on our ad lib techniques and of course being 'dressed the character' really helped set the scene !

Week 2 of our third term

So far week 2 of our new term has been simply wonderful! 
Students from our Lower primary have come dressed up in all their winter woollies and are loving their play The Super Snowman! 
The Upper Primary pulled out all the stops as they dressed up as waitresses, bikers and truckers for their play Joe's All Night Cafe! This play only had guidelines and the students themselves had to come up with the dialogue and with the help of their teachers the story took shape!

Stage Combat Workshop

The roll....

Irene Primary students performances were spectacular

It was a cold Thursday evening but still the Drama students at our Irene Primary studio were well supported by friends and family! The Lower Primary had so much confidence as they demonstrated their speech exercises and performed poems, a mime to music and an improvisation called Storybook Adventure!
Many of our Upper Primary have been with Helen O Grady Drama Academy for many years and it showed in their wonderful performances!
