After School Drama

Strange Town’s after-school drama clubs in Edinburgh schools introduce drama to children who might not otherwise have access to it. We look after the set-up: all we need is a large space in your school (gym or large classroom) for the sessions.

Our after school drama clubs are run by a small team of creative professionals, who have an impressive background of developing drama skills with young people.

Previously postponed by the pandemic, we are aiming to restart our after school drama clubs in September 2022 across schools in Edinburgh. Please get in touch with for more information.

“Strange Town offers our children something that they cannot get elsewhere. Providing drama in curriculum time is very difficult given the lack of drama teachers and drama confidence amongst classroom teachers. The children we work with in our inner city area with multiple challenges, really benefit from the after-school drama. It gives them a sense of achievement and pride in what they have overcome to speak and perform confidently. The children love going.”

“The pupils think drama is fantastic.  The teachers are also seeing the benefits in class as the pupils are gaining confidence in other areas of the curriculum, too.”
