After School Drama

Strange Town’s after-school drama clubs in Edinburgh schools introduce drama to children in a familiar space in the school.

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

“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.”
