At Theatre Tricks Drama & Communications we pride ourselves in giving the opportunity to each student to shine in their own way through drama and communication skills, which will give them lifelong benefits and lasting memories.
Students are taught in a fun, creative and safe environment. As well as enjoyment there are many reasons for students to attend Theatre Tricks; children who are shy are encouraged to grow in self-confidence, those who find social interaction hard find themselves mixing without difficulty, and those with speech faults are rectified without realising it.
We take pride in seeing student’s imaginations, confidence and self-esteem develop through constant encouragement and watch them grow into confident kids, teenagers and adults!
