WELCOME TO MARMALADE DRAMA

With over 5 years of teaching drama to children, we at Marmalade believe passionately that one of the greatest gifts in life is to be able to explore yourself and the world through stories and that drama is essential for a child’s human development.

In the early years, drama improves understanding of language, communication and broadens imagination. It encourages children to collaborate and to be sensitive to the needs of a group.

Each of our classes is designed and tailored to suit the particular developing needs of the specific age group. In the younger years; classes consist of games, role-play, dressing up, story telling and improvisation.  From the age of 11, our students start to work on acting skills, exploring texts as well as devising, singing, dancing and showcases.

OUR FOUNDER

OLIVIA TENQUIST

I have always been incredibly passionate about drama and the impact that it can have on a child’s life. Creativity should be at the heart of every child’s upbringing. Instead of isolating the child, drama provides a stimulating environment by encouraging collaboration and the sharing of ideas. It also evokes sensitivity and empathy towards others.

YOUTH THEATRE

This class is all about getting the children to use their imagination and building on their dramatic knowledge. The students come up with magical stories and we turn them into scripts! Who knows what they will come up with?

A STIMULATING ENVIRONMENT

We at Marmalade provide a stimulating environment where children are given the opportunity to become creative, well rounded, kind and sociable individuals.

We recognise that each child is unique and strive to build each child’s confidence and positive self-esteem, helping them to progress successfully through their school years and beyond.
