Easter Drama School
Since 2000 we have been running our popular Easter School for children aged 5 to 14. We produce a play in just a few days with a live performance to friends and family on the last day. Each year we develop a show for the experience and age of those involved. Everyone has the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the production from acting and dancing to prop and set making. This fun project is for all those with an interest in performing but no experience is necessary.
Join us for a colourful and lively week; a great way to entertain your kids during the holidays!

Previous Easter Schools
Kids VS Aliens
An elite squad of young secret agents, made up from the brightest children across the globe, are on a mission to save planet earth! Meanwhile, Dr Drax, an evil genius, has created an Alien Army and plans to destroy the world! Prepare for battle… but who will save the day? ‘Men in Black’ meets ‘Spy Kids’, with a bit of ‘James Bond’ thrown in for good measure. An exciting mash up of Alien Action Adventure, in the ultimate battle to save humankind!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
This Easter we stepped into a world of pure imagination as we created a play in just 4 days inspired by the famous book by Roald Dahl. We joined our much loved characters Charlie, Verruca, Augustus, Violet and Mike-TV on a chocolate filled adventure, with plenty of Oompa-Loompas thrown in for good measure. A golden ticket was the key for a creative journey to the magical world of Mr Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory… the most amazing, the most fantastic, the most extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen!
This Easter we journeyed back to the 1920’s and created our own version of the popular children’s musical Bugsy Malone. Our story followed the exploits of two rival gangs of bumbling, half-witted gangsters as they battled it out on the streets of New York. Bugsy, Tallulah, Blousey and all the gang danced in the coolest joint in town ‘Fat Sam’s Grand Slam’. Glitz, Glamour, Splurge Guns and the odd custard pie fight thrown in for good measure.
A Dragon’s Tale
Welcome to the magical kingdom of Zalonia where all is not as it first appears. The villagers live under the curse of a fiery dragon. The knights have tried to defeat the dragon in battle, the wizards have tried to break the curse with magic, but all have failed. Who will save the day?
The Lost Treasure Of Shangri-La
An adventure across ancient Egypt, where we discovered lost tombs, solved riddles and uncovered long lost treasure maps. Two groups of archaeologists searched for the lost treasure of Shangri-La. If you think Indiana Jones had exciting adventures, think again……. Direct Theatre Easter School 2013 was sphinx–tastic fun!
