OX Magazine

Imagine this…you log online, join a video call (using Zoom) and suddenly your children are invited to go on an enchanting journey to explore a classic tale, and along the way meet fantastical creatures and incredible characters.

Creation’s new drama club online enables youngsters to escape into a world of storytelling and creativity, led by Creation's fantastic team of professional actors. Drama clubbers interact with each other (virtually) whilst taking part in voice warm ups, limbering up sessions before exploring a classic story each week. It is a 12-week course for ages 5-10 (who are called Sprites) and ages 11-16 (who are called Mechanicals). Special packages are sent out in the post regularly to keep the magic alive long after screen time is over.

Creation Theatre are well known for creating amazing stories in unusual places, from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, played in Osney Mead Industrial Estate, Oxford and Don Quixote in The Covered Market, Oxford. In the current circumstances, it is a natural step for Creation to entertain audiences from the comfort of their own home.

“We’ve been running drama clubs for over 12 years and we’re now bringing drama workshops into people’s living rooms, virtually. We have amazing actors who are filming from home and can connect with families and importantly enable children to see and interact with fellow drama clubbers.” says Lucy Askew, Chief Executive and Creative Producer.

The inspiring drama club online focuses on developing those all-important storytelling and literacy skills, as well as bringing fun new ways for families to engage with classic stories. Individuals who join will be playing a key part in ensuring Creation Theatre comes out the other side to continue creating amazing stories in unusual places for everyone to enjoy together in the future.

Drama Club Online includes:

● 60-minute online workshops from incredibly talented and vibrant professional actors. The highly engaging workshops focus on a different story each week and feature imaginative games and fun activities to explore stories, themes and characters. The workshops include a live video call.

● Meet the actors, go behind the scenes (all virtually), hear how actors transform themselves and learn how Creation Theatre brings stories to life and adapts them to create amazing theatre experiences.

● Special deliveries - physical resources will include themed storytelling activities, games and challenges delivered through the postal service. Get crafty and creative!
