National Children's Theatre in conjuction with Intergrated Expressive Arts will offer a new Saturday morning workshop starting on 14 October 2017. We have had several enquiries for a course of this nature and have now found a teacher with the right skills.

The classes will use the elements of drama to help children to investigate and experience:

* Social intergration skills

* Self-expression (free emotional expression and appropriate emotional expression)

*    A building of self-confidence and positive self-esteem

*    A flow of imagination

DRAMA FOR KIDS WITH A DIFFERENCE

National Children's Theatre will gain be offering a Saturday Workshop Starting in January 2018

Hello Everybody

I'm Amy de Wet, I am a fully qualified Expressive Arts Counsellor and a drama teacher. I passionately believe in the power of the arts as a platform for self-exploration and self-expression.

As part of National Children's Theatre, we aim to provide a space for this platform. A space where children who need a little extra time, encouragement or assistance will truly benefit from drama classes.

This class will use the elements of drama to help children to investigate and experience:

-   Social integration skills

-    Self-expression (free emotional expression and appropriate emotional expression)

-    A building of self-confidence and positive self-esteem

-    A flow of imagination

-    Creative thinking

I know that sometimes the world can be difficult to fit into, especially for children with a difference. I have seen the arts open a space for children like this grow and find ways that they can express and communicate with the world.

I look forward to meeting each child that is interested in starting an exciting drama journey!

Amy de Wet

SHAKESPEARE CLUB

14 October - 25 November 2017

Four hundred years after his death, William Shakespeare remains the most widely read and performed playwright in the world. What makes him so admired? Some scholars believe that his writings still shape the way we see ourselves as human beings. At the Shakespeare Club we read his plays and try to allow his magic to work in us.

The Club is aimed at anyone interested in Shakespeare: those who have already read and enjoyed some of his plays as well as those who have never read a single line but are intrigued to explore. There is room for those who love to read aloud and for those who prefer to sit quietly and follow the text as it is performed.

The Club is led by Dr Rohan Quince (ex head of English at King David School and a Shakespeare expert)

The Club meet every Saturday afternoon during government school term from 14:30 to 16:30 in the Music Room.

Phone Cindy on 011 484 1584 to enroll.

Learners - If you are not sure to join the Club - you are welcome to come to the first meeting and check whether it's for you.


NATIONAL CHILDREN'S THEATRE

SHAKESPEARE CLUB

 

2018 PROGRAMME

Weekly meetings on Saturday afternoon from 2:30 - 4:30pm. Under the guidance of Dr Rohan Quince, we read plays by William Shakespeare (from comedies like A Midsummer Night's Dream to tragedies like Macbeth), getting to know the colourful characters and their extraordinary stories.

Becoming familiar with the plays helps to prepare for the SHAKESPEARE MONOLOGUE COMPETITION and NCT's SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL (15-17 May 2018) for those who would like to perform on stage, either solo or in groups.

Reading then plays also helps to prepare for the SACEE SHAKESPEARE CHALLENGE (19-20 September 2018) for those who would like to compete in a team quiz competition based mainly on the plays we read on Saturdays.

At the end of the year, we celebrate with a final production/presentation of scenes for those who would like to perform more Shakespeare on stage!

All welcome - from grade 7 to matric. Phone Cindy on 011 484 1584 to enroll or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
