Anyone know any boys interested in drama?
I have a new class for 16 – 25 year olds, I am working on Blood Brother to put on locally in Stock and could do with another boy or two. Send me a message to me Netta Barnes on Facebook, email me on email@example.com
LAMDA – LONDON ACADEMY OF MUSIC AND DRAMATIC ART, is one of the oldest governing examination boards. They offer a wide range of exams in speech and drama and the ones I concentrate on are Verse and Prose and Acting. All promote confidence. Further details can be found here.
