Adult Boys Advanced Drama
Adult Boy’s Advanced Drama class is a class for boys ranging from 15-21 years of age, who are serious about Acting. The class is headed by Judith Taylor who is Head of Drama for Singer Stage School, and a LAMDA Drama examiner and a working actress. Although comedic themes are covered in these lessons, there is a hard-hitting edge to a lot of the themes, in preparation for the work that is currently available in the industry. Classes are held Wednesday evenings in Leigh-on-Sea. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The programme of topics covered includes.
