The benefits for your child.

Our primary focus is not just about students getting on the stage and performing - its about about achieving long communication skills. Not all children will become actors. In-fact very few will. But our students will all become adults. It is our job to help them to fill their toolbox with the skills and experiences they will need to thrive.


Creativity + Imagination.

Performance skills.


Social skills + friendships.



Public speaking skills.

Speech + Drama. At your school. 

Itinerant Speech + Drama classes within the school are a great option for students, parents and educators. Our classes teach students the strategies and tools they need to achieve lifelong communication and performance skills. Our classes are based on the Speech New Zealand Syllabus which builds on - and extends, the Ministry of Education oral language teaching and learning objectives. Just send us a message if you would like to see our programme at your school.
