Drama Kidz!

Registration for our 2018 Drama Kidz program is officially open!

Registration for the second act of our FOURTH Drama Kidz season is NOW OPEN!
Drama Kidz is our Art with Heart youth theatre company lead by local youth playwright and director Nikki Campbell Schram, which focuses on theatre fundamentals while rehearsing for a performance (And having a blast, of course)! A special feature of this program is that Nikki specifically writes the script and tailors each character to each actor; aiming to highlight the young cast members strengths and/or challenge them to try something new. To date, she has written eight children’s plays for young actors in the area!

We welcome ages 7-15 and all levels of experience. Rehearsals are to begin on Wednesday, January 10th and will continue each Wednesday until it culminates with two shows in April at Lighthouse Festival Theatre! (a full, detailed schedule will be provided prior to the first day of rehearsal) The program is $300/actor (plus tax). To register or for more information, please send us a message, call, or email nikki@artwithheartstudio.ca

Registration for this program will close on December 21st, 2017. This is our most popular program and it only has limited spots available so HURRY!
