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 7-13 and all levels of experience.
Rehearsals for Act II: the Port Dover company will be on Wednesdays starting Jan 8th and Simcoe company will be on Thursdays starting Jan 9 after school and go for 12 weeks until they culminate with two shows (Apr. 2 & 3) at Lighthouse Festival Theatre!
A full, detailed schedule will be provided prior to the first day of rehearsal. The program is $310/
Registration closes Dec 19th for Act II $310 + HST

On April 6th, 2018, the Art with Heart Drama Kidz company capped off an amazing Season Four in Port Dover with their production of PURRFECT at Lighthouse Festival Theatre, performing a matinee show for FOUR local schools and then an evening show for friends and family! Check out the video of the performance to see what an AMAZING job they did!
The show was written by Director Nikki Campbell-Schram and was inspired by local cat rescue Purrfect Companions of Norfolk, exploring how these tiny balls of fur can take up so much room in our hearts!
