NAPA’s Drama classes take the format of informal workshops designed to develop performance techniques and key skills that are required for a variety of genres.

Each class works towards regular performances, whether that be informal performances within sessions or the end of year showcases. Both of these allow the students to show off their achievements giving them all a chance to shine.

In addition to regular sessions and shows, students have several opportunities to audition for production classes, in which they rehearse and stage a complete play.

We also offer private acting tuition where we follow the LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) drama syllabus which result in students taking exams and gaining recognized qualifications. In addition these solo sessions can also be tailored towards producing audition material.

NAPA Drama classes are split into age groups

Junior Drama: ages 6-11 yrs

Intermediate Drama: ages 12-16 yrs

Senior Drama: ages 16-22 yrs

Adults: 22 + yrs

The courses are designed not only to develop acting ability but are also a great way of building on other skills necessary for all aspects of life.

  • Improve confidence
  • Develop communication skills
  • Encourage social interaction
  • Improve reading and public speaking
  • Gain performance experience
  • Encourage students to work as part of a team

The objectives of Drama here at NAPA are to allow students to learn, develop and flourish within an informal yet professional environment in the most fun way possible.
