The 'Drama in the Forest' concept:

The concept of all ‘Drama in the Forests’ is that participants get the chance to work as a team crafting their own piece of unique theatre incorporating drama skills they are taught. Groups are small and supportive and their drama work is guided and assisted by a skilled team of hands-on workshop leaders.  All are to feel a sense of accomplishment performing their play to families and friends at the end of the last day of each workshop.  The ambience of creating drama outdoors in a beautiful, nurturing setting enhances the experience, helping the children express themselves freely and simply enjoy playing in nature.  The outdoors setting also sets the stage for all children to meet on neutral ground as collaborators, friends and equals who get to know each other as unique and special members of ‘the Drama in the Forest’ community.
