Drama MOB Classes...

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

Classes - aged 4-6 - acting through role play / improvisations / drama games / very relaxed and informal fun to encourage confidence

Classes - aged 7-16- script reading / building a character / improvisations / working together on showcases to perform in professional theatres with tickets sold to friends and family!

WHERE:

We operate classes from two venues: The Old Parsonage, Stenner Lane, Didsbury, M20 2RQ and Northenden Social Club, 408-412 Palatine Road, M22 4JT.

WHEN:

Please note the ages are approximate and children's placements can be altered as is seen appropriate by our teachers. In the first instance children will be offered the earliest class that suits their age and then can always be moved up into a more appropriate peer group at a later stage. Sibling discount is available in our class sessions.

OTHER INFO:

Following on from the great success of our classes, in 2015 we launched the Drama MOB Management, our very own casting agency.

We now work with many casting directors across the North West and beyond and are proud to represent child actors with regular roles in Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. Our children have worked with some big name brands including John Lewis, Waitrose, Littlewoods, Tesco, ITV, BBC, Virgin Media, Roco Clothing CO OP, Bosch, Regatta and many more.

Most recently one of our youngest stars, Freddie Henderson, secured the role of the smallest Elton in the 2018 John Lewis Christmas Advert and one of our oldest stars, Harry Wyatt, was lead role in Paul McCartney's new music video Fuh You. Harry was fortunate enough to meet Paul who thanked him personally for his outstanding performance!
