Wild Things Drama has a range of classes available. Our main focus is drama training, however we also offer classes in Singing and Musical Theatre Dance. Details of all classes are below.

Drama classes

Imagination classes (3-7 years)

Imagination Classes (3–7 years):
Saturday, 9-10am, Denshaw Village Hall
Sunday, 9-10am, UCO Studios (Oldham)

Wild Things aims to encourage confidence, character building and expression through drama in a non-pressurised environment. Unlike conventional 'drama schools' which often push more outgoing children into taking drama seriously at an early age, Wild Things Drama Club allows children to discover drama at their own pace.

A marked improvement in confidence and self belief can be seen in the children that have been coming to the club for some time.

Our Drama Club puts on two performances a year for parents, friends and family members to watch. At the end of each session there is an awards ceremony, awarding children for 'Best Concentration', 'Best Teamwork', 'Best Respect' and then an overall 'Oscar' for best performer.

“Our three children have been coming to Wild Things Drama Club for over a year now. It has really helped to improve their concentration, behaviour and fired their imagination. They all really look forward to their weekly sessions and feel very much part of the Wild Things family.”

Character classes (8-11 years)

Character Classes (8–11 years):
Saturday 10-11.30am, Denshaw Village Hall
Sunday, 10-11.30am, UCO Studios (Oldham)

Our character classes are for those children that are ready for a little more investigation. We cover the many different ways to create a character, dissect a script and devise scenes for performances – as well as learning about techniques to develop their voice and physicality.

Character students perform in two shows throughout the year and have the opportunity to gain internationally recognised LAMDA qualifications.

Young Actors (11-18 years)

Young Actors:
Saturday 11:30am-1.30pm, Denshaw Village Hall
Sunday 11.30am-1.30pm, UCO Studios (Oldham)

While retaining the sense of fun of the younger age groups, our drama sessions for older students offer a structured academic year in which students get the opportunity to excel in a number of areas. We begin the year with the opportunity to experience the process of auditions for our annual Christmas production in which our older (7-18s) students take the 'parts' and our younger (3-10s) students join in as our chorus.

After Christmas students prepare for LAMDA exams. Finally, at the end of the academic year, our older students get the chance to take part in a more mature production in front of the paying public.

MONTHLY CLASS FEES
Wild Things classes run all the way through the year with a break only at Christmas/New Year. In order to cover our basic overheads, we ask that you pay fees monthly, by standing order between the 1st and 7th day of each month. Drama fees are £32, a second subject (Dance or Singing) is £22 and a third subject (Dance or Singing) is just £12. All siblings receive a 30% discount when the first child is paying full price. Fees cover both 4-week and 5-week months, plus any extra rehearsals we may hold for productions and/or showcases throughout the year. Fees do not cover show costs - a £25 per student 'show fee' is payable each October and May to contribute towards the cost of producing a show (costume and prop hire, the creation of a set, extra staffing etc). 'Show Fees' can be paid either via the student page of the website, or in cash at your child's class. A £2 postage charge will be levied on all website payments to cover the cost of using PayPal. Please note that in order for your child to progress and develop within the group, it is preferable that they attend every session. Class fees are payable whether or not your child attends all classes in the month.
