While there is an end of year performance, it is not the main focus of the year. It’s about the process, what you learn along the way, not just the end product.
“Discovering Drama” school was established in September 2002 and has grown from 9 students to over 300. It is called “Discovering Drama” for a reason; as drama is not just about the end product but what can be learned through the process.
Our aim is to instill in the students an appreciation of theatre and stage craft, and an ability to work efficiently in groups whilst also taking responsibility as individuals. They gain the confidence to speak publicly while having (we hope) a lot of fun in the process.
Currently there are three centres where classes are held:
- The first is in Bree National School on Tuesdays.
- The second and third centres are in Wexford town on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The school runs for four eight week terms culminating in an end of year performance.
