Why teach drama to children and teenagers?
Drama instruction, specifically, builds confidence and teaches social and public speaking skills in a variety of ways. Teaching creativity to children and teenagers will enhance their chances of developing critical and problem solving skills. These skills will better enable them to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world.
Whether the students are looking to pursue theatre as a career, a hobby or a one-time experience, our classes will help them move forward. The skills learned in PTS Drama Classes & Camps can be applied throughout all walks of life.
Weekly Fall, Winter, & Spring Drama Classes. For students 5 – 17 years old, we have a variety of offerings each semester to suit all ages and skill levels!
Drama Day Camps: Spring & Summer Break. One or two week camps for 8 – 14 year olds excited to learn new skills and make new friends. Participants are divided into groups and attend classes that cover topics like: movement, voice work, improv, stage fighting, stagecraft and much more! Each group creates their own plays to be performed for friends and family.
In 2003 & 2004 respectively, The Glen C. Martin and Robert A. Campbell Memorial Bursaries were established by the Pumphouse to honour these two supporters and to allow children of families with economic challenges to participate in the magical world of theatre. Throughout the 45-year history of the Pumphouse, both Glen and Robert served as Auditors, Financial Advisors and Champions of the Pumphouse Theatre.
Please contact Kelly Malcolm, Director of Programming to apply for a bursary.
