Happy Kings & Queens

The Happy Kings and Queens Drama group is focused on fun, inclusive, member led drama activities, with at least one show a year.

When: 5-6pm every Thursday
Where:St. Barnabas Church, Temple Road, Epsom, KT19 8HA
Price: £3.50 (includes entry to Kites Club)

Each week the group meets to do workshops, which help improve their skills as actors, help deal with complex life events, or are part of developing their annual production.

Members of The Happy Kings and Queens pitch for the show they would like to perform and then the group vote for their favourite to produce that year.  As part of this, the group enjoys a theatre trip to see someone else’s interpretation of their chosen show, or just to get a feel for and learn from professional theatre.

The Happy Kings and Queens are a hard-working and supportive group, who practice team work each week.  Joining in with drama is great for building confidence, meeting new people, being creative and expressing yourself.

Every drama session starts with a warm-up that everyone is encouraged to join in with.  This changes each week and could be involve improvisation, story-telling, physical theatre and movement, or role-playing.
Members of the group are encouraged to share their ideas, support each other, and be involved in all aspects of theatre.  That said, depending on what you’re comfortable with, everyone is welcome to opt in or out of different parts of the workshop so they enjoy themselves as much as possible.

Everyone is welcome to join The Happy Kings and Queens Drama Group, so if it sounds like fun to you get in touch!
