Theatre and Film Essentials for Kids (Free)


Drama Classes for Kids

Are your kids craving a space to be creative and play with others? Performance classes at FCAC are back with a bang! Theatre and Film Essentials are back online with a new syllabus and heavily reduced term fees. Come try our online class for free! Our much loved and talented tutor Hayley will get kids in primary school up and moving with improvisation and drama games, all exploring the theme “ This is me!” A celebration of the imagination and self.

Strictly limited places, book your FREE ticket early to avoid disappointment.

FCAC is seriously invested in supporting our community during this difficult time which is why all workshop fees have been heavily reduced for online delivery.

Important information for parents:

  • You will receive an email with workshop information including a basic materials list and the link to our Zoom session, 1 week ahead of the class date. All materials will be basic stationary/supermarket items and materials commonly found around the house.
  • Your child will also need access to a computer device or tablet with internet connection and ‘https://zoom.us/’ downloaded (free), prior to the session.
  • FCAC has a strong commitment to child safety. We will send out a code of conduct one week prior to the session and you can find out more in our terms and conditions.
  • If you have more than one child in the same session, only the registered participant can interact with the facilitators. If you have more than two children using the same device, we strongly encourage you to register with a separate device so as to maintain quality delivery.
