Hi! We are a small, friendly, inclusive theatre group for children of all abilities and backgrounds. Please get in touch if you have any questions!

The aim of the group is to build resilience, confidence and communication skills through drama and performance work. The group started up in September 2019 but had to take a (very long) break due to Covid. We are hoping to get back up and running again this September! A bit about me…
I am currently a part-time secondary school teacher. I also run a drama club and help with performances at MCA, whe

Firstly, a huge well done to everyone who performed today! 🤩👏 I also want to give my heartfelt thanks to all the children and parents who have put their trust in me over the past few years. While saying goodbye, I was moved to realise just how much drama has meant to these amazing children. It has been a wonderful privilege to see them flourish and develop skills that will potentially last them a lifetime. I will miss them all!
The page will stay live for a couple more weeks so that parents can have access to all the pictures.
Goodbye and thank you so much for all the support. Amy 💖🎭

We’re almost ready to perform our version of ‘Billionaire Boy’ to family and friends in a couple of weeks time. 🤩
This will be our final performance and final session but we will certainly finish on a high!
I have absolutely loved working with this group and I’m so proud of every one of them. 😊

A few more pics from this morning 😁

Today we performed to the lovely and welcoming residents of Friston House Care Home, Rochester. We told the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the residents thoroughly enjoyed it!

This was our first time venturing out of the village hall but, as expected, the children all stepped up to the challenge of performing in a totally unfamiliar setting, with absolute confidence and enthusiasm. Brilliant achievement everyone!! 🤩

Huge thanks to all parents for the ongoing support and for giving up time to get the children there this morning!

15/12/2022

Well done everybody for showcasing your amazing work on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory today with tons of enthusiasm, skill and sparkle! I’m so proud of you all! 🤩

Got some lovely feedback too…

‘Another brilliant performance. Thank you for running drama club.

We all thought the performance was brilliant! They were all fantastic!

It was so lovely to see my daughter enjoying a part and making it her own. She has grown so much in confidence, thank you.’

A few pics of the scene we worked on today. The acting is going so well! Just one more scene to put together so we’re now focussing on learning lines and perfecting the scenes. It’s a busy stage and they’re a fantastic team! 🤩

Full team effort today with superb acting and our scenes are coming along nicely! 🤩

We’ve had a great start to our adaptation of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, with some brilliant characterisation already emerging! 🤩

Just before the sad news was announced…

These kids were back to drama with a BANG today! Brand new term, brand new project, and they thoroughly embraced it with their fantastic creativity and acting skills!

I do have a space available and it’s an ideal time to join our theatre group- please share with anyone who may be interested 😊

And that’s a wrap! Final session of this academic year! It was very relaxed today- we played silly games and a did a bit of freestyle improvisation.

We will be back on Thursday 8th September, when we will start working hard on our next play. The students shared lots of great suggestions today, so next year is looking very exciting!

Huge thanks to everyone who has supported our group throughout this year and wishing you all a fantastic summer! 🤩

Love working with this group! Improvisation skills just keep getting better and I’m seeing some very accomplished acting! They are all so focussed and create such a positive atmosphere! Such a brilliant session today 🤩

Very excited that our little theatre group is growing, along with the skill and talent!
Today we used a range of devising techniques to communicate a short narrative. They shared ideas in groups, listened really well to each other, and performed with an abundance of energy and expression! 🤩

Some impressive and imaginative improvisation work today! We were working on effective use of dialogue and character motivation to create short scenes in pairs…and there was plenty of enthusiasm, energy and skill on show! 🤩

Fantastic performance for parents from this little team of superstars! Well done for what you’ve all achieved and for every challenge you have overcome to succeed! 🤩

Lines are almost learnt, props have been added, and we’ve rehearsed through all the scenes today. But what’s most impressive is how they pull together to take ownership over the organisation and smooth running of the performance. Brilliant team work. We’re looking forward to sharing it next week! 🤩
Email to follow with details...

We did a fairly smooth run-through today. Lines are being learnt, acting is improving (and becoming very comical!) and we worked on scene transitions. They were all very focussed and demonstrated brilliant teamwork today. So proud! Performance date to be emailed out very soon 🤩

We’re currently working hard to polish scenes and learn lines in preparation for a full performance after the Easter break…🤩

Glad to be back! Had some fun with balloons and finished with a bit of off-text improv. They’re all getting very good at independently applying their drama skills! 🤩

Photos from Meopham Youth Theatre Group's post 27/01/2022

We improvised the very final scene with all their imaginative and entertaining ideas! They all contributed and worked so well together! 🤩

Finished our scripted scenes today. 😁 Next week we’re going to improvise an alternative ending, so everyone has been asked to come with their best imaginative ideas 🤩

Great to have everyone there today! We started working on the next part of our ‘Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations’ inspired performance…

First session of 2022 and it was great to see them back, having fun and working so well together during the games and activities 🤩

Incredibly proud of this small but mighty group and the remarkable progress they have made this term, including those who couldn’t be there this evening. They really pulled together to perform and entertain! Well done everyone and I look forward to seeing you all next term. 🤩

We’re looking forward to performing and showing our progress next week!

We’ve been working on energy, exaggeration and voice projection today 🤩

Hard at work rehearsing…

They all really impressed me today with their confidence; experimenting with voices and actions to create and develop the characters. 🤩

Photos from Meopham Youth Theatre Group's post 21/10/2021

Great collaborative teamwork and lots of dramatic action! They all worked really hard today. 🤩

We have started working on a play to perform! It’s called ‘Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations’ by Sir Alan Ayckbourn.
Students were introduced to the story today. They worked together to devise their own interpretation of the key scenes using tableaux and role-play. Their acting was energetic, animated, and very enjoyable to watch! 🤩🎭

Photos from Meopham Youth Theatre Group's post 23/09/2021

Working with a script today, students had to put together and perform short scenes from the ‘The 3 Little Pigs’…all in the space of 30 minutes! I was so impressed by their hard work and skills to produce a successful performance in such a short amount of time. 🤩
