With double the enrolments, double the performances, and what felt like TRIPLE the enthusiasm, RED ROAR’s January School Holiday Workshop has got families in the Inner West asking for Easter dates already! After brainstorming genres and themes, students in mixed age groups from 6 years old to twelve years old worked together to devise, write, rehearse and perform two original plays, MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO and SHARK ATTACK, both of which were very well received by families at the wrap-up showcase on Friday 6th of January. By the following Monday we had received many messages from parents anting to know the dates for Easter! One mother shared a conversation she had with her two daughters – both of whom had attended:

K (aged 9): I really wish we could do the Red Roar Drama Camp every day … you know … instead of school!

M (aged 6): Oh … Me too! Can we? Can we?!!

Other parents who had thought their kids ‘too-cool-for-drama-school’ have reported their surprise on hearing such positive feedback from them, one saying how her 9 year old boy has been ‘thrusting the script that he kept as a memento onto all visiting relatives and friends, he is just that proud of it!’

We think the secret ingredients that our facilitators throw in to a Red Roar School Holiday Programme are:

1) Passion,

2) Listening,

3) Fun,

4) Support.

When young people are engaged and have true ownership, they are most happy, and out of that happiness, their confidence grows.

We can’t wait for the next School Holiday Programme which is set now for April 14-18 at Newtown Public School. Earlybirds Book Now! Email director@redroar.com.au or Call Gavin Vance on 0467375368 to find out more!

“The Five-Day Play was the best fun Liesl has had in the school holidays for a long time! She thoroughly enjoyed it and loved the build up to performance on the final day (which the parents enjoyed as much as the kids). It really was wonderful to see them in action.” Liesl’s Mum - Lynda Jupp, October 2013

'The larger Kids Theatre providers don't produce programs as fun as these, or performances as good as these! Red Roar is is REAL value for money!' Maddie's Mum, Kerrie Cant, February 2014

"Thank you again for giving the kids the space to play, learn and grow. We can't wait for the next one!" Georgia Bartley, April 2014
