Rehearse and Perform a Play in Just 8 Weeks

If you ever performed in a play as a kid, you probably carry fond memories of your time onstage. Maybe you also picked up some important life skills along the way! Theatre helps kids develop confidence, creativity, teamwork skills, and self-discipline.

Drama by George can bring your students the same kind of learning experience — one that builds memories and grows social emotional skills. In just eight weekly after-school sessions, we’ll expose your students to the basics of theatre while they rehearse a fully-staged short play!

Why Drama by George?

1. A Complete Arts Enrichment Solution

We provide a comprehensive arts enrichment program that includes a highly-qualified teaching artist, fun and age-appropriate scripts, an online registration portal, informative parent letters, and even portable stage curtains.

2. Stretching Dramatic Muscles.

Students learn acting basics by rehearsing a short play. The kids perform at the end of their final meeting for an invited audience of family and friends.

3. Every Child Gets a Part.

Our proprietary scripts allow every student who enrolls to have a meaningful speaking part! (We never cast anyone as “Second Tree from the Right.”) We believe the best way for kids to learn both theatre skills and life skills is for them to perform, so our drama clubs culminate in a show that makes everyone an integral part of the team.

4. We Believe in Kids.

Educational theatre isn’t a small part of what we do — it’s the main thing we do. Drama by George has offered character-building programs for children and teens since 2007.

5. A Proven Concept.

Thousands of Kentuckiana students have benefitted from our after-school programs since 2009. Young actors frequently enjoy our programs so much that they return again and again!
