Times: 9.30 am to 1 pm

Please note: Our sessions are fully Covid secure without diminishing the fun and creativity. Should this workshop need to be cancelled due to new government guidelines, full refunds will be available.

Bristol Academy of Drama are delighted to be offering infant school children the opportunity to take an exciting and creative journey into the world of drama and performance by exploring and then sharing a short performance piece based on the wonderfully fun and engaging story Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell.

The workshop offers younger children the opportunity to develop the building blocks of drama and performance. Throughout the 2 days, the group will explore the world of the Zoo and introduce the children to performing, drama games, characterisation, storytelling and chorus work. It will also help build teamwork and the children will make new friends, build confidence and creative thinking skills. But more than that, it is designed for children to have a really fun few days and introduce them to the world of theatre performance.

Led by our experienced drama facilitators, the children will build their new theatrical world for a filmed performance (copies will be emailed after the workshop). They will not only perform in the play but, throughout the creative process, learn to share ideas and work with others to bring the story to life. Through speaking, listening and using imagination, children will build their understanding of how to dramatise a story and present a finished production which will be filmed and sent to families to enjoy watching together.

So sign up now for 2 days of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends.

Due to limited spaces available, it is recommended that parents/guardians book early to avoid disappointment. Early Bird Discount (until 12th March) and Sibling Discount available, simply email us at for the discount codes.

All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.

We would recommend this workshop for children who are already at school so for children in Reception to Year 2.

*Please note that this workshop is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list, please contact us via the email above or by filling the form below.
