Drama gives children the opportunity to explore situations topics and individual feelings in a safe environment. It helps them to learn important coping strategies which build resilience and gently build up their confidence and self-esteem.
At Prop Box we specialise in working with shy and anxious children and aim to spark imagination, creativity, and individual expression in a safe environment to develop confidence in each and every child that walks through our doors.
Why Prop Box?
At Prop Box we are small, inclusive, non profit community theatre group who take time to get to know every child and their individual needs. Our classes are small and friendly and everyone is welcome no matter their ability or disability!
