Drama Classes, Workshops & School Holiday Productions for Children Aged 6 - 18
Dramatic Moments Cambridge
Cambridge Theatre School
Dramatic Moments Cambridge is a Cambridge UK based Children’s Theatre Workshop company, founded in 2006 by husband and wife team, Jill and Philip Sutcliffe.
Since 2006 we have run annual Summer Shows and Christmas Pantomimes, continuing online over the past couple of difficult years. The weekly classes started in 2008, and Trinity College Exams were first held in June 2011. We have a 100% exam pass rate from Grade 1 through to Diploma level. We are an examining Centre for Trinity College London. One of our examiners said that Dramatic Moments Cambridge was outstanding in the way we had prepared our students!
Between us we have decades of teaching experience, and we pride ourselves on letting children have fun while we nurture their talent. Our main focus has always been what makes our students happy. We write all our own shows to ensure that everyone has an equal role. We feel very strongly that all our cast members are stars and therefore they all deserve equal billing!
We do not offer our students promises of stardom but we do promise to build their self-confidence and self-belief, and the chance to make friends with like-minded others.
We believe that the benefits of Drama lessons include:
• confidence building
• helps concentration
• encourages teamwork
• develops creativity
• builds communication skills
• nurtures friendships
• helps children empathise
Take a look at some of our parental feedback!
“Jill and Phil offer an amazing, high quality drama teaching which my children look forward to every week. They spread the joy of and enthusiasm of performing, producing and writing pieces that are tailored to children. I can highly recommend them!”
"My 2 girls have been attending classes at Dramatic Moments for 3 years, they have made some great friends and have learnt so much from Jill and Phil and the team. The classes are fun and varied and include acting, singing and dancing. During their time at Dramatic Moment they have both taken exams and achieved really good results, preparing for and doing the exams was a really fun process for them both. They have also participated in a number of camps in the school holidays, again these are very well run and enjoyable for the children. I would highly recommend Dramatic Moments if your child is keen on drama."
“Dramatic Moments has been incredible for my daughter. She has dyslexia so can struggle to read. Her confidence was rock bottom when she started classes. Drama lessons turned that around – she was so motivated to learn her lines and her reading has improved.”
“My children attended Dramatic Moments Summer School and seeing them up on stage, performing with peers, being part of a large group, working together, caring for younger children was brilliant!”
“I would give Dramatic Moments a billion stars if I could. All my three children have attended classes and Summer Workshops and they all say it was by far the best thing they have done!”
We are now very excited to be offering online Drama lessons, focusing on the works of Shakespeare. Let us open your minds to a whole new world of comedy, tragedy, intrigue and romance – all to be found in the Bard’s works.
In the language of today, let us make the language of Shakespeare user friendly to a whole new audience.
