Make, believe & shine...

Welcome to the DramaMill

The Drama Mill is an exciting Theatre Arts Company who deliver fantastic workshops,classes, parties and holiday activity weeks in East Lothian and Edinburgh.

 Inspiring creativity...

The Drama Mill believe that all children have extraordinary capacity for creativity. Our ethos is to inspire and develop that creativity by delivering workshops which embrace and celebrate each child's brilliance to make them feel 10 ft tall.

classes

We provide after school classes for 5 to 12 year olds in East Lothian. The sessions last for either 60 or 90 minutes and provide students with a fun, exciting, friendly yet safe environment in which to explore the many elements of drama. During this time students will play energetic drama games and learn and work on a variety of performance skills such as movement, mime, storytelling and improvisation. The Drama Mill concentrates on creative drama allowing students to lead and improvise their own stories and ideas which gives them ownership of these activities. Please see below for our timetable. Or check out our facebook page

parties

Are you stressed out organising your child's birthday party ? Tired of putting 26 layers on pass the parcel ? The Drama Mill can also offer a unique drama party for your child's special day. During this experience the child will go on an imaginative journey on a theme of their choice, play energetic and exciting drama games and finish the session with dancing or birthday party games. Please see below for our timetable. Or check out our facebook page

NURSERIES

Pre-school children have exceptional talent for make believe. It is a privilege for us to work with children at this time as their imagination knows no bounds which is a joy to watch. The Drama Mill have developed a successful program of workshops for preschool children in over twenty nurseries in Edinburgh and The Lothians. We work very closely with each individual nursery to tailor-make classes to their curriculum. Our workshops deliver on all aspects of the curriculum for excellence. Our teacher in role centred approach captures children's imagination and helps to ensure their ownership of each and every activity in a fun and energising way.

Tell me and I'll forget, Show me and I may not remember. Involve me and I'll understand"

We strongly believe that Drama is a unique tool to support and explore many different subjects in the School curriculum. Drama can reach students who otherwise couldn't be reached and challenge students who have already grasped the concepts. We can tailor make drama workshops for any topic. Recent projects  include the development and direction of St Marys Primary P7 leaver show for two years running. Workshops exploring health and well being throughout East Lothian during health week. Historical workshops for Law Primary at Tantallon Castle and sessions exploring the poetry of Rabbie Burns.

YOUTH THEATRE

Indelible Arts Youth Theatre is currently in its 2nd year providing weekly sessions for young people aged 12-18 in North Berwick. Our workshops offer young people the opportunity to create and take part in new and exciting theatrical experiences. We are very excited about our projects this term. Our S3-S6 group will be taking part in the National Theatres Connection Programme, the biggest Youth Theatre Festival in Britain, culminating in a performance at The Royal Lyceum Theatre in June and our S1 and S2 group are currently devising a show which will be performed as promenade theatre in a forest in East Lothian. Please have a look at our class timetables for information about our weekly sessions.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITY WEEKS

The Drama Mill is looking forward to its next holiday venture in 2015, an exciting Easter Drama School at both The Compass School in Haddington and Gullane Village Hall in the 2nd week of the Easter holidays. During this week children will be able to get involved in creating their own stories, sing, dance, do arts and crafts and play lots of games. Spaces are filling up fast so please contact us ASAP to book your child a space. For more information please scroll down to our Class Timetables.
