New Bellamy Drama Club launched

Posted onPosted on 31st Aug

Friends of Bellamy and Mansfield CVS – with a little help from Mansfield Palace Theatre – are launching a trial free drama club for all ages and abilities at Trowell Court this September.

Sessions will focus on meeting new people and building confidence, as well as learning a range of skills from role-play to writing scenes.

Each session will be all about giving it a go. We’ll usually begin by playing some drama games together. For younger residents, we will learn about storytelling through play. For adults and older participants, we will work on writing short scenes to perform together. We may even perform a piece on the Palace stage but that’s up to the group, there is no pressure to do this.

Sian Booth, Cultural Services manager for Mansfield District Council, said: “This exciting community project is all about us listening to your ideas and being guided by what you want to do.

“So we may end up doing music and movement or perhaps play games to help build confidence and overcome the anxiety of being in a new group of people – everything will be totally led by you.

“It can be hard to try something new and this project will remove barriers faced by our communities. The project will be led by a tutor with loads of experience in helping young people reach their potential and I can’t wait to see the outcomes of the trial sessions.”

Anyone who comes along to the group will get a free ticket to see ‘Shakers: Under New Management’ at Mansfield Palace Theatre at the end of September. The show centres around a nightclub and follows the everyday lives of waitresses Adele, Nicky and Mel as they juggle home, work, school and everything in between.

All ages are welcome to join. Initial sessions will run on Tuesdays, from 6pm to 8pm, between 6 September and 11 October at Trowell Court Community Centre.
