Theatre On The River has been running LAMDA Speech and Drama clubs a Donhead Preparatory School since January 2017. Based in Wimbledon this dynamic boys school is creative and the students display a keen passion for drama and performing.
The boys follow the LAMDA Acting syllabus and work towards their acting grades at the end of the summer term. The boys spend three terms working on the follwoing:-
- Years 1-3: Introductory Examinations in Performance
- Year 4: Entry Acting Grade
- Year 5: Grade 1 Acting
- Year 6: Grade 2 Acting
We run the LAMDA Speech and Drama clubs at the following times during term time only: -
- Monday lunchtimes: 12.30-1.15pm - Years 5&6 LAMDA
- Mondays 3.30-5pm - Years 1-4 LAMDA
LAMDA not only enhances the boyss’ love and talent for Drama; it also benefits many other areas of their academic curriculum. LAMDA encourages boys to be analytical, to explore and empathise with a diverse range of characters, ignites the imagination for creative writing and poetry composition and promotes excellent public speaking skills.
All boys are welcome onto the LAMDA course and no previous experience with the examination grades are required.
