Would you like to be in a show? In a show onstage and under the lights with sound? In a show, onstage in a theatre? Then this summer term at the Westy is just what you are looking for.  This term, after 12 weeks of rehearsal, the fruits of your labour results in a show that you can invite all of your family and friends to watch. If this sounds like something that would interest you then sign up, come and try it out for a week and see if it is a good fit! 

It has never been so important to help children develop self-confidence and resilience! The West End Centre Drama Studio offers a safe environment in which to express how you’re feeling while learning different techniques for communicating and entertaining.

Through improvisation games young people learn to think on their feet and develop ways to respond in the moment to situations. Alongside those games and theatre exercises there is a strong element of teamwork.

Bekki uses a large library of games, drama exercises and activities built up over 20 years. These games are signed to help establish trust, boost creativity, build confidence, and have fun doing so! 

Tutor: Bekki Budd 

Bekki has a BA (Hons) and MA (Hons) in English Literature, a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Education and has taught arts and humanities extensively at the secondary and undergraduate levels. Before moving to England in the late 1980s, Bekki trained as an actor and director at the Brendan Smith Academy of Acting. She then became involved in the acting troupes and theatre groups associated with the West End Centre and started teaching her very first youth drama class here when she was nineteen years old.
