Drama workshops are a popular form of performing arts, and Nugent Education offer a range of workshops; alternatively known as group activities.
These activities and workshops are all delivered by actors and dramatists from theatre, TV and other backgrounds. They can be a great way, in which to work through issues through role play. Drama games can help build confidence, and raise self-esteem, and group cohesion is increased through participation.
These activities and workshops are bespoke, and thereby suitable for all ages and abilities, including children with disabilities, gifted and talented and so on.
If you are a primary, secondary or special school, or children’s activities centre, youth club or any other organisation needing to engage children and young people, drama is a great choice. These activities allow for situations and ideas to be explored in a fun way that engages and educates.

Seanie is really enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge in an educational, proactive environment and has experienced work in many aspects of Childcare & Education. He says:
“In my workshops you can gain a firm understanding of what it is like to be in the drama industry, how to overcome certain anxieties through breath and parts of the Alexander technique, how to project, ways to enunciate…
You will most certainly get to see the fun side of drama, through my devising exercises, improv games and physical theatre activities. I can cater for all ages children, adults, elderly at an engaging, and formative level. I have a zero-tolerance rule on prejudice or bullying behaviour in my workshops, generally, 3 strikes and you’re out of the lesson. I’m open to working with parents, carers, teachers, social workers etc, to form a fair and developmental professional association.
