Drama looks ahead

Drama in the Wychwoods is not just about the past.  While the Wychwood Players thrives for adults, there are drama groups aimed at children and young people.  Saplings for the younger age group, with its mission statement of Watch us grow, has involved every aspect of performance skills, with a major focus on fun and friendship.  That group has been in existence for over ten years while the BODs group (Branching Out Drama Society) is just two years old.  Their mission statement is Hear our voice.  This older group, for 11-18 year olds, has similar approaches to the Saplings, aiming to help the youngsters to learn responsibility, to develop confidence and to explore talents that they may not have appreciated in the past.  Thanks to the enthusiasm of their leader, Mandyrae Jessey, both groups have given our young people the opportunity to shine – it really is as simple as that.

The future of drama in the Wychwoods seems assured.
