With its annual Summer Holiday Musical and new after-school clubs, Dramatic Dreams is changing lives through drama

The long holiday is fast approaching and with it comes the perennial question: how best to occupy the children? If they are interested in music or theatre, one answer is Dramatic Dreams’ Summer Holiday Musical.

Dramatic Dreams Theatre Company is the brainchild of local actress, Arwen Burnett. It provides inspirational in-school and holiday workshops and after-school clubs for children aged 4 to 18. The Summer Musical (22-26 July) is always an annual highlight. ‘We will be creating a musical in a week at the Playground Theatre in Latimer Road,’ explains Arwen. ‘It’s a lovely performance space and places are open to everyone.

Watching the young people experience what it is like to act on a professional stage is wonderful.’

Having trained at ArtsEd, Arwen founded Dramatic Dreams 19 years ago as a way of combining her love
of theatre with a desire to work with children. ‘I asked a local school if I could run an after-hours drama club. The Head said yes, and we have grown from there through recommendation and word-of-mouth.’

After initially focusing on primary schools, Arwen went on to develop a secondary school programme to work on GCSE and A-Level projects, a Presentation Skills course for teenagers and, such is their popularity, in September she will be starting two new after-school clubs, one in Chiswick and the other in Hammersmith.

‘Our classes are run by professional actors and they all have a passion for engaging with young people. Drama is such a powerful tool. It is so exciting to see how it helps children build their confidence socially and academically and fulfil their true potential.’
