Acting Classes

Acting Academy classes last 90 minutes, this allows for a vocal/body warm up and drama games to increase confidence and creativity before the main activity. All academy classes are taught by Melanie Ash, assisted by Hollie Thornton.

Musical Theatre classes are 3 hours in total, allowing one hour for each discipline (voice, dance and drama). All musical theatre classes are taught by industry professionals and managed by Melanie Ash. For ages 5-8 years and 9-13 years.

Community Drama Clubs typically last 1 hour and the focus is on increasing confidence and improving skills.

LAMDA exam preparation  Founded in 1861, LAMDA is the oldest drama school in the UK. The process of preparing for and succeeding in a LAMDA examination essentially helps learners, whatever their ages or aspirations, to develop a broad range of skills that will serve them throughout life. Meladrama have an enviable history of delivering consistently brilliant results! Last year 27 students trained for LAMDA acting exams – with 24 students gaining a ‘distinction’ (top mark) and a 100% pass rate over the last 15 years.
