Spring 2018 is all about COMEDY!

Meladrama Comedy Ticket PROOF (2)

This term we are enjoying studying comedy and having a right laugh at the same time!  All the students will take part in our comedy showcase – and as always – every student will take an equal role and be given an opportunity to shine!  You don’t want to miss this show – students will put their own spin on the best of British Comedy including Victoria Wood, Monty Python, Catherine Tate and even Morcambe and Wise!

Tickets available in class!


We finished a fantastic 2017 with a showcase of our Acting For TV Monologues. The standard was incredibly high! Everybody worked so hard and we were hard pressed to choose a winner…..But I promised the students a red carpet and awards and so we HAD to choose some winners!
