Adult classes no drama for teacher
LOCAL drama whiz Lachlan Glasby plans to start adult drama classes in Murwillumbah after years of teaching hundreds of primary and secondary school kids.
Mr Glasby yesterday said he had been pushed to offer adult drama lessons after a flood of requests from parents and others.
“I’ve had a lot of parents and a lot of people aged 18 and over ask me when I would start one for adults,” Mr Glasby said.
“This is the fifth year my drama studio has been running.
“In that time I’ve put on over 24 productions and I’ve seen 350 to 400 students pass through my tuition.”
Mr Glasby said he was hoping to finalise class numbers before settling on a central location.
“A lot of adults have approached me saying they would like to do something creative which would also give them confidence.”
Yesterday Mr Glasby sized up the main pavilion in the Murwillumbah Showground and urged anyone interested in joining the class to phone him on 0432 387 691 or email email@example.com.
The aim of drama is to provide the students with experiences for the intellect, emotions, imagination and the body to all be developed.
Drama students learn about themselves and others by creating characters and situations.
Drama provides a powerful means of exploring the way people react and respond to different situations, issues and ideas.
It provides a means of increasing self-confidence and social awareness.
