COVID-19 - Precautionary Measures
Click here to check out the precautionary measures we’ve put in place to keep your children SAFE & HAPPY at our Easter Camps!

(Ages 4-5, 6-8 & 9-12)

Thanks to the expertise of the Faust International Youth Theatre, our excellent Drama Academy camp will build your child’s creativity, confidence, character development and communication through games, improvisation, storytelling, acting and movement. It enables exposure to different views of the world through characters and bringing literacy to life.

Warm-ups, games, improvisation, learning lines, devising scenes complete with costumes and music and rehearsals culminate in taking to the stage on Friday afternoon, an emotional and memorable experience for both you and your child. 

"My kids love performing so this was the perfect camp for them and they also learned all about how to put a production in place. They had a fantastic time at Camp Asia and it was such fun watching their final showcase!”

Drama Academy Weekly Themes

Week: Theme
Dec 16-20 The Snowman
Jan 6-10  The Story of Nian

The Snowman

The Snowman comes to visit this December. Where did he come from? Why is he here? Whatever the reason, he must be kept a secret. Unleash your creative streak and tap on your imagination as we walk in the air and float in the sky with The Snowman. Using theatrical approaches like miming, puppetry and role-play, the young ones will be guided through this experiential imaginative adventure through music and movement. At the end of the week, parents are invited to join in the fun and be part of the adventure at the open session.

The Story of Nian

Ever wonder why Chinese New Year celebrations include firecrackers and the colour red? The answer can be found through the story of Nian, a myth from Ancient China about a beast that frightens villagers yearly. How can the villagers outwit the scary beast? Using theatrical approaches like miming, puppetry and role-play, the young ones will be guided to bring this story to life on stage. Friends and family members are welcome to join us as we present this age-old tale at the end of the week.
