Chance for chil­dren to step into spot­light

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

IF you are sick of the kids act­ing up af­ter school, now there is a way to al­low them to let off some steam un­der the tute­lage of a pro­fes­sional drama teacher.

South Perth res­i­dent and drama teacher Kylie By­wa­ters is run­ning af­ter-school drama classes at the EJ Scout Hall ev­ery Thurs­day as part of the South West Act­ing Academy’s Act­ing Up pro­gram.

Ms By­wa­ters has been teach­ing drama for many years in both Australia and over­seas, but de­cided to set­tle in South Perth last year to take part in sev­eral drama pro­duc­tions at the Old Mill Theatre and teach young stu­dents.

The classes in­volve drama ac­tiv­i­ties and games that aim to de­velop life skills like speak­ing clearly, ex­press­ing emo­tions, work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively with oth­ers and ap­pre­ci­at­ing char­ac­ters.
