The after school drama classes run for between 40-60 minutes dependant on the class numbers and year level. The classes are organised by school year level so that children are working with peers at the same/similar levels. Children attend one class each week. Classes are held at the Beauchamp Street Chapel and upstairs at the Karori Bridge Club. The classes are $17.00 (excl. GST) per week.
