Driftwood Theatre School is expanding its programming into Sechelt with the addition of teen and pre-teen drama classes at St. Hilda's starting in January.

Veteran Instructor Ingrid Bilton's discovering drama (nine to 13) is an action-packed initiation into the world of live theatre with lessons in creative movement, mime, improvisation, characterization and scene work.

Renowned actor/director/instructor John Conway (aka The Green Man, as seen on CBC's Dragons' Den) will lead a master theatre class for teens that will inspire and challenge students of all levels and abilities. His trademark "no stress - no mess - passionately taught with a smile" approach promises "a lot of zany, serious fun" incorporating improvisation, physical theatre, acting, silly songs and scripts.

Junior drama advanced - taking it to the next level (10 to 13) returns to Gibsons with Bilton for a fun and engaging course for experienced young thespians. Local educator and songbird extraordinaire Sara Douglas will be on hand periodically to help students discover the magic of musical theatre.

For more information or to register, call Sandi at 604-886-0143 or email registrar.dts@uniserve.com. You can also register in person this Saturday, Jan. 11, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. Bart's Hall in Gibsons. See more at www.driftwoodplayers.ca/dts.htm.
