Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at The Rockwood Theatre

Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at The Rockwood Theatre

Taking part in weekly group classes Drama Dynamics young actors are hard at work learning new acting skills and brushing up on their techniques as they prepare for the annual Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at the Rockwood Theatre (Formerly Barnyard Theatre)Pretoria in October.

Our talented young actors, aged between 10 and 18 years, are known for their phenomenal performances and are eager to share their talents with friends and family when they take to the stage later this year.

We are always welcoming fabulous, new actors to the Drama Dynamics group, where some are being taught drama skills for the very first time and some are fine-tuning talents, all to ensure an awesome production that will delight the whole family. Our wonderful young actors are learning new acting skills throughout the year to make sure they deliver their best acting performance and most of the pieces will be written by the learners themselves.

Drama Dynamics offers a world of acting enjoyment to all kids who are part of the Drama Dynamics group, keeping them motivated, stimulated and exhilarated through characterisation, physical performance, movement activities and directing. Children learn how to act out fun skits, learn miming skills, explore acting-for-film techniques, do improvisational activities and the Showcase is a chance for them to show their friends and family how they have grown their confidence as young actors.

Drama Dynamics Parties


Deciding what party to throw for your child’s birthday doesn’t need to be a challenging experience when you have the fantastic option of choosing an exciting party

Two fantastic Options to choose from:




Drama Parties: We’ll start off with ‘Theatre Sports’ where the children get their creative juices flowing with improv acting games and create an improvised dramatic Happy Birthday skit. Kids also get to dress up in costumes and use props to create scenes, which they perform for one another. Filled with high energy, creative, exciting activities which all children at the party can enjoy together, they end off with a ‘Glam Photo Shoot’ to create uniquely special memories for their parents and friends to treasure for years.

Music Video Parties: What child hasn’t always dreamed of being in their very own music video and getting film performance experience!

Kids will be choreographed, then act out, move and lip-sync to the song of choice… with the birthday girl/boy as the lead star. What fun!

professional videographer/director will then shoot the video… awesome!

Once edited, the complete music video will be emailed to you for you to download and share.

2017 Enrolments Are Now Open!



A brand new year has arrived and its’ time to decide what activities will suitably enhance your child’s skills, build their communication and confidence, as well as keep them entertained. With Drama Dynamics Speech and Drama Classes, children will learn the art of characterisation, physical performance, take part in movement activities, learn directing skills and experience loads of fun exploring their creativity.

Melissa Carreira, director at Drama Dynamics says children are taught how to act out fun skits, mime, act for comedy and improv game skills. Believing that dramatic arts education is an important means of stimulating creativity in problem solving to challenge children’s perceptions about their world and about themselves and lessons are practical and skills-based, with some theory covered.

“We offer Private Performance Lessons throughout the year to boost children’s acting, communication and confidence skills individually, as well as assist with Eisteddfod and audition pieces. In February, kids are given the opportunity to take part in the Provincial championships as well as the National championships in April, and receive their Provincial Colours in Acting. The annual Comedy Club in May (TBC), a hands-on workshop teaches children practical comedy acting skills, and the Easter Holiday Club, a colourful acting workshop, filled with fun acting and improv activities, will keep the children entertained during the school holidays,” she says.

In June, the team at Drama Dynamics will hold the Winter Holiday Club, an energetic drama workshop that will warm away any child’s winter blues and in August, children will enjoy the Acting for Film Workshop. She says at this workshop they will learn the skills essential when performing in front of a camera.

“The very exciting Halloween Holiday Club, an acting workshop held in September, gives kiddies the chance for some dramatic monster fun during the school holidays in preparation for Halloween. In October, learners will showcase acting skills and pieces written and performed by themselves at the spectacular annual Drama Dynamics Showcase.

According to this director, at the centre of all drama is communication and drama provides training in practical aspects of communication necessary in today’s increasingly information-centred world. She says learners who have participated in dramatic activities are less likely to have difficulty speaking in public, more persuasive in their communications and should be better able to empathise and relate to others, due to the focus on group dynamics during weekly group lessons.

“Dramatic exploration provides children with an outlet for emotions, thoughts and dreams they might not otherwise have means to express. It requires self-control and discipline that serves a child well in all aspects of life helping to build a more positive, confident self-image. At Drama Dynamics children will receive specialised attention as they participate in practical, full of energy, hands on acting classes that excite and delight,” says Melissa.
