OXONDrama was recently featured in the Oxford Press. Thank you to Marc West for such a great article!
Here’s an excerpt:
My friends would probably describe me as a bit of a drama queen and if I’m honest I’ve always wanted to explore my thespian side and try my hand at acting.
So, last week I enrolled on a beginner’s drama class for adults at the centre’s latest addition, Oxon Drama.
Having studied at Columbia College in Chicago under Broadway director David Kromer, Rachel-Mae Brady is now a professional actress with extensive industry experience – who readers may recognise from BBC fantasy drama Camelot. As an actor and instructor, she understands how nerve-wracking getting up in front of others can be.
“The aim of the school is to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for people in which to learn and create,” explains Rachel-Mae.
“Most people’s biggest worry is that they’ll be pushed outside their comfort zone, so it’s really important to establish a fun and supportive group dynamic.
“This leads to students taking risks and unleashing their creativity. It’s a real joy to watch people develop the raw talent they’ve always had into wonderful performances.”
And, she’s right… I was surprised at how quickly barriers were broken down, teamwork was established and imaginations let loose.
