Dramalicious is an exciting after school drama program that has been embraced by students at Sholem. There are two groups in the program, Kinder – Grade 1 and Grade 2 -6. The students are taught a variety of dramatic skills, focussing on improving self-confidence and imagination. Working as a group, students will not only learn acting but will also benefit from the development of self-confidence, self-expression, interactive music and movement, voice projection and public speaking. Students work towards dramatic performances, including an end of year performance and those for parents and school assemblies. The drama program is especially devised for young students under the guidance of Sharon Zisin, a veteran Drama Teacher of over 20 years.
