What happens in a Pyjama Drama session?
For children up to five years old the Pyjama Drama teacher helps gently guide the children through an imaginative role-play with the children playing a key part in shaping the direction of the drama. From five years each session begins with the leader telling the opening of a simple story to the point of conflict or climax.
