Paul Wilson: free drama classes at Whitgift school

This is a free Saturday academy, for boys and girls, and based at the school in South Croydon offering sessions in drama, dance and musical theatre, for children aged from eight to 18.

“WAVPA’s teachers are hugely experienced in their fields, appearing frequently in West End productions, and on television,” they say, while Wilson’s drama and music productions at Whitgift School have always been of a reliably high standard.

Applications to join WAVPA’s first term of classes have already closed, but more information can be found at www.whitgift.co.uk/WAVPA or by emailing wavpa@whitgift.co.uk.
