Hello and welcome to Drama Kids
Our names are Suzanne and Robert Kaplan and we are the Directors of Drama Kids International for the Tucson, Marana and Oro Valley areas. Drama Kids International is the largest after-school drama program in the world, with more than 1,500 plus locations in both the US and internationally. Locally, we have over 45 classes and 450 students. Plus, we have recently added musical theater opportunities to our class offerings. We welcome ALL students regardless of their level of acting abilities or challenges and they each have unique ways to shine during our showcase presentations and musical theater performances.
There is a direct correlation between a student’s confidence and their overall school performance. Tomorrow’s leaders are confident, articulate, creative, and solution makers. These skills can be taught, and we are thrilled to offer a unique developmental drama program in the Tucson Marana and Oro Valley communities that does just that!
At Drama Kids the “Difference is Dramatic!” Developing important lifelong speaking, leadership, and social skills through FUN drama activities is our specialty!
While your child will certainly gain acting skills that will be beneficial to a budding “star” through our weekly classes and camps, our main goal is to help children develop the skills they need to succeed in life. These skills will follow them as they move through school and into the “real world”, allowing them to be able to interview confidently, negotiate effectively, and think creatively.
Through our unique copyrighted drama curriculum, Drama Kids’ students will be able to use a well-projected voice to:
- ask questions or volunteer answers
- take on leadership roles without hesitation
- make new friends
- participate easily in teams or study groups
- discuss or share ideas fluently
- negotiate successfully
- talk with adults with ease
- have the confidence to say “no” and stick up for themselves when necessary
