There's no adventure like a Monkey Drama adventure!
Monkey Drama was created in 2013 by Alana Myant, who passionately believes that Drama and the Creative Arts can have a positive and lasting effect on our social, personal and emotional self. Particularly when used with young people. Alana has a BA Honours Degree in Contemporary Performing Arts and an MA in Dramatic Writing and has spent time researching the benefits of creativity on young people. Alana has combined her skills in drama, music and script writing with her experience as a Youth Worker and Engagement Officer to help children build their confidence and self-esteem and to use their imaginations to explore their worlds creatively.
After working with socially disengaged youths as a Development Tutor, Working as a Freelance Drama Practitioner, and then working in a Further Education establishment, Alana decided, while on maternity leave with her first child that she wanted to infuse her love of working with young people and her passion for drama to create the perfect blend of fun and developmental classes for young children…and it was then that Monkey Drama was born.
Monkey Drama is about exploring imaginations. Finding
out about ourselves and our worlds creatively. Learning
how to be confident and understand our place in this big
We achieve this at Monkey Drama by taking children
on wonderful adventures of the imagination. Where we
meet many different characters, visit many different
places, see and believe whatever we want...because play
is so important and imagination is everything!
"The themes are different each week and kept a secret until the start of each class! The children can engage at their own level and the sessions are above all else, fun and creative! There are great props, characters, stories, problems to solve and skills to learn along the way! The children get a certificate at the end of each session to show what they have “Learned, Imagined and Explored”. (spotlight article, Families Magazine, Glasgow)
