I’ve just become a shareholder and director in Pyjama Drama, a fantastic company that offers drama, movement and creative play classes to two – seven year olds. A bit of a departure from what I’ve been doing until now? Well yes and no. I’ve always loved drama and although I didn’t take it any further than A-level, I’m completely convinced of the value that children get out of learning drama skills; namely creativity, communication and confidence. I should probably make it absolutely clear, that this isn’t about teaching children how to become a ‘star’ a la Britain’s Got Talent, it’s about helping them to develop their creativity and imagination.
Pyjama Drama has been going a couple of years and has 11 franchises across the UK. There is an absolute ton of potential and it’s really exciting to come onboard and help grow and shape the business. As we’re still effectively a start-up and everything will be ploughed back into the company, I will be carrying on with my other work for now and dividing my time between the two. Hopefully some of my pr and social media skills will help us to raise the profile of the business.
I’ll still be keeping this blog running but do have a look at Pyjama Drama, (we’ll be giving the site a complete overhaul very soon) and if you know anyone who has drama skills and is looking for a new venture, then send them our way.
