Malachi Drama Projects service

About ‘Malachi Drama Projects service’

We work with a year group over the course of a term to cast, rehearse, produce and stage a spectacular show. When the children perform the show at the end of term there is not a dry eye in the house and many parents see their children in a new light. Our weekly hour long sessions include circle time, when we discuss the issues raised in the musical. Studies, and our own experience, tell us that children will normalise their family situation, however challenging it is. The projects give them a safe space to explore their feelings, begin to understand how their family circumstances are affecting them and begin to look at coping strategies.

This service is part of the organisation called Malachi
