* Performance opportunities for the kids

Last Saturday I took my daughter to try out two interesting classes offered by Julie Curran - a qualified drama teacher from the UK who has been preparing students for the LAMDA exams for the last 9 years.

The first is the Estepona Youth Theatre group, which is organizing a performance of a Christmas Wizard of Oz in December. The second is a training program offered to children who are interested in taking the LAMDA exam (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).

We need just a few more students to join the group, so come on in to give it a try. Click here to read more...
