What People Say About Us

'The Redbridge Drama Centre has been immensely important in the development and well being of our children.  The Saturday morning clubs have enabled them to make friends, build confidence and develop skills in a professional, warm and safe environment. This cultural resource is amazing.  You can get to see Fringe shows from all over the country from award winning Theatre companies in a small and intimate venue that is close to home.  I don't know what we would do without it.'   - Workshop Member.

'I would like to say a massive thank you for a terrific week of workshopping! The performance of Frozen this afternoon was brilliant and yet again we were amazed at the standard of delivery after just one week of rehearsals.  My daughters loved participating and it has definitely helped their confidence.  Your teachers, Gemma and David, were very approachable and made it so much fun!  If anyone is wondering whether to send their child on one of the holiday workshops, I can highly recommend them.'  - Workshop Parent.

'Too easy to be negative about arts and current climate (etc).. then you go to @RedbridgeDrama and realise that there's hope. #support' - Bootworks Theatre Company

'Am sitting in my office doing some work and am cheered up by the fabulous singing from the children at drama club upstairs.  Can you pass on my thanks to your two teachers.  They are just brilliant with our children and I know they have a ball each week.

Just thought I would say it as often we forget to say the good things that matter, they really are making a difference to our children's lives and enjoyment of school'  - Primary Headteacher

'For the past six years, we have been working with RDC: running workshops, performing and creating new work.  This professional relationship became a vital part of the way we work.  RDC have become a second home for us, a place where we can develop and perform new work in a supporting environment, and where we can get involved with some of the great educational work RDC provide in the local community.'  - Theatre Ad Infinitum

'I wanted to say how grateful I am for the fantastic time our Y5 pupils had when visiting the Drama Centre recently. Practically all of the children were new to theatre as a whole.  They were greeted in an exceptionally professional and very friendly manner, sat in comfort as they were a little early, and treated to a choc-ice.  Touches like this are not to be under-estimated, as it put the children immediately at their ease and ready to enjoy the show.

The show itself was fabulous-the children were mesmerised, the quality of the acting and staging were of a very high quality and the overall experience was incredible.  The children have been inspired by the experience. We will most definitely be visiting the Drama Centre again soon, in fact are already booked in for Christmas.  A wonderful experience, many, many thanks.' - Primary Headteacher

"I love Redbridge Drama Centre. I've never seen anywhere or anything like it. There is a class for every age and the team of directors there have such an incredible knack of finding the very best performance in each child. But it's not just about the acting, it's the sense of happiness you can see it gives every child who goes there. They literally all come out smiling!" - RDC Parent

"As an alumni from back in the mists of time (1970s) it's so heartwarming to see the RDC has gone from strength to strength. This organisation literally changed lives, it certainly did mine. Long may you thrive and prosper... Hugh's legacy is one any man would be proud of. He was a great and lovely man." - RDC Member

"As a venue for drama, the Redbridge Drama Centre was very surprising. Looking at the exterior you wouldn’t think of it as a theatre, but don’t let this put you off. Inside, the centre was eccentric and inviting — highly equipped with large spaces. Definitely worth the tube ride (in my case) to South Woodford." - Everything Theatre Review

"I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your support, we really couldn't have down this without your kindness. Once again you have really impacted and help nurture another artist and their craft. You guys are really something special!" - Artists4Artists

"I've never felt more comfortable in a performance space than I did at the RDC [except for the Drama studio at my high school, of course!] . What's great about the RDC is the fresh talent that it exudes - performers/actors are also real people and the RDC provides a platform for growing, young actors to flourish and bloom - not only theatrically, but individually as people.

If you are a keen dramatist, then check out the Youth programme they have on offer - I can say without a doubt you'll have some of the best guidance ever!" - Workshop Member
