Welcome To Derrada Drama



Derrada Drama was established in 2004 and teaches a wide range of speech, drama and communication skills. Our focus is on developing the self-confidence and self-esteem of the student. The aim is to develop each student at their own pace and enhance their own unique style. Hence, we become individuals and not just part of a chorus.

We offer weekly speech and drama classes, starting from age 4 to adults. The students engage in drama theatre and communication games in a fun and inclusive environment.

Our communication classes include a transition and fifth year effective communication course, which focuses on controlling nerves and developing communication and presentation skills. Private tuition is also on offer to improve calming, wellbeing, presentation, communication and interview skills to adolescents and adults.

We provide a wide variety of drama and communication workshops in primary and secondary schools and colleges. These workshops range from drama, wellbeing and resilience, anti-bullying, effective communication, team building, presentation and interview skills. They can be tailored specifically to suit the client’s needs.

“I used to be so shy before I went to Drama, since then I am so much more confident and it helped me to speak in public. I love doing the exams. Angela is a great Drama teacher.”
Grace, Age 10 years

“I attended Derrada Drama for ten years and completed Speech and Drama exams up to Grade Ten, earning distinctions and medals in many of those exams. One of my greatest achievements was coming second in the All Ireland Excellence Award competition.  As a class, we competed in the Feis competitions, winning 1st place in solo drama and class improvisation. I sincerely enjoyed every minute of the classes, which was mainly down to Angela’s approach in her teaching, allowing us to have fun whilst also ensuring we were always learning. I adored performing in the show each year, as we had so much fun. Angela made sure everyone had lines so everyone always felt part of it. Attending Derrada Drama inspired me to pursue drama further and I went on to study Drama and Theatre Studies in Trinity College.”
Becky Gygax, Age 20 years

“I love going to drama every week. I love how fun and creative we can be. I always look forward to our play every year. I have been doing drama for over eight years and at the start I was quite shy and would not talk, now I am on Grade three and I am so much more confident. Angela is a great drama teacher and I love doing exams every year with her.”
Tara , Age 11 years

“Our son has been attending Derrada Drama for the last 8 years and at age 15 yrs, he continues to thoroughly enjoy Angela’s classes. He has learned so much, developed his confidence and social skills and always through a sense of fun. Angela has expertly guided him through Leinster Speech and Drama exams to Grade 7 and nominations for the Excellence Award. She also trained him for individual and group entry for the Drama Feis each year. As parents we were very proud to see him earn a second and subsequent first in the Feis. He also enjoys participating in the group’s annual show which Angela writes herself. We would be very happy to recommend Derrada Drama to any child.”
