Hold the Drama delivers immersive shows for children that use high-quality live music to tell stories that explore issues around mental health.

Our shows are non-verbal and trust children’s imaginations to make sense of dramatic, visual, and musical cues. We leave space for the children to discuss and articulate the plot in their own words—in the Q&A after the show, they tell us what they saw and recognised from their own experience, always finding new angles and perspectives.

Though these topics are applicable in all stages of life, our performances are aimed at KS1, 2 & 3 children in order to encourage discussion around live music and interpreting the topics and themes that music can convey.
