Who we are

We employ a variety of practitioners to deliver our regular Saturday workshops, therefore our students are treated to a wide range of activities within the performing arts spectrum.
We welcome young volunteers from local schools to be part of this very special and vibrant group. We satisfy the community element of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. 
River Drama Academy summer school started in 2006 with a performance of 'Cats' and has continued each year to the present day with audiences marvelling in how much that can be achieved in just 5 days of rehearsal. We are so grateful to the Oast Theatre for making this week possible for us. 
We are supported by our Patrons - Cheryl Baker, The Oast - Tonbridge, Sarah Vezmar, Josh Hurley and East Peckham and Paddock Wood Rugby Football Club.
River Drama has performed at a number of venues in the community over the past twenty years; the Medway Hall, Hillview School Studio Theatre, Stag Theatre and the Oast Theatre.  We have also taken part in the Sevenoaks Drama Festival, Kent Youth Theatre Festival and Tonbridge Arts Festival. 
Supported by Tonbridge Lions for many years we have participated in the Tonbridge Carnival, a sponsored Lions walk and a Lions swimathon.
