About

The Drama Circle specialises in individual or group acting training and workshops within schools, other educational establishments and theatres; our aim is to spread our passion for drama, acting and the theatre!

The Drama Circle was founded by Claire Haymes; Claire has performed at The Everyman Theatre, Liverpool, directed at The Lowry Theatre, Salford and has worked at the BBC. Claire still acts professionally providing students with a greater knowledge into the field of acting, castings and audition techniques. As well as an honours degree in Drama, Claire holds qualifications with both LAMDA and The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Claire is passionate about providing:

– quality drama training for children in the North West
– guidance for adults, whether they have a passion for acting or whether it be to gain confidence when public speaking, delivering a presentation or attending a meeting
– encouraging students to be creative, working in an environment that encourages confidence on and off stage.

The Drama Circle works with other skilled and creative teachers, performers, directors, theatres and writers who compliment our work with other skills. Just a few of our affiliations are listed below:

– The Dance Company Workshops
– Ella Carmen Greenhill, writer for The Everyman Theatre, Paines Plough Theatre Company, Channel 4 and the BBC.
