The WBJS Drama Club was formed in 2016 by Ms W Fourie. The club is committed to creating an environment where our boys are given the opportunity to express themselves, build their confidence and provide an outlet for their creativity.
By developing their emotional intelligence and verbal and non-verbal communication skills, our boys are well-rounded and prepared for life’s lessons.
Under the leadership of Ms Wendy Fourie, our boys are exposed to all aspects of drama education. Not only do they learn about improvisation, narration and role play, but also introduced to different genres. The highlight of every lesson, is no doubt, getting dressed based on a chosen character. The prop boxes and clothes are brought out and hilarious characters have entered our school hall.
Participating in the annual South African Schools’ Shakespeare Festival is one of our highlights every year, where the boys are given the opportunity to perform at the Artscape, Baxter and Fugard Theatres.
Our bi-annual productions always create great excitement amongst the boys. Their enthusiasm is electric and there is no lack of talent when they audition for acting, dancing and singing roles. not to forget our bi-yearly production.
Outings to various theatres to experience different productions, ensure that our boys understand all aspects of performance.
Our club is alive with enthusiasm and with more and more boys wanting to be part of a group of people who accept everyone the way they are; it is growing at a steady pace.
