Our story

Founded by Robin Belfield and Susie Leppard, Limepalm Productions deliver fun, creative drama sessions for primary school aged children.

At Limepalm Drama we aim to help your child build self-confidence, communication skills and meet other children in a safe, yet informal environment.  Through creative games and imaginative play, we explore drama and movement and the associated theatre arts, developing speaking and listening skills as well as the enjoyment of storytelling and live performance.

We are not a franchise so enjoy setting our own syllabus which we can readily adapt to suit the children we are working with, according to age, ability, the size of each group and any special areas of interest.

We are also able to respond to changes in the National Curriculum supporting the children through their formal learning. In 2016, we celebrated Shakespeare’s 200th Anniversary with a fantastic Shakespeare project for all our children introducing many of them to the works of the Bard for the very first time! With poetry becoming a hot topic in the National Curriculum we spent a term working on some fabulous poems from spine tingling scary ones, to nonsense poems to traditional and international works and everything in between.

At Limepalm we’re not just about acting. We help the children discover all elements of the theatre with some children preferring to take on different roles in the projects we do (including directing, writing, stage management).
