Supporting theatre, changing lives

Dramatic Edge

Dramatic Edge is the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames’ drama showcase for secondary schools. Richmond Theatre Trust works closely with Dramatic Edge in the delivery of projects across the borough, providing mutual support.

Some highlights from our many years partnership include:

  • Clarendon School, for young people with moderate learning difficulties and autistic spectrum conditions, took part in the showcase for the first time in two years, and performed an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
  • The Diamond Rings project in 2012 celebrated the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
  • Richmond Theatre hosted a tour and meeting for teachers from Prestige College in South Africa, who will be taking part in an exchange programme and arts activities with Hampton Academy
