Children acting at Rondo Drama Club

Rondo Drama Club and Summer School

Truly Creative Theatre For Young People

Our Drama Club and Summer School are two truly unique experiences, where your children are encouraged to share their creative ideas and work together to devise a totally original play. They then get the chance to perform it on the famous Rondo stage!

At the Rondo, we are committed to raising your child’s self-esteem and confidence in an environment that is fun, friendly and nurturing. We let the children come up with the ideas, so that they go away with a sense of truly having created something of their own.

Both the Drama Club and Summer School sessions are run by Paulo Baigent, an experienced director, theatre educator and workshop leader. For more information, contact Paulo directly at

Rondo Intern Director

Since 2012 the Rondo has offered a paid, year-long Directing Internship to individuals wishing to further their professional directing career. Each year, a successful applicant will learn the ins and outs of running a theatre whilst receiving mentoring in directing. They will get the chance to hone their skills and experiment in the theatre, and will direct a production of their choice at the Rondo in the Summer.
