Napier Spring

Programme Information

September 2019

Dear Parent / Caregiver,

Thank you for booking our 5-day Spring Programme

7th - 11th October 2019, at '1024 Duke Street' Hastings...

What to expect Monday - Friday...


Sydney based producer Megan Hanley will be joined by D.R.E.A.M. tutoring staff William Atkin, Scotty Smith, Karen Taiapa and assistant Alexandra Binns.  We will each tutor workshops toward the up and coming series VIII. 'The Wind in the Willows' 'sharing of work' presentation.




We focus on daily warm - up exercises to funky soundtracks, storytelling with lots of fun to be had while learning creative skill - based techniques. The programme is an intensive study of the arts and is a 40-hr. process engaging the children from day 1 to day 5.

We work to understand character roles and artistic direction in detail.  Teachers will take children through various workshops in drama, pantomime and film segments, with dance and stage direction.

In this D.R.E.A.M. programme series VIII. we feature a rendition of Kenneth Graeme's masterpiece 'The Wind in the Willows' offering something different to extend children who are returning to the programme.

Parents Contract:

  • Registration Forms are important to bring us updated health information and any requirements allowing us to provide the best possible care for your child.  Please assure it is filled out and returned before the programme commencement date.

  • Drop off and Collection: You will be asked to sign a 'Sign in and Out' form each day and provide information of anyone you assign to collect your child on your behalf.

  • Code of conduct: We ask you to kindly take time before the holiday programme to explain to your child / ren the 'code of conduct' that would see them behave in a manner that allows them to learn yet have fun in our safe and exciting environment.

We invite parents to 'a sharing of work' on our final day.  Please arrange to be there by 4.00pm.  This is really not to be missed, as children love to show you their progress.

What to Bring Each Day: Be sure to bring morning and afternoon tea, a drink and a lunch pack. No nuts please! Please advise your child / ren not to share foods as a safety measure toward allergies etc...


What to Wear: Comfortable clothes to move in, tank tops and leggings are good, a leotard or shorts help to put costumes over top.  Runners, dance shoes or bare feet are fine.  Please dress children in black, white or neutral colours for the 'sharing of work'.


Please don't let children bring their own toys or jewellery to the programmes - it only distracts them and there's a risk they can be lost.



Administration & Fees:


9.00am - 5.00pm: Per Child = $275.00 this fee has been sponsored by Hanley Productions along with Ministry of Social Development and Hastings District Council - Creative NZ Community Scheme.

Photography & Media Kits: We capture magic moments during the workshops and 'sharing of work' performance as photographic memorabilia with your own DVD of the 'sharing of work performance' as a debrief for the children. NB: This service is complimentary, please advise us if you do not want your child to appear in our photography.

Scholarships: We offer scholarships to outstanding children who show promise and exhibit supportive behaviour to cast mates, those who help create a healthy working environment for the performing arts during the workshops.  Scholarships are announced at the 'sharing of work'.

Congratulations D.R.E.A.M. scholarship winners, second time

awarded and now 'International Scholarship' contenders...



On behalf of the spring faculty we look forward to sharing special

              moments with your children these holidays.


Yours Sincerely,


   Megan Hanley
