Where are classes held?

Dramafun! classes are currently held at 6A Studios which is located at 24 Route 6A in Sandwich, Massachusetts.  Our studio is a large, bright, open space that lends itself well to the active nature of our classes.  On the "sharing" days for our youngest performers we transform the space to look more like a theatre.   Our older students who are enrolled in performance troupes perform at a variety of local theaters.


In nice weather our students enjoy rehearsal breaks on our spacious deck.
