About Us
Background

Mis-Cellaneous was born Mis-Cellaneous Arts & Creative Education, in 2004 as an initiative to celebrate the importance of individual voice and the uniqueness each person brings to life and the stage. The word miscellaneous, when used as an adjective means "a mixed composition", as a noun it means "various kinds, many sides", encapsulates our purpose and mission.

 

Our hands-on, minds-on approach celebrates individuals without categories; our workshops are collaborative as we embrace students' ideas as the inspiration for performance development - no two performances are ever the same.  Our methods help to develop and boost confidence through drama, in an innovative learning environment that promotes learning through laughter.

 

Our exciting start delivered parent and student workshops and drama clubs at New Oscott Primary School. This enabled parents to be a part of their child's learning group and experience. The success of this platform helped to develop our service of offering workshops around SEAL, PSHE and Citizenship syllabuses, alongside various texts and plays, across the Midlands. As praised in a BBC Community News Feature, we provided fun workshops in speech, drama, and creative writing, "allowing young people to stretch their imagination".

Today, Mis-Cellaneous delivers Drama In Education workshops to schools and community organizations across the West Midlands; Community Youth Theatre and Faith-Based Theatre productions in Reading, London, Birmingham Mac, Mount Zion, New Jerusalem, and The Bethel Convention Centre.  

Our approach offers every individual creative opportunity in which to A.R.T. - to Act, Reflect and Transform. A.R.T. uses drama with theatre techniques, costumes, mini-scripts, and music, as tools to develop confident performance skills, both for the stage and in everyday life.

​The way that we teach drama differs from traditional programmes, rather than following rigid structures, our sessions shift the focus to give creative freedom to individuals. Workshop activities are designed to embrace participants' ideas for performance and to provide them with transferable life skills.

 

I am passionate about the development of Mis-Cellaneous with its A.R.T & Character Education development. Mis-Cellaneous's updated creative workshop programme continues to enhance schools' Student Enrichment cross-curricular programmes and support the delivery of Character Education.

 

At Mis-Cellaneous, we believe that students can achieve all sorts of goals in all sorts of ways, and strive to help them to experience personal development through drama. Mis-Cellaneous aims to provide creative learning experiences that enhance the well-being of students and develop their knowledge and skills in communication, collaboration, and creative thinking and practice.
