Coronation Street star makes sure drama is on the curriculum

Jacqueline Chadwick the star of stage and screen is continuing with her goal to teach drama to children across the world

Jacqueline Chadwick the star of stage and screen is continuing with her goal to teach drama to children across the world.

Chadwick moved to Campbell River three years ago and has already passed 200 Campbell River students through her academy, and thousand in the United Kingdom.

The academy has also staged several performances at the tidemark theatre to packed audiences.

“I was alarmed to hear drama is not part of the curriculum in many schools in Campbell River,” Chadwick said. “It’s such a vital part of children’s education.

“I have had a wonderful career from my tuition and I have successfully trained several students who have started amazing careers in acting.

“Our classes are for children aged 6 to 16 years old and I teach the classes myself. Our sessions cover everything from confidence building to stage skills, television and film work and musical theatre. All children are welcome no matter what experience they have it’s a fun relaxed atmosphere.”

Fall classes will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays at the sportsplex contact the academy at or call 250-923-2863.
