To ask if there is something in this idea or not

I have two children, ds 3 and dd is 4 months. I love them and wouldn't be without them but am sometimes frustrated when I can't do the things I used to love, the main one being going to the theatre. I know I will get back to it when they are older but there are lots of events, courses and performances that are passing me by and I can't go because dh is away and dd is breasfed and won't take a bottle.

Anyway I am also a drama worked and I was wondering if a drama group for mums would be something that people would be interested in. I would go to something like that but then theatre is my passion so maybe it wouldn't attract others. I was thinking a drama group that you could bring your babies/toddlers along to and work on whatever takes the groups fancy - script work/impro anything at all.

Assuming I could get a cheap/free space etc do you think there would be any interest?

Surely you'd need a creche or the group would never get to work on anything?

not me, neep, but others should oblige

I would love something like that. I really miss theatre and also being in a choir and it will be years before I can do it again sad

It would be ideal if there were a creche, just not sure how I would go about setting that up. Perhaps it is too complicated to organise but just thought it would be nice if there were something theatre related that people with young children could participate in.

x post. That is how I feel TheSnickeringFox, that it will be a while before I can really participate in this kind of thing again and I miss it!

I think it's a brilliant idea. I would go. I trained as an actor and miss it badly.

That's a fantasic idea. I would definitely go to something like that and my DS would love the time spent with other DCs too.
I've never performed or written for the stage but I do love going to the theatre (not as regularly as I'd like anymore).
If you're in Gtr Manchester count me in!

I might ask my health visitor what she thinks, she might have some ideas.

Sorry up in Scotland here!

Lovely idea! Good luck with it.

I went to a baby yoga class where the genius woman who ran it would segue between stuff for babies and stuff for adults when the babies were occupied. Sometimes the two were combined. It wasn't a franchise with "moves", she was just very good. Still is.

A drama class with something for attendant babies thrown in could be very entertaining all round.
