The Drama Geezers

Championing more drama in the classroom and at home.


The Drama Geezers are Simon Batchelor and Paul Andrew, two Drama Practitioners with a love of drama and a passion for working creatively with young people and adults. They are passionate about the power of play and the huge positive impact it can have on wellbeing. 

What sets the Drama Geezer projects apart is their unwavering commitment to inclusivity. Their approach ensures that every child can participate, encouraging the exploration of boundless creativity. By harnessing the power of drama, the Drama Geezers aim to ignite the imaginations of young learners, resulting in remarkable leaps in their abilities. 

The Drama Geezer projects immerse children in playful story worlds, turning classrooms and homes into safe spaces where everyone can play, explore and create together.


The Drama Geezers are on a mission to challenge stereotypes about male involvement in play and creativity.


They firmly believe that there is immense strength in men embracing their playful side, and they are dedicated to igniting this passion in more men.


Through the art of storytelling, play, and imaginative exploration, they aim to make a significant impact on children's development. As fathers themselves, they understand firsthand the significance of these activities.


The Drama Geezers are determined to encourage more men to become "Men that Play"
