Playtime Productions is owned and run by Valerie Warwick, who currently resides in Redland City, Queensland, Australia. Born in England, Valerie Warwick had a strong background in the performing arts and an equal love of writing. In her early adult years, she spent time between three differing occupations, acting, fashion modelling and writing for two weekly newspapers. She went on to run the Modelling and Deportment School at Walmar House, Regent Street, London. Valerie married an Australian and had two children before arriving in Australia in the early eighties.
Our Creative and Original Drama Resources

Since then, Valerie has written and co-written drama books, plus acted as publisher for other authors. Playtime Productions has published various genres of performance work, Character Recitals, Skits, Christmas Musical, Poetry Books, Plays for Younger Performers and Plays for Senior Students and Adults, as well as Early Childhood Teacher Resources, and Scripts on Demand.

RYAG is not a weekly lesson, it is a three-hourly Drama Workshop held monthly throughout the year, instructing all genres of performance, stage, radio, mime, improvisation, public speaking, directing and reading-aloud and storytelling.
