This summer we challenge you to create a brand new piece of theatre to be performed at Tobacco Factory Theatres!
Working with highly experienced theatre practitioners children will develop their drama skills through games, imaginative play, role play and storytelling. Each day, children will be encouraged to expand their self-confidence, communication ability and team work skills. The days will be fun and creative and will involve a range of physical and craft activities.
The sessions are led by skilled theatre makers with strong backgrounds in creating work with and for young people.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Working with a professional theatre maker and a creative team, you will rehearse here at the theatre each day. The sessions will be full of games, play and creativity, where you will work as an ensemble to create a new piece of theatre. Bring your ideas, enthusiasm and energy!
The Summer School will include:
- Fun and energising warm up games
- Voice work
- Acting and ensemble movement
- Trust and teambuilding
- Rehearsals for performance
Please note, we have more than one workshop facilitator working on each summer school. Therefore most of the time children will be working in smaller groups with those similar in age, for example 9-10 year olds and 11-12 year olds.
