Join us for a drama holiday camp with a difference, creating a play in a week!
Start the summer holidays with some fun!
Using drama games and activities we will create a show completely from scratch, finishing up with a performance on Friday afternoon to perform to family and friends.
No experience necessary, just bring along your enthusiasm!
We’ll be using a whole host of fun drama games and techniques each morning to help build confidence and bring out the creativity of the young people participating. We’ll then move on to focus on various performance skills such as; movement, puppetry, acting exercises, creating characters, devising, singing and more.
Afternoons will be spend working on our performance piece for the end of the week. This will be a retelling of traditional myths and tales which parents/carers will be invited to watch on Friday afternoon from 3-3.30pm.
