On Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th August there is a 2-day children’s drama workshop at Kelvin Players Studio Theatre in Bishopston.
The workshops will give kids the chance to take an exciting and creative journey into the world of drama and performance by exploring and then sharing a short performance piece based on the playful world of Cat In The Hat’s popular musical, Seussical.
The workshop offers younger children the opportunity to develop the building blocks of drama and performance. Throughout the 2 days the group will explore the world of the play; develop characters, create soundscapes, form scenes and tell stories in order to build their creation into a performance which will be shared at the end of the 2 days. This process is designed to develop creativity, build confidence and help with communication skills and teamwork. But more than that is designed for the children to have a really fun few days and introduce them to the world of theatre performance.
Led by experienced drama facilitators, the children will create the world of the play using musical instruments, costumes and props. They will not only perform in the play but, throughout the creative process, learn to share ideas and work with others to bring the story to life. Through speaking, listening and using imagination, children will build their understanding of how to dramatise a story and present a finished production for an audience of family and friends to enjoy.
Both sessions on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th August take place from 9am-12 noon. The cost is £45 per child, plus booking fee.
All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.
Sign your child up for two days of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends!
