Love drama? Or curious and never had the chance to try it?

Ideal for teenagers looking for a creative outlet these school holidays, many students (not all) will already have some experience with drama. This class helps young people gain knowledge into the disciplines of theatrical techniques and conventions, as well as practical skills in performance. This class goes further though, developing the disciplines of script work, stage techniques and play production.

• Improvisation – how to work with the unknown! Tutors will often introduce students to ‘Theatre Sports’ exercises, and develop more advanced improvisations with students
• Devised Theatre – different ways of making theatre and working in a group, as well as utilising the performance space to create interesting, dynamic prepared performance pieces
• Collaboration – different ways of working together in a group to develop performance pieces
• Scripted work – the disciplines of scripted work including how to approach scripts with vocal techniques, and how to physically dramatize the words through blocking (movement direction on stage)
• Play production – creative problem solving to produce work on stage, as well as basic elements of costuming and set
Each class begins with a vocal and physical warm-up.
The class is limited to 16 students – we believe small classes are the best way to learn drama!
It is a fun, great way to keep busy, build knowledge as well as performance skills - so why not give drama a go these school holidays?

Our tutors are qualified industry professionals and experienced teachers who introduce students to physicality and vocality, improvisation and text work. Students work together in groups and also by themselves to create pieces of theatre.
