In this course, we will be putting together our own play, performing it at the end of the week! There will be opportunities for both devising and script writing, as well as exploring other drama skills such as mime, improvisation and physical theatre. Alongside this, we will be exploring the off stage aspects of theatre, such as theatre marketing and costume design! The course will develop useful acting and performance skills, and it will help to boost your confidence. No experience or pre-preparation necessary.
