February Half Term 15th-19th February
Monday to Friday
From Stage to Zoom
This February half term we are running TWO week long workshops
based on a modern play “Bright. Young. Things.
and a classic play, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Ashley is leading the modern play and Shelley is leading the Shakespeare
It will be 100% on Zoom so you can join wherever you live
Each day, each group will meet in the morning to do a warm up, drama games and set up the days tasks and challenges. They will then come back together in the afternoon to share what they’ve discovered and created at home and round off the day with more drama games, impro and acting exercises. No more than 2-3 hours spent on Zoom each day but lots of creativity and learning.
The week will end with a performance for family on Zoom on the Friday.
To take part it costs £80 for the week, per play
So choose your play and email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07886 020923 to book
Bright. Young. Things.
Based on a reality television show, six remarkable – and remarkably young – geniuses are competing for the coveted Golden Brain Trophy and the title “Britains Brainiest Child” As the contestants battle it out round after round, the pressure mounts, the spotlight gets harsher, and each is faced with questions they were never expecting. Who will win and who will lose – and what exactly does winning mean anyway
This is a funny, fast-paced play about identity, truth and the challenge of finding out who you really are.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
Viola and her twin brother Sebastian have been shipwrecked; each believes the other to be drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man and, under the name of Cesario, gets a job as a servant for the Duke, Orsino. For young people of all ages, this play is a brilliant route into looking at dramatic irony and comic characters, such as Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek,as well as looking at a range of themes including identity, love and deception
