HOLIDAY CLUB & WORKSHOP
We have been running holiday drama clubs for the last 4 years. They are fun, relaxed workshops where the young people explore various drama techniques and put on a performance on the last day for invited family and friends. Below are some galleries of some recent workshops, we hope you enjoy looking through the images.
Collingwood From 6th - 10th August 2018 we developed a new short play based in a totalitarian world where a dictator has taken control of the U.K. Some brilliant performances and a great fun week.
Peter Pan From 10th - 14th August 2015 we ran a great workshop in Ely where we dissected Peter Pan and then devised our own version. It was such a fun week and the end product was fantastic.
EMPTIES The final summer school of 2014 turned out to be more of a physical theatre piece. A new short piece of theatre called EMPTIES. The piece was filmed and we will have the footage up here as soon as it is all edited, but in the meantime, here are a few photos from what was one of my favorite holiday pieces.
MARCH JULY SUMMER HOLIDAY 2014: In the last week of July we ran a five day workshop where we looked at fairytales and how they might change if they were set in todays world. It was a great week and the young people came up with loads of great ideas.
ELY EASTER HOLIDAY 2014: From the 9th - 11th April we ran a three day Easter Holiday Workshop in our base in Ely, The Cathedral Education and Conference Centre. As this year will be the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth we decided to look at a modernised language version of the Mechanicals scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream. We all had a fantastic time and the show at the end was brilliant.
MARCH EASTER HOLIDAY 2014: On the 16th and 17th April we worked with a great bunch of young people. We stuck with Shakespeare and A Midsummer Night's Dream, only this time we did a very condensed version of the entire play. It was a huge challenge to rehearse this in two days and the group did brilliantly, culminating in a really fun performance at the end.
