BEDLAM YOUTH THEATRE (St Austell)

SATURDAYS

THE DRAMA STUDIO, PENRICE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, ST AUSTELL

KICKSTART (7 - 12 year olds) 10.00 a.m. - midday

These workshops are designed to teach young actors the rudiments of stagecraft - how to feel at home on stage, how to listen, how to give and take focus. The emphasis is on confidence-building and capturing the imagination. The theatre games and exercises covered involve aspects of voice, character, improvisation, environments and chorus work.

 

THEATRE OF DREAMS (12 - 18 year olds) 12.30 p.m. - 2.30 p.m.

As this age range is capable of more focussed work for longer periods, these classes are biased less towards games and more towards serious exercises, although there is still a strong emphasis on enjoyment! Work focuses on text, mime, movement, characterisation, voice, and improvisation.
