We have more workshops for schools in your area as you may fancy something different
Creative Writing Workshops
If your group has a wild imagination, our specialist tutor will encourage them to let it run free in this workshop that inspires participants to turn fantastic thoughts into fantastic stories. This workshop is suitable for class room environments and has been very success full in prisons.
Mask Making Workshops
Our mask makers will help the participants create a professional looking mask . Get your sleeves up and get stuck in, this is messy, creative and fun. We can do paper masks which are fast and effective or we can work over a longer amount of time by taking a cast from the learners face allowing it to dry and then strengthen and painting the mask. It is also possible to have a drama workshop after the mask making workshop which gives the group a chance to perform in their masks.
Stage Fighting Workshops
How do film actors fight without getting hurt? Your group will learn all the Hollywood secrets in this workshop. A really good frolic aimed at budding stuntmen and stuntwomen. This boisterous workshop is very safe and is full of fun.
Street Theatre Workshops
If you’ve ever been to Covent Garden you’ll have seen the zany art of street theatre in full swing. Mr Dan who began his career in 96 by entertaining the public on the streets of York will pass on all the tips of the trade, working with your group towards a street-style performance of their own.
Physical Comedy Workshops
A hands-on performance workshop with an emphasis on humour and slapstick. It might look easy to be a clown, but it takes real insight to do it well. The group will explore their own body language and explore exercises, where the actors change their posture and facial expressions to develop funny comedy characters.
