Easter Course 4 - 8 April 2011 (11-16 year olds)

Published on

Easter Course 2011

Our annual Easter Course is fast approaching. Final preparations are under way and it will definitely be an exciting week. I will be having my last planning meeting on Thursday with our composer Richard Kenwood-Herriot. Richard will be accompanying our daily energising class and creating some electrifying music to add to the drama as we learn stage fighting techniques. He will also write an original piece of music throughout the week to accompany the scene from the production as we work.

In only 5 days this course will take you through the creative process running up to a brand new production! On day one we will write our scenario which will be based on two groups of people who don’t see eye to eye. The story will progress and unfold throughout the week. On the final day we will work with a professional technician who will add the drama of lighting to the production which you will perform in our brand new studio theatre.

This is a great opportunity for you to spend your school holidays doing something creative and fun with like-minded people.  The course runs between 4-8 April and there are still some places available so book yours soon! You can download an application form from our website.

I look forward to seeing you here!
