The Workshops

This is your chance to get stuck in! If you've always wondered what it's like to be backstage, writing scripts, rehearsing actors, warming up - or if you've wanted to try your hand at treading the boards - then look no further! We have tailored each eye-opening workshop and session to enable you to find out and get hands on experience in a safe, fun, learning environment. We encourage those of all ages and with all levels of experience to jump in and give it a try - our trained, crafted actors provide something for everyone. 

Best combined before or after a show our workshops and sessions are ideal for small to large groups and we also provide personalised stand-alone classes. 


Questions and Answer Session - 30 mins

A great opportunity for our audiences to quiz our actors. Find out what it's really like to prepare and rehearse for a show. Think of it as your very own 'behind the scenes' interview - ask some gripping questions and they might offer some interesting stories and anecdotes. We love being asked about our work and discussing some of the themes that occur within the plays. Be prepared form some unexpected answers! 


Directing Workshop - 75 mins

This is where we throw ourselves into the deep end and hand the reins over to you! With direction from our professional actors we help guide you through the process of producing your own mini-shows. From script creation to directional top tips and tricks, we have it all covered. Let the show begin!


Singing Workshop - 45 mins

Time to dust down those vocal cords and unleash your bedroom diva! With accompanying music, worksheets and top tips from our performers, this will have you humming for weeks! The session will cover warm-up exercises, professional singing techniques and a range of songs. 


Drama Workshop - 45 mins

A perfect all-rounder for those wanting a little bit of everything. Try your hand at some of the games and activities that our actors use to help develop their performance techniques. This workshop is guaranteed to have you smiling and giggling as you journey though our specially prepared drama class.
