Do you enjoy playing dress-up and make-believe? Do you and your friends put on plays in your living room? Do you love to make people laugh? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you!
We are inviting all those who love to perform to join us for Play-making: An Introduction to Acting & Theatre and discover the mystery & magic of the theatre!
Led by actor and drama teacher Ivy Abbott-Charles, this week-long workshop will introduce a number of styles and forms of theatre, while building trust in each other, developing confidence in performance, and having fun!
We will use fun and silly improvisation games to bring out each participant’s inner goofball, and create a space free of judgment, where everyone can come out of their shells and transform into anything they wish to be. We will explore character building, and how to embody a character through voice, text, and movement. Participants will have the opportunity to practice their creative writing through individual and collaborative creation, inventing places, businesses, scenarios, relationships, and more. We will imagine how vastly different characters might interact, what conflicts may arise and how they might be resolved.
The week will conclude with a showcase, showcasing the students’ creations and discoveries from the week – scenes, a play, monologues, improvisation, or all of the above! This workshop will guide students through the basics of theatre, while also allowing them to explore and discover their personal interests in acting and play-making!
No experience necessary!
