Practical Workshops

We offer a variety of fun and engaging theatre workshops all year round. These can be delivered at your school or here at the Playhouse, at competitive prices. Choose from:

Physical Theatre

This practical workshop explores how to create theatre that doesn’t rely only on words. Students will explore ensemble and movement techniques, and learn how to express thoughts, ideas, and whole stories through predominantly visual means.

Devising Theatre

This practical workshop explores how groups can create their own performances, without relying on a writer. Using collaborative approaches, stimulating starting points and improvisation, students will create a short piece of drama.

Improvisation

This practical workshop will explore techniques intended to free the creativity of the students and help them to become effective and collaborative improvisers.

Performing Shakespeare

Using an ensemble approach to explore character and motivation, themes and ideas, language, and the plays in performance, we encourage participants to experience the play on their feet, to read the words actively and to articulate their discoveries confidently.
