Have you ever wondered what a theatre director does, how a play is rehearsed, or how a stage and its lighting and sound systems work? Have you ever just wanted to understand a bit more about what’s involved in making theatre?
In celebration of the skills and work of Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company, we are offering five free sessions, during five Friday lunchtimes throughout 2013, which explore the art and craft of putting on a play, for and with you, our audience.
In just an hour, a director will explore a scene from a play or short sketch and invite the audience to contribute to the creative process. From how the actors should use the text, to their positioning on stage, the costumes, props, lighting and sound, the five sessions will invite comment and opinions from the audience, as we explore the way in which professional theatre is made in Nottingham.
These sessions will be fun, free and full of insight. You can even buy a delicious lunch from the CAST deli and bring it into the auditorium with you. Please book by calling the Box Office on 0115 941 9419.
