What's in the Summer Programme?
A diverse range of weekly courses for all ages, 6 to 18+, running throughout July and August. We offer Art, Drama, Stage Combat and a chance to learn about Stage Management and Technical Theatre.
We offer an extensive programme of drama-related activities over the summer holidays. There are 4 weeks of workshops, which run from Monday – Saturday. Parents are invited to observe the final class on the Saturday morning. It’s not a frantic, pressurised scramble to produce a ‘show’ in 5 days – rather, we value the quality of learning which the week presents and the opportunity for young people to learn more about the skills required to be an actor.
Our workshops include a variety of fun drama related activities and will include exercises in acting, movement and voice work. Our younger participants also take part in theatre design workshops; designing and producing artwork to decorate the theatre for the end of week performance (they can then take this art work home).
The emphasis of our summer programme is on learning! We offer a fun, encouraging environment for young people to grow in confidence, meet new friends and learn new skills!
The theme for our Summer Programme this year was ‘Home’. The theme allowed young people to explore different interpretations of Home from Landmarks across Northern Ireland to Northern Irish Playwrights, while older classes had the opportunity to devise their own pieces of theatre based on what home means to them.
