Days: Monday 25th October to Tuesday 26th October 2021
Times: 9.30 am to 1 pm (with performance at 12.30 on Tuesday)
Bristol Academy of Drama are delighted to be offering infant school children the opportunity to take an exciting and creative journey into the world of Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.
The workshop offers younger children the opportunity to develop the building blocks of drama and performance. Throughout the 2 days, the group will explore the world of the book; develop characters, create soundscapes, form scenes, and tell stories in order to build their creation into a performance which will be shared at the end of the 2 days. This process is designed to develop creativity, build confidence and help with communication skills and teamwork. But more than that is designed for the children to have a really fun few days and introduce them to the world of theatre performance.
Led by our experienced drama facilitators, the children will build their new theatrical world by using costumes and props. They will not only perform in the play but, throughout the creative process, learn to share ideas and work with others to bring the story to life. Through speaking, listening, and using imagination, children will build their understanding of how to dramatise a story and present a finished production for an audience of family and friends to enjoy.
So sign up now for 2 days of building fun memories, learning new skills, and making new friends.
