A Play in A Week is a fun-filled drama workshop offering children aged 7-11 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.
Throughout the 5 days, the group will create their own version of the story inspired by the classic tale The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for families to enjoy. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama, and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.
Students can let their imagination run wild as they not only create their version of the story through ensemble work. Will Mole learn the ways of the river, will Toad ever get over his love of everything fast, will Ratty, Mole & Badger manage to help to get Toad Hall back from the Weasels? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved; who knows what strange and wonderful battles and characters can be created and what worlds their audiences will be transported to?
Not only will they receive guidance and help from our Facilitators but they will be given props and costumes to help create the world of their play.
It will be a few days of building fun memories, learning new skills, and making new friends.
