A Modern and Melodramatic Mystery

NB This course is now FULL. Please check out our Devised Theatre holiday course in the second week of the holidays. Bookings open now.

Course Outline:

Come and spend a week with us in the Oct holidays creating a modern, twisted, melodramatic adaption of a well-known classic.

If you love telling stories and creating characters, this holiday course will allow you to challenge yourself and immerse yourself in imaginative characters.  It’s going to be crazy busy. Come prepared to have fun and also have a commitment to performance.

Be prepared to have fun…. sing if you want to…. dance if you want to…. but most of all to act and create with other likeminded people.

We will also be making a short film/documentary with all the actors and characters which will be shown at our performance on the Friday afternoon.
