Short-Theatre-Bites: Holiday course with Jo Rogers (postponed to Oct)

Course Outline

Young Actors: Reflecting their world through their craft

By working with contemporary stories that enlighten and entertain, young actors and creatives will adapt, devise, create, improvise, short-theatre-bites. We will work on story development, the importance of story and authenticity of portraying characters within story.

In addition, you will explore voice, physical performance, song, and monologues and soliloquy.

The opportunity to have fun with costume / props – exploring the aspect of bringing a character to life through stylistic choices, as well as brainstorming design ideas for characters within their short-theatre-bites.

Collaboration is an essential element for an actor to learn. All young actors will have lead and support roles in the many short-theatre-bites that we create.
