This November, we will begin running acting classes for children aged four to twelve. The course will run for 5 weeks (one hour once a week on your chosen day/time) and culminate in a showcase performance at the Doncaster Playhouse on the weekend of December 14, so friends and family can see what we’ve been working towards.
These classes are set up to be a fun and challenging introduction to acting (and a bit of singing) with a focus on the kind of performance we do at Playhouse Pantomimes. Classes will feature a mixture of performance rehearsal, skill building and games. Classes will take place the MC Square Community Centre (the big building right next to the Doncaster Playhouse).
ROUGH CLASS STRUCTURE:
Week One: Getting to know one another, creating a safe, fun, team environment, drama games
Weeks Two to Four: Drama games/warm-ups, begin learning script, with a key skill focus each week, work on learning a song, developing understanding of rhythm, pitch, and performance, end class with a drama game.
Week Five: Rehearsal of final performance, performance of the work to other classes
Day of Performance (date/time TBC at first class): Warm-ups, final full run through of performance, performance!
