About Family Play in a Day (CSC269)

Get creative as family and flex those performance muscles as you work with other families to produce a short play in just one day!

What will you learn on this course?

Working together as a team you will learn to be more creative and playful in this low-pressure, high-enjoyment class that cultivates a fun, friendly and supportive environment.

You’ll experience a range of theatre games and devising activities, as well as the chance to deliver a short sharing to an invited audience at the end of the day.

This course is taught by Lucy Poulson, a Birmingham based theatre practitioner and improvisor with extensive experience working with young people and their families on scripted and non-scripted drama.

Expect lots of games, movement and most of all, laughs!

Who is this course for?

This one-day workshop is for young people age 8 - 14 years old and their parent or guardian. All will be invited to participate as equals!

The course is accessible for people of all abilities. Parents and guardians work alongside their children and all classes are planned to meet the specific needs of the group. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to consider key age developments, materials being used, and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

There is a one-hour break for lunch, not provided.

A water bottle for during the class would also be great and please wear clothes and shoes which are comfortable for moving around in.

Please feel free to invite friends and family to attend your sharing. Invited guests should arrive at reception 30 minutes before the end of the session. The Artist Tutor will collect you from there.
