Event Information

Is MAC haunted? Use your imagination and work together to create a dramatic spooky performance in a day, supernatural spooks, creepy characters and spells to ward them off. 

What will you learn on this course?

On this one day course children will learn about drama through fun games and exercises that will introduce them to different performance skills.

The areas covered will include tableaux, acting, movement, voice and character. Participants will be encouraged to be creative and use their imagination to make stories and their own short scenes with a spooky twist.

Games and play will be used to find interesting ways of using the body and creating characters. The students will then be encouraged to incorporate these into short scenes which they will work on in groups.

This course will also enable the children to develop their confidence, creativity, group work, speaking, listening and performance and presentation skills.   

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to beginners, children who are doing drama for the first time as well as returners who have attended the class previously. Parents are not expected to accompany children on this course. All our staff are DBS checked.

Elements of this class are quite physically demanding. The course may be accessible for children with disabilities. The tutor has level 1 British Sign Language, we can provide a learning support worker and a parent or carer may assist their child if required. The room is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account 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.
