Workshops for Young People

Toy Theatre workshops for K.S. 3 & Upwards teach all the skills of large scale theatre production in miniature.

Workshops can take the form of:

- Set Design/Model Box creation as an aid to creating full scale shows

Or...

- Long term projects working together to create performance level miniature theatre shows.

- Create soundtracks using software such as “Audacity”.

- Design & install miniature lighting rigs or create lighting plans.

- Create artwork, stage effects and movement mechanisms for characters and scenery.

- Skills such as Voice work and Directing will also be included.

A project like this gives a taster of real life theatrical roles and careers. Participants will also learn transferable skills for film making or animation.
