The Show Must Go On Workshop
Working with visual artist Eliza-Jane Gilchrist we present a fun, ‘theatre-making’ workshop where the participants create an exciting show and perform it before an audience.
The process is low-stress, supportive and enjoyable. Theatre is team effort and although performing is always a little nerve-making, it is meant to be fun.
The participants are split into two groups; a 'making group’ and an ‘acting group’. One works with Eliza-Jane Gilchrist to construct masks/puppets/set while the other works with Mark Penzak on impro, staging and script enactment. We then swap groups so that everyone experiences the full range of activities.
Finally, we present the performance to an audience which could be the rest of the school or parents and family.
The Show Must Go On is a flexible programme that can be adapted to suit a wide range of allocated time and objectives. It's a great introduction to performing, a practical way for students to learn cooperation and experience many of the skills that go to make a production.
