Kids Acting Holiday Workshop

2 days | Ages 8-11 | Parramatta | 17 + 18 April 2024


Workshop Overview

What if Unicorns ruled the world?
What if Harry Potter turned evil?
What if you and your grandmother swapped bodies for a day?

In this 2-day holiday workshop, students will write and perform short scenes addressing their most fascinating What If. They will brainstorm fantastical worlds, imagine new realities, and rewrite history to see just what the world would look like if they got to design it!

Over the course of the two days, they will brainstorm, draft, write, perform and direct scenes and using simple props, costume and music, they will share these new pieces of writing with their peers. Parents and friends are invited to attend the performances.
