We are excited to launch the Harrogate Theatre Discover programme. During lockdown and beyond we will be exploring what theatre can be when it is created by people in different places, how we can share our creativity away from the theatre building and discovering new performance styles. We can’t wait to get started and connect with you all.
You will get two, five week blocks of activity. There will be a new pre-recorded drama workshop sent out for each age band over four weeks. The fifth week will be a ‘live’ workshop for each age group to share what they’ve been doing and to take part in activities together. These workshops will be themed so all age groups can contribute to a youth theatre wide project in a way we haven’t been able to do before.
The first five weeks will be themed ‘Creative Connections’ and we will be developing our performance writing skills in lots of different, exciting ways ending in a letter writing challenge.
The second five weeks will be themed ‘Time Capsule’ and we will be inspired to make a performance about this moment in 2020.
A private youtube link to the weekly video will be emailed out each Tuesday along with any additional resources you will need, starting on Tuesday 21 April.
The live workshops will be on Saturday 23 May and Saturday 4 July 10am – 11am.
Age recommendation: 8 -10
