Summer Holiday Workshops
Welcome to this year’s summer holiday workshops with Playbox Theatre, staged at our beautiful theatre, The Dream Factory, in the heart of Warwick. We are proud to offer children and young people of all ages the chance to take part in exciting, challenging and diverse theatre experiences… from half day theatre adventures, to weeklong performance projects, and exploring a wide range of artistic techniques. There’s sure to be something below that’s just perfect for you!
Film School (13yrs+)
We are incredibly proud of our Film Department…with alumni from our weekly training programme progressing into excellent careers both in front, and behind, the camera. This summer, you have the chance to join the team for an intensive 2-day course that gives you experience in pre-production, camera operation, running a shoot and post-production. Whether you have prior experience or not, this course has plenty to offer you.
Dates: 9th – 10th August, 10am-4pm
Cost: £90 (£80 Members)
Technical Theatre (14yrs+)
Using the full resources of The Dream Factory, our Technical Director will give you training in lighting and sound design, rigging, plotting, programming and running a show. This will be a very practical opportunity to explore the excitement, intensity and creativity of the backstage departments. Suitable for those with, and without, previous experience.
Dates: 13th – 15th August, 10am-4pm
Cost: £125 (£115 Members)
HIGH JINKS DAILY THEATRE ADVENTURES FOR 3-6 YEARS
All of our half day experiences are tailored to suit our youngest theatre-makers. Each workshop explores its title ‘theme’, using a blend of role play, songs, storytelling, improvisation and craft. The Friday Fiesta is the perfect way to get ready for the weekend, with lots of theatre games, music and fun. Arty Crafty Mini-Makers focuses on messy, creative play…building props, costumes and scenery. Little Circus introduces participants to the magic of the sawdust ring, with skills including tightrope walking, aerial hoop, trampette and much more. All other workshops are acting-based events, inspired by their title…with lots of skills and techniques to discover together! Each half day adventure concludes with a scrumptious picnic, before heading for home.
