THEATRE DEPARTMENT

Playbox Theatre trains young people in theatre and allied performing arts. These age-banded sessions at The Dream Factory in Warwick and at our supporting training studios, offer the following courses:

Theatre for Under 11s (Apple Club/Playbox 2)

Inside the mind of a child lies excitement, imagination and a desire to explore. Playbox Theatre’s under 11s programme covers a wide spectrum of artistic and creative skills designed to build self-esteem, confidence and nurture talent. The approach is lively, group-based and created especially for the age group. It includes mime, movement, role play, improvisation, acting, voice, physical theatre and self-expression. A perfect and collaborative springboard for developing imagination and confidence.

Acting & Theatre Training for Ages 12-21 (Playbox 3/4/5)

Playbox Theatre’s central training programme offers young people high level direction and the opportunity to develop their skills and potential in a structured range of theatrical disciplines and techniques. This programme explores voice, text, improvisation, physical theatre, movement, project and group devising, rehearsal and performance. Playbox techniques enable young people to emerge as skilful, articulate and confident performers. We also offer advanced training for those wishing to take their work further as a career.
