A Play in a Day: Children to devise and perform their own play this May half term at the Wharf

May half term; yeah I know right, on its way, already; mums pour wine into a litre tankard and try not to think about it. But hey, is your child one of those imaginative ones? What little one isn’t? Do they enjoy creating characters & stories? Are they interested in performing?

Here’s an ideal opportunity to wear them out for a day, sign them up for a drama-filled, fun day at the wonderful Wharf Theatre in Devizes. It’s designed to introduce young people to the art of devising and to develop their performance skills and confidence. The students will then perform their play at The Wharf Theatre in an informal showcase for friends & family that afternoon.

Play in A Day is on Wednesday 30th May, runs from 10am – 4pm, with the performance at 3.30. Ideal for ages seven to eleven. The cost per child is £25 (£20 for subsequent siblings.)

Tutors, Beth and Kat are drama practitioners with experience in leading sessions and working with young people in a wide variety of settings. They welcome people of all abilities to their workshops. Whether you are confident on the stage, looking to develop new skills, make new friends or just want to try something new, join them for a fun day packed full of imagination, devising and performing!

But don’t hang about on this, there’s only sixteen places available – follow this link to book: https://goo.gl/forms/n9Fk3JYZbZasnPKy2

For older children, aged between ten and seventeen, there’s the ongoing Wharf Youth Theatre project, where members perform one production a year, every July. Rehearsals normally start in April. There’s a form to fill in on the Wharf Theatre website for more information.

It’s exciting and vibrant, productions give youngsters the opportunity to perform on the Wharf stage and experience the magic of creating a full scale show. Previous shows have included; Suessical the Musical, Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, The Happy Prince and Just So. The members also have the opportunity to audition for adult theatre productions throughout the year for shows that require younger cast members.

There you go, takes some weight off your mind doesn’t it mums?
