Theatre skills club after school

Younger children can learn about acting, directing, playwriting and technical elements of the theatre ay an after-school class in Swanwick.

Ark Theatre are running theatre classes in which children can learn about all aspects of theatre through exercises, games, activities and rehearsals.

A spokesperson for the group said: “Children can decide to keep learning about each part of theatre or what aspects of the theatre they enjoy and excel at the most, and concentrate on this discipline if they wish to.

“Our classes are different to any others because the children, as a group, will write, produce, direct and act in their very own play. We also regularly invite professionals in the industry to run extra workshops which each child can attend.”

Classes run every Monday evening at Swanwick Hall School, Derby Road, Swanwick, from 5pm to 6pm (for ages 6-11) and 6.15pm to 7.15pm (for ages 11-16). For any more information email admin@arktheatrecompany.co.uk or phone 07532 014318.
