About the Class

A chance for young people to develop their performance and theatre making skills in contribution to a piece of performance. Learn to work as an ensemble, deliver text and explore physical theatre techniques. These sessions will provide young people with a toolkit to creatively approach theatrical text (and maybe even create their own!). They will also provide the opportunity for young people to perform onstage at The Edge.

Payable half-termly, taster sessions available.
