Creating Performance is a 3 day workshop offering children aged 7-12 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.


Throughout 3 days the group will create a play inspired by Roald Dahl’s Dirty Beasts.  They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, discuss and devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for family and friends to enjoy. This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.  


Students can let their imagination run wild, creating a their own interpretation of Dirty Beasts.  They may choose to focus on Crocky Wock the greedy crocodile, or dare to be the waiter who tempts a hungry Lion or fly off like Miss Milky Daisy the cow.  Better yet, they could create stories involving their very own Badly Behaved Beasts!  There is no limit to what can be achieved in this short time; who knows what strange and wonderful characters can be created and what worlds their audiences will be transported to.


Not only will they received guidance and help from our Facilitators but they will be given props, costumes and basic set in which to create the world of their play. 


It will be 3 days of building fun memories, learning new skills and making new friends.


Due to limited spaces available, it is recommended that parents/guardians book early to avoid disappointment.  Early bird and sibling discount available, simply email us at bristolacademyofdrama@gmail.com for discount codes and booking information


All children will need to bring is their willingness to get stuck in, their imagination, comfy clothing and plenty of food and drink to keep their energy levels up.
