A Play in 2 Days is a workshop offering children aged 7-11 years the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of our experienced Drama Facilitators.
Throughout 2 days the group will create a play inspired by Roald Dahl’s The BFG. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, discuss and devise scenes to build their play for a filmed performance for families to enjoy watching together (copies will be emailed after the workshop). This process is designed to develop creative thinking, drama and improvisation skills and build confidence and teamwork.
Students can let their imagination run wild as they not only create their version of The BFG through ensemble work but they can explore their own Dream Country with our very own BFG puppet! Will they escape from the Bloodbottler? Will their ‘Whizzpopping’ get them found out? Will the Queen of England help them in their quest to imprison the other giants? So much to explore in this wonderful tale and there is no limit to what can be achieved in this short time; who knows what strange and wonderful dreams and characters that can be created, and what worlds their audiences/viewers will be transported to?
It will be 2 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. Sibling discount is available, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the discount code.
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.
