A play in 3 days is a fun-filled drama 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 the 3 days, the group will create their own version of the story inspired by Roald Dahl’s The Witches. They will develop characters, learn stagecraft skills, devise scenes to build their play for a performance on the final afternoon for families 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 as they not only create their version of The Witches through ensemble work. Will the High Grand Witch get her wishes, will her clan of children detesting crones affect their evil plan or will the boy and his grandmother save the day? So much to explore in this wonderful tale, perfect for Halloween, and there is no limit to what can be achieved; who knows what strange and wonderful battles and 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 and costumes to help create the world of their play.

It will be a few 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 Discount is available until Friday 8th October - just apply the code BIRD21HLWN at checkout and it will give you 10% off.

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.
