This summer they have arranged some fantastic summer courses and workshops designed to keep six to 16-year-olds busy over the school holidays.”
Laura talks you through the fun coming up:
Mary Poppins Day: “Have a practically perfect adventure in and around Theatre Royal Brighton! Explore backstage and take part in Mary Poppins themed arts and crafts activities, play on the stage and try out some Chimney Sweep moves, venture under the stage for some stories and games and take a spoonful of sugar with your picnic lunch in the Theatre! A supercalifragilis-ticexpialidocious day for 7-11 year olds.” Thursday, August 8, 11am-3pm.
Percussion Carnival: “Make a clatter with your clutter in this loud, rhythmic and energetic junk Percussion workshop led by the masters of noise Clatteratti. Eight to 15-year-olds and their adults will make instruments out of everyday objects, old drums and other people’s rubbish and explore how sounds are created and composed to produce a riotously joyful percussion carnival on stage at Theatre Royal Brighton.” Monday, August 12, 1.30pm-4.30pm.
Backstage World: “Discover the basics of theatre lighting and sound, what happens backstage before and during a show, and how our flying system works, in this exciting workshop led by our amazing technical team.
