Holiday Program: Perform in a stage adaptation of Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland

‘A Play in Five Days!!’ – January School Holidays 2014

This holiday program runs for five days, with the final day including a performance of a unique adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

Children will spend the first four days rehearsing the play in a fun and supportive environment. Rehearsals will include the teaching of the following skills:

  • Improvisation: Thinking on your feet
  • Voice: Finding the voice of your character, tongue twisters, speaking clearly on stage etc.
  • Stage craft: How to move, where to move on stage, stage direction
  • Movement: In terms of finding how your character moves, how does he/she move differently from you? etc.

The emphasis will be on drama as FUN and the play will be a ‘work in progress’ performance. This means that children may have their scripts on stage if required, and that the emphasis is on ‘fun’ rather than attempting a polished production (which is not possible in such a short space of time!).

The performance will be open to friends, family and the public.
