From fairies to pirates, aliens planets to the Arabian desert : In our new FREE weekly online Drama classes, Evelyn will be using Zoom to connect with young people, helping them to develop a variety of Drama skills.
Primary age classes will focus on using their imaginations to create characters, learning voice skills, showing emotions and exploring music and how it makes us feel. Mix all this up with games and some joke telling and we’ve got a recipe for loads of fun.
Secondary age + classes will follow a similar path but in much greater depth. We will explore different sources that can be used to stimulate ideas for creating monologues; so be prepared to work out what a packet of cheese and onion crisps have got to do with it! We will also look at excerpts from National Theatre Scotland productions to see how the professionals do it. We may use new plays written by contemporary Scottish Playwrights, and film performances to share with other Youth Theatre groups.
Everyone will be developing communication skills, building self-confidence and learning to work with others along the way.
All participants should wear comfortable clothing, have a bottle of water nearby and make sure they have a reasonable amount of space to move about safely.
