August 11th: Drama Boot Camp! 3 – 5.30pm* (Note that this session is slightly longer than the others)
In this session you will take part in two fun workshops to learn some brilliant tips and techniques for putting together and performing your own short dramas. We’ll tell you all about the spooky, creepy and mysterious stories we’re working with and show you lots of ways to bring a story to life.
There will be a short break, so please bring a drink and snack with you.
August 12th: Lights! Camera! Action! 3 – 5pm
