Adult “Introduction To Drama” Sessions
Ilkley Playhouse will be offering Adult Drama Sessions on Saturday mornings from noon to 1 pm from September to December 2017, subject to numbers expressing interest in advance.
These sessions enable adult actors to improve their skills and provide the opportunity to discuss, study and engage in many aspects of theatre in the company of like-minded individuals. All levels of ability are catered for, whether you are a complete newcomer or relatively experienced, with the interaction between the experienced and the novices representing a key benefit of the sessions.
The content includes basic warm-up exercises, vocal skills, body language, the theory and practice of acting, theatrical genres and practitioners and the theory and practice of directing. There is both script and improvisation work, with the opportunity for group members to direct their peers in small scenes, swapping roles as part of the learning process.
As the sessions progress, other experts can be brought in to advise on costumes, stage fighting, choreography, lighting and sound etc. Much of this will depend on the requirements of the participants.
The fee for the one term will be £40 for paid-up members of the society, or £50 for non-members, with a reduction of £5 for each additional husband, wife or partner. (Up to a maximum of one!)
Please register your interest by contacting Andrew Leggott, the Class Tutor by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone if you wish to discuss the sessions 01943 602014
