At a hideous history workshop children will get to explore drama forms, historic events and perform in a theatrical environment. In short they will experience the life of a professional actor for the duration of the workshop!
We start each day with the same professional warm-ups actors all over the world do to prepare for show, and include some focusing games before moving on the historic material.
Some time will be spent exploring Stage Make-up techniques and creating costumes to better enhance their characterisation.
At the end of a workshop we invite family and friends to witness the culmination of all of their efforts – be that a short improvised scene, a dramatic song or a full scale mini-show (dependant on the duration of the workshop.)
The Workshops may explore Greeks, Romans, Tudors, Egyptians and Vikings.
