Our next workshop dates are:
29th October - 2nd November 2018 (Roaring 20s: The wild party and Thoroughly Modern Millie)
2 January - 6 January 2019 (A Broadway Christmas)
During the school holidays, we hold musical theatre workshops in English, inspired by the great Broadway shows. The children are taught by two Anglophone musical theatre professionals, with the aim of producing a musical theatre presentation entirely in English by the end of the week. For our previous workshops, we have worked on shows such as The Sound of Music, West Side Story, Promises Promises, Anastasia, Newsies and Hairspray.
The workshops run from Monday to Friday from 2 pm - 6 pm. The week ends with a presentation of their work in front of the parents followed by refreshments. The workshops are fun and creative, involving improvisation games, character work, vocal technique development and growth in stage presence, as well as a little bit of history about Anglophone musical theatre. The workshops are intended for children aged 11-17, who already have a good level of English. Younger children are welcome if they are bilingual.
