A Young Person's Guide to the Theatre

Family Workshop

A Young Person’s Guide to the Theatre​ Workshop series enables parents and children to experience the fun of drama and stage production first-hand. Each workshop will focus on a different theatre component, such as props, costumes, lights and sound. The series incorporates AFTEC’s 7 Tools & Skills to ignite our creativity and awaken our sense of arts. In the July workshops, we will explore Sound together, paying attention to the sounds in our lives and improvising short scenes with our imagination.
