After the resounding success of our first Theatre Workshop in 2016, we are delighted to be launching our second with George Want. Formerly a student of the prestigious MFA Theatre Directing at Birkbeck College, George is now a freelance director. His directing work includes Vinegar Tom (C Nova, Edinburgh), A Study in Tinsel (The Television Workshop, Salford) and Blood Wedding (HOME, workshop).
This an incredibly exciting opportunity for children to develop their skills in characterisation and movement, leading up to a performance of an original, devised piece of theatre at the end of the course.
Alongside George will be our very own Director of Drama, Cathy Want, who has produced some superb showstoppers including Guys and Dolls and Les Miserables since her arrival at Sedbergh in September 2014.
“We believe that Drama is about much more than putting on plays. By introducing the limitless opportunities for creativity and collaboration inherent in performance, we help children build confidence and empathy, and develop skills of delivery, production and leadership. Drama is an important tool for preparing our young people to live and blossom in an increasingly team-orientated world.”
“Congratulations on another hugely successful summer course! My son had an absolutely brilliant time on the theatre course (as well as on the easter cricket course) and is counting down the days till he can do another one!”
