About

A school holiday drama programme to demystify the Bard.

For 12 – 16 years

In a 3 day workshop, PumpHouse drama teacher Mags Delaney takes young people on an exploration of Shakespeare’s world.

The perfect introduction to the brilliance of William Shakespeare, this workshop is not just for young fans and aspiring actors, it’s also designed for young people who may find Shakespeare weird, boring or irrelevant and who may have no experience with drama at all.

Workshop focus includes:

What did Shakespeare write about? (exploring the plays)
Focusing on tragedy and comedy – clowning and emotions
Shakespeare’s famous characters – Heroes, Villains, Clowns.
Modernising Shakespeare to make it understandable
Performing Shakespeare outdoors

The workshop fee includes a ticket to see either Romeo and Juliet or The Comedy of Errors at The PumpHouse

Attendees need to bring lunch, snacks and a drink.
