Prime Theatre received funding from Arts Council England to run three focused workshops for young actors aged 5-18. This is the first time this high-quality training is open to young people beyond existing Prime Youth Theatre members. New performers and creative young people are encouraged to come along.
Prime Theatre is Swindon’s number one actor training experience for young people. From their base at Swindon’s Wyvern theatre, Prime offers regular workshops and performance opportunities for young people in Swindon from all different backgrounds and levels of experience.
Youngest participants, between the ages of 5-10, will enjoy a two-day experience creating their own performance inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
Actors aged 10-14 will take part in a day long Improvisation Masterclass. This workshop will teach the basics of improvisation – games, working with team mates, and building stories.
Ages 14-18 will work as both actors and directors. This workshop is idealfor those looking to develop their GCSE or A level course work, or a fun place to try something new.
Workshops will be run by Prime’s Associate Director, Emma Barr. Emma explains, “We are thrilled we can host these exciting workshops this half term. Its perfect for young actors who are looking for a crash course in techniques and performance but also a place for any young person who wants to feel creative and have a bit of fun!”
Arts Council England funding means that we are able to offer these workshops for as little as £30.00 per day, or £55.00 for two-day course. Subsidised places are available to ensure that everyone can take part. To book a place, please visit Prime’s website.
