Stories can move people to tears or have us rolling on the floor in fits of laughter. They can have us holding onto the edge of our seats or give us the courage of a super hero. Spend a morning or an afternoon discovering all the elements of story-telling technique, explore characterisation and stage craft in a safe and fun environment. This workshop will focus on ensemble building skills, encourage students to expand their creative thinking, put forward their own ideas and culminate in a showing at the end of the lesson.
