From Tuesday, April 22nd to Saturday, April 26th Wonderland’s Theatre Workshop for 7-12-year-olds takes place at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles and will immerse children in a world of drama, music, dance, singing and theatre design once again.
Now in its second year, the five-day workshop will run from 11am daily.
After five days of workshops and rehearsals the week will culminate in a showcase for family and friends on Saturday, April 26th. Each day is taught on the stage of the theatre and each is dedicated to a day-long workshop led by a member of Wonderland’s cast or creative teams who are also full time professional members of the Irish theatre world.
Days one and two focus on voice, acting, theatre games, comedy and clown, directing and playwriting and culminate in the chance to make a ‘Play in a Day.’
Day three is a singing, opera and acting, day four focuses on dancing, movement and choreography to the children’s favourite tunes.
Day five is rehearse a play, learn all about how the theatre works with its technical staff, design sound and lighting with them, and finally perform a fabulous showcase to friends and family.
Wonderland’s workshop uniquely combines a stage school with the work of a professional theatre company. The aim is to make friends, perform and learn life skills – but most importantly to encourage each young performer to grow & develop through the performing arts - and to have the best of fun together!
Tuesday, April 22nd to Saturday, April 26th. Fee: €95/85 (for siblings from the same family.
