This one-day workshop will give you an introduction to the imaginative and empowering world of drama. Over the day the group will explore a range of theatre games, that will provide an understanding of character development, performance skills, and storytelling. This is the time and place for using your voice, body, and mind to create.
WHOOP theatre is based in Griffith, NSW, and local theatre creative Melanie Toscan developed the school holiday workshops. Melanie has been performing on stage from an early age. She has performed many roles locally ranging from the explosive ‘Tybolt’ in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to the tenacious cheerleader ‘Serena’ in ‘Legally Blonde The Musical'. In more recent times Melanie has been playing the roles of producer and visual designer for local productions. In 2019 she was nominated for a Canberra Area Theatre Award (CAT award) for Best Leading Actress in a Play for her role as ‘Hermia’ in the Griffith and Regional Association of the Performing Arts (GRAPA) ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
PLEASE BRING ALONG some lunch and a drink bottle.
Parents will be able to watch a short performance the students have devised together at the end of the workshop.
