April School Holiday Workshops


In Week One of the April school holidays we are bringing back our successful school holiday drama workshops! We run two workshops – for 6 – 9 year olds, and 10 – 14 year olds. Each workshop is a self-contained day with a central theme, finishing with a showcase by the kids at 2.30pm for their parents and caregivers.

Workshop Descriptions

Mon 16 April – “MIME-Craft” (Physical Theatre)
Students play with a series of mime actions to create characters and scenarios. Then they dress up and stage their own mime scenes. 

Tue 17 April – “Yes, Let’s!” (Improvisation)
Through lots of fun games and exercises, students learn the basics of improvisation and/or build on their experience. A great way to learn to trust your creativity and work in a team. 

Wed 18 April – “Live From Te Atatu” (Create a Radio Play)
We play with our voices, sound effects and music to create our very own radio plays! Tutors help the students script the plays, which will be performed live at the end of the day.

Thurs 19 April – “Carnival!” (Latin American Storytelling)
Drawing on Colombian tutor Natascha Diaz’s love of Carnival, students will create and perform a story that includes a wonderful parade! Some fun costume-crafting lies in store…

Fri 20 April – “Tales of the Pacific” (Pasifika Performance Workshop with Ura Tabu)
We are delighted to collaborate with respected Pacific Dance Company Ura Tabu to bring you this unique workshop. Our talented guest tutors, Lomina Araitia and Vaiari Ngaromoana (graduates of the Pacific Institute of Performing Arts), will devise and perform a Pasifika tale with the students, throwing dance, drama and song into the mix!
