April School Holiday Workshops


In the first week of the April school holidays we are running our popular drama workshops again! 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 3pm for their parents and caregivers. The students gain confidence, enhancing their communication and teamwork skills through fun games and exercises taught by the experienced Brickworks drama tutors.

Workshop Descriptions

Mon 15 April – “The Fantastical Zoo” – Physical Theatre
You’ve never heard of the animals in this zoo before! Using our bodies (and costumes) we will transform into creatures we dream up; the zookeepers who care for them; and the brave visitors who come to meet them. By the end of the day we will have a short, physical play for whanau to enjoy.

Tue 16 April – “Yes Let’s!” – Improvisation
A fun and funny day full of improvisation games and exercises. Think popular TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway”, adapted to suit all levels. A great way to practise teamwork and gain confidence in your ideas.

Wed 17 April – “Close Up” – Screen Acting
This workshop was such a hit last year we are bringing it back. From silly advertisements, to scripted scenes, and mannequin challenges – we explore lots of ways to relate to the camera and perform on screen.

Thurs 18 April – “Whenever, Wherever” – Comedy: Latin American-inspired
soap opera
Our former Colombian soap opera star, and Brickworks Co-Director Natascha Diaz will help us create our very own (age-appropriate!) Latin American-style soap opera. Think drama, big dresses, and mysterious twins. Shortland St has nothing on us – buckle up for the end of day presentation!
