October School Holiday Workshops



In Week 2 of the October school holidays we are running our popular drama workshops again! With the kind support of the Creative Communities Scheme, 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. Details and enrolment information below:

Workshop Descriptions

Mon 7 Oct – “Fantastical Te Atatu?” – Physical Theatre
Transforming our bodies through movement and costume, we explore the fantastical creatures that might be living right under our noses here in Te Atatu! For fans of Harry Potter, The Hobbit and good fantasy stories!

 Tue 8 Oct – “Just Make it Up!” – 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 9 Oct – “Jazz Hands!” – Musical Theatre
Taking numbers from our favourite musicals, we will lip synch (or really sing!) our hearts out. You don’t need to be a singer or a dance to help us recreate these funny musical numbers! But if you love to dance, you will love this day.

Thurs 10 Oct – “Pitch Your Script” – Scriptwriting and Screen Acting
A screen writer and/or actor in the making? Today’s your chance to write and/or perform a scene for camera with our experienced tutors’ help. We’ll record it for you to keep!

 Fri 11 Oct – “Whispers from the Sea” – Pasifika Storytelling
Our popular guest tutors return to guide the students through a story of the Pacific, which the group will re-enact using movement, music and drama. Always a special day of the week.
