January School Holiday Workshops



In Week 3 of January 2020 we are running our popular drama workshops again! With the kind support of the Creative Communities Scheme, we’re offering 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 13 Jan – “Little Pop Up Shops!” – Presenting Skills

We head to the Brickworks kitchen to cook up some treats. We’ll make our own market stalls and create fun shopping scenarios to show at the end of the day. After a busy day of making and trading, everyone goes home with goodies. 

Tue 14 Jan – “Te Atatu’s Got Talent” – Comedy

Acrobatics, fire-eating, singing, dog-training… who knows what talents the Brickworks kids will showcase today? With a little help from the magic of theatre, we’ll present a variety show that will knock your socks off! 

Wed 15 Jan – “Mask-erade” – Physical Theatre

Drawing on the ancient tradition of mask, students transform their bodies inspired by the masks they’ll create with modelling clay. A day of kooky characters and extraordinary tales.

Thurs 16 Jan – “5 Minute Shakespeare” – Script (with scribes for non-writers!)

Working with kid-friendly breakdowns of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays, the kids create and perform their own versions of these classic stories. Throw in a few famous Shakespearian quotes and thou hast the “5 minute Shakespeare”!

Fri 17 Jan – “Summer Silliness” – Improv

Always a Brickworks favourite – a day of laughter improvisational games and exercises. A great way to practice thinking on our feet, and working in a group.
