Kids Theatre Intensive (Online) with The Flying Bookworm Theatre Company
Join the Flying Bookworm Theatre Company on adventures in far-away lands, from the comfort of your own home!
Over the course of four fun-filled days, the Flying Bookworms will empower participants to create their own play inspired and driven from their very own ideas. Using improvisation, theatre games, animal-work and pantomime, students will develop the tools they need to become theatre makers and performers, so they can continue to create and entertain for years to come. These workshops are designed to help students think and act creatively with huge boosts to their confidence in a team with new found friends!
