WIND IN THE WILLOWS WORKSHOP - December 2013
Delivering a physical theatre and puppetry workshop to Reception Class children connected to this acclaimed production of Wind in the Willows at the theatre. This was a fun journey through the woods where the children explored how to be objects, animals and the whistling wind.
SHAKESPEARE SCHOOLS FESTIVAL
Trudy worked with a local Primary School Year 6 cast to produce an edited version of Romeo and Juliet as part of the national Shakespeare Schools Festival. This was an amazing experience for everyone and all the students loved exploring the language and how to stage it, so much so that Trudy has been invited back to support the school's production of Macbeth starting in June 2014.
THEATRICAL CLOWNING WORKSHOPS - October 2013
GCSE students took part in a programme of workshops introducing the key elements of theatrical clowning, including clown types, devising games, physicality and devising scenes. The programme ended with participants earning their red noses in a graduating clown ceremony.
