A fabulous OPPORTUNITY TO BRUSH UP YOUR SKILLS AND HAVE FUN AT THE SAME TIME ! Arts Dream is delighted that the project has been funded by the Big Lottery Fund
Arts Dream Selsey is offering in collaboration with 'Making Theatre and Gaining Skills ' company a chance for young people 16 and over to be involved in an exciting and dynamic three week summer project, that is free for all participants. The Project will be held at the Academy Selsey from the 18th of July through to August the 6th 10am -4pm daily with some evening performances.
Hilary Strong the director of the project has her own travelling theatre! and within the three weeks there are a variety of options open to you:
Option 1 Sign up for I week -18-23rd of July
Week I is an exciting playwriting challenge that will take place between Tuesday 19th and Friday 22nd July. ‘Arriving at the theatre on their nominated day, each writing team will be presented with copies of random newspapers published that day, denying them any kind of advance preparation. Together, they will select a story, and at 7pm that evening their new ten-minute play will be performed at the theatre by a cast of actors. The final stage of the challenge takes place on Saturday 23rd August, when all four new plays will be performed in one gala evening.’ Director Hilary Strong who will work with each of the four teams during the process said: “This challenge will give local writers and young people a tremendous opportunity to try something new and different. Writing to a deadline is the best possible way to produce vivid, edgy work which can’t, and doesn’t, play safe.”
Option 2 Sign up for two weeks 25thof July to Saturday the 6th of July
Participants will over the next 2 weeks work on a children’s play to be shown on Friday 5th of August 1.30pm and 3.00pm and on Saturday the 6th of August 11am -2pm
This will be 30-45 minutes in length.
