THE MASTER PLAN;
ACTING SUMMER PROGRAMME
An intensive week long summer school for budding actors, directors and writers aged 8-19 years.
14th AUGUST - 18th AUGUST 2017
Summer 2017 sees RoguePlay teaming up with two professional working actors and playwrights to deliver a new week long summer programme for young actors, directors and writers. BOOK 2017 NOW
'Thanks for a splendid Summer School; all the kids enjoyed it immensely
The lasting memory will be the understandable sense of achievement demonstrated by all involved; thanks again.' (Jim, Summer School Parent)
The week will see the group working together to devise a new piece of theatre, led, written and performed entirely by the young people. Participants will choose which discipline they would like to focus on for the week and undertake a series of masterclasses within that discipline. Through their learning they will develop the practical skills required to bring their creative ideas to life on the stage, be it as a writer, actor or director. By the end of the week the group will have created an extraordinary new piece of theatre to share with an audience of family and friends.
The title of this year’s summer school is 'The Master Plan', the theme of which is 'games'. This might be anything from mind games played between people or board games played by children, to the universal game of life.
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
Through a wide variety of creative and practical exercises, the participants will explore the theme and bring to fruition their own interpretation of 'The Master Plan' for performance.
No experience is necessary, you just need enthusiasm!
