Weekly Workshops

By Whats On

Summer term 2021 workshops

The workshops are a great way to engage in PYT outside of our productions and projects during term time. They have been introduced into the PYT creative programme to give our members more opportunities to embrace all things theatre and to hone, challenge and inspire their skill base. Theatre skills are incredibly transferable into everyday life and it has been wonderful to track the increase in self-esteem, the sense of joy and belonging in the participants.

The venue is The Space, 2a Heath Road, Petersfield GU31 4DU

 Places are limited so please book early

We thought we’d like to give you the opportunity to Create – maybe a short film, an audio/radio play, an ad, a monologue, live or to camera.

With Chris’ help, or bouncing ideas off others in the group, you come up with the first idea and see how and where it takes you – and us!

We hope you are excited by this – we aim to make it lots of fun and hope it may unleash a few hidden talents amongst our members.

Chris is an actor, director and writer who will be on hand to guide and encourage and develop your ideas.

We look forward to working with you this term.
