Free Drama Workshops and Gain New Skills
Monday eves in THAME Library

Come to Free Drama Workshops and Gain New Skills    Following the success of last year’s Drama Workshops, Thame Players are again holding a three-week course of free drama workshops on Monday 11th, 18th and 25th March from 6.30 to 8.00 pm. They will be held at Thame Library, 3 North Street, Thame OX9 3BH, so no-one needs to get stage fright!

If you’re taking your first steps on stage or looking to hone your craft, these workshops are perfect for all ages, 15 to 75!  Anyone can take part, and no experience is required.

The workshops will be hosted by experienced Thame Players’ actors. You will learn about the key elements of theatrical performance, character development and physical storytelling, and you’ll get to take part in drama games and improvisation, as well as doing voice work. You’ll also get a guided tour of the Players Theatre, with a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes and on stage!

Expect to leave each workshop with a boost in self-confidence, stage presence and creativity. Not to mention the fun evenings and new friends you’ll meet! Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to play, learn and develop your skills.
