SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMS!
The school holidays are nearly here, have you booked for the holiday programs? If you get bored over the holidays or just can't get enough drama then these are the programs for you! They run for four days from 9:00am-3:00pm and on the final day all participants get to perform in front of their friends and family. The four days are full and games and rehearsing as each participant gets to work with a group to create their own scenes! We also give everyone a chance to design some props and costumes as well as practice performing with the stage lights and sound, perfect for the upcoming ShortCuts festival!!
The Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) will be joining us in Holiday program one to work with the participants on developing character so book fast because it is a week not to be missed!!
Hayley Gillespie will be working with both of our programs to produce some zany costume pieces and props and anything you make you get to bring home! Imagine wearing that blue monster on your head to the shops!
If these programs sound like your sort of party then CLICK HERE to get more information and book! Spots are filling up fast so get in quick!
As you have probably guessed the ShortCuts festival is only a handful of weeks away! That means that most classes only have about 11 hours left to put their performance together!! To make those 11 hours glide smoothly I suggest taking some time out during the holidays to learn your lines so that when we come back for term 2 we are rocking and rolling and ready to go!
It's also SUPER important to make sure you bring yourself, a water bottle and your script to each and every class!!!! Every second counts! Make sure to check your ShortCuts performance schedule as it has all the information about when Tech runs are and when the actual show is on, right it in the calendar, on the fridge, maybe even your forehead!
If you are new to line learning or would like some new strategies when learning lines then we suggest checking out our LINE LEARNING GUIDE! We have compiled some of the best ways to learn lines and put them all in this handy dandy list so print it out and chuck it on the fridge!
If you have lost your script OR you want to new pretty one you can locate our electronic scripts by heading over to the Log In section of our website. All of the login details are in our newsletter that was given out earlier this term! From there you just click on the Semester One Scripts option that pops up and locate your child's class which will have a link to download the available scripts! So there isn't any excuse for not having a script!
DISCO WRAP UP
Well if you were lucky enough to make it to the disco then you will know what a fantastic night it was! Our final headcount was 140 people which was AWESOME! There was face painting, popcorn, games, photos, hand printing and much much much more!! It was a super successful night and if you weren't there you missed out! Under the black lights you could see everyone's super cool glow costumes and face paint, it was AMAZING!
If you got your photo taken then they should be sent out very soon, thanks to our awesome numbering system we are able to send you the individual photos! Of course the fabulous photos were taken by our very own Danielle, owner of Pixel Bug!
Make sure you keep your eye out for our next Disco, it is sure to be another great night!
Not only are the ATYP coming up to do some workshops with our first week of holiday programs but they are also running a teacher PD session! So if you're a teacher and would love to learn more about teaching with the arts then flick us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!!
