New DGP Youth Group: Sheff Shakes
Coming to the Lantern Theatre offering taster workshops, a Summer School and classes starting in September
Sheff Shakes is a new inclusive Shakespeare based youth drama group situated at the historic Lantern Theatre in Nether Edge. Our team consists of highly experienced, DBS checked Dilys Guite Player members who want to expand the offering of this active community theatre to younger members. We aim to provide children with a complete drama based theatrical experience on a real stage with regular classes due to begin in September 2017.
To introduce young people to the group we are offering FREE Shakespeare workshops on June 17 and 24 from 10am to 1pm for any interested children aged between 11 and 16. No auditions are required but places are very limited so please book a place. The content is identical on both dates so you only need to attend one.
We are also planning a week long Summer School (24 - 28 July with a performance 30 July) based on HAMLET culminating in a show complete with costumes, lights and sound. The Summer School fees are £75 for the week. Places for our free workshops and the Summer School can be booked through our box office.
