ACTING COURSE FOR AGE 60+
Our 60+ Acting Course offers practical performance workshop for those who are ageing creatively. These groups are suitable for theatre-enthusiasts who would like to explore performance skills and techniques whilst having great fun. So far we have explored a whole range of different theatre styles, scripts and genres such as Shakespeare, physical theatre, devising from scratch and new writing. At the end of last term we also created mini performances to show our friends and family, as well as Lyceum staff, all of the work we had been exploring.
We welcome people of all skill levels, abilities and experience. New members are always welcome.
• Group 1: Tuesdays at 11am, from 24 April - 26 June
• Group 2: Wednesdays at 2pm, from 25 April - 27 June
Duration: 120 minutes
£70 for 10 week term
Please note current members will have priority booking for these groups and places are limited.
No new bookings will be taken 3 weeks after the term has started.
