‘Rise and Shine’ Sessions - Ages 5-7:

These sessions are pointed towards the development of imagination and creativity amongst the youngest of our PYT members. We look at storytelling, fairy tales and structure. This is to allow them to learn how to play roles in a performance and how to understand how stories work. They also play lots of theatre games to develop different qualities required to be performers, from voice, movement, concentration, problem solving and character development.

They run Wednesday Evening 5.15pm- 6.15pm

Costs per 10 week term £56.80 full price, £42.60 Active Redditch Card 25% discount, £28.40 Active Redditch Card 50%
