Secondary 1 - 3

Devising a Story (2hrs)

Use a piece of costume, music and a  prop as a starting point to generate the creative sparks of a story that can develop into an improvisation with structure, character, narrative, and learn how to improve your performance skills.

Curriculum level: Third

Experience: ‘Having developed ideas from a range of stimuli, I can contribute to devising, rehearsing and presenting drama or scripts.’


Power of the Ensemble  (2hrs)

Celebrating the exciting potential for a large group of performers to express a feeling, setting and story, the group will devise a small  ensemble piece of theatre. Experiencing the need to listen, focus and respect fellow performers, participants will learn that everyone needs each other for the piece to work.

Curriculum level: Third

Experience: ‘I can create, develop and sustain a realistic or stylised character through the use of voice,
movement and language.’



Negotiable depending on requirements.
