Westy Youth Theatre (12 - 14 years) Summer 19

Westy Youth Theatre Tuesday 23 April - 9 July 6pm - 8pm (no class 28 May)

Getting on stage and performing in front of others can seem a little daunting at first, but we have a very friendly, welcoming and inclusive environment – everyone supports everyone else and we’re all here to learn from each other.

Our 12-week course is for both newcomers and more experienced actors alike. Our classes are relatively informal but do adopt a structured approach. We play theatre games that are useful for establishing trust, unlocking creativity, and having fun! We also focus on technical areas and functional skills; voice projection, character creation, improvisation, stage craft – in small groups or solo – practicing various acting techniques and play-devising.

Most terms we will work toward a production, either working with an existing script or offering other actors an opportunity to both write and direct short pieces. We put up our productions in the theatre in front of an invited audience of up to 100 people.

Our golden rule is we respect each other and share a common love of drama – creating something unique together.

Tutor Bekki has a BA (Hons) and MA (Hons) in English Literature, a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Education and has taught arts and humanities extensively at secondary and undergraduate level.

Bekki trained as an actor and director in the Brendan Smith Academy of Acting, in her native Dublin, before moving to England in the late 1980s. She then became involved in the acting troupes and theatre groups associated with the West End Centre and started teaching her very first youth drama class here when she was nineteen years old.
