“Please Sir, can I have some more theatre workshops?”

After many successful youth workshops, including Easter’s ‘Fiddler on The Roof’, Theatre at The Mill, Newtownabbey,  is now offering budding young performers the chance to work with West End directors in a wide range of Summer workshops, including the screen play ‘Oliver Twist’ running from  Monday 29 July – Sat 10 August.

Youngsters involved in the ‘Oliver Twist’ workshop for ages 7-18 will get the chance to work with Bronwyn Carr, director of West End productions and formerly of the National Theatre London, as well as directors from the prestigious Guilford School of Acting, Sean and Anna McNamara. The Charles Dickens classic has a great range of parts for the young people involved and will provide an in-depth focus on training and processes for stage performance as well as allowing those involved to make great contacts in the business and create friendships and long lasting memories for summer. There are no auditions and roles will be cast during the course.

When Sean McMamara, Guilford School of Acting director, last visited Theatre at The Mill he commented,

The young people here are more talented and focused than anywhere else we’ve worked before, it’s like working with professionals and putting a full production together in such a short time is an achievement for them all.”

Michelle Muise, whose daughter regularly attends workshops at Theatre at The Mill added,

“It’s a fantastic theatre in a beautiful setting, the workshops for children are fantastic. Theatre at The Mill really is a special place.”

The 2 week workshop is £175 which includes 7 free tickets to the performance on Saturday 10 August, so friends and family can see the great work the young performers have achieved over the 2 weeks. Places are limited, so don’t miss out and book your child’s place online at www.theatreatthemill.com or through box office on 028 9034 0202.
