We guide children through the process of creating a story, building characters, performance skills and theatrical elements such as lighting, costume, props and set. We don’t use scripts and the children don’t have to learn lines, instead we work on character building techniques, group work, improvisation and spontaneity.  The cost is €14 per 90 minute class.
