Drama & performance
This shared tutorage group is for those who enjoy reading plays, discussing theatre and enjoying themselves in low key, non-threatening practical activities. The group shares memories, examine what the playwrights are saying and test their own ideas through improvisation, mime, story-telling and other forms of creative expression. Discussions include aspects of character, direction, costumes, sets, sound etc. Members of the group take responsibility for organising and presenting activities.
Preparations are underway for the U3A Players performance in 2021. Tutor, Hazel Mepham, encourages members interested in theatre to become involved with the production featuring two radio plays and One Act plays. Scripts will be rehearsed, but can be read in performances, so removing the worry of line learning. Multiple roles will be available for character readers, sound effects and advertising jingles.
Rehearsal times will be advised to members at the beginning of the course.
