Shipley Street Arts Festival: Half Term Theatre School

We're very exciting about the upcoming Shipley Street Arts Festival: Half Term Theatre School!

The Theatre School - which will be taking place 26th - 29th October - is a great opportunity for all youngsters (aged 11-15) who may be interested in a future career in theatre and the arts.

The four days of fun include taster sessions in four theatre disciplines: Circus, Theatre Arts, Stage Fighting and Movement.

Each day will include two workshops on a specific area within those categories, all run by theatre professionals who can provide a great insight in what being an artist really involves.

The Theatre School is being run in partnership with Calderdale Theatre School and the local DM Academy.

Whether your child would like to attend all four days or just one, they're more than welcome to come along and have a fantastic time dancing, clowning, designing their own creations or taking part in an epic (staged!) duel.

4 days: £30 per child
2 days: £17.50 per child
1 day: £10 per child
