Shetland Youth Theatre Company is Shetland Youth Theatre reborn with a twist. Not only will we still be offering opportunity to be involved in the Summer productions and projects with local and visiting Directors, we will also be meeting weekly to develop and refine our acting skills, allowing for progression and development for all involved. This group will allow participants to have an understanding of theatre practice as well as developing a range of appropriate skills in voice, movement, acting, acting for camera and stagecraft. Participants will get an opportunity to be part of the creative process with performances throughout the year.
Sessions are booked in one block and will be on Wednesdays 1730-18458th, 15th, 29th Jan 5, 12, 19, 26 Feb 4, 11, 18, 25 March 2020as well as intensives and production times during weekends or holidays.
This course will follow SQA framework ensuring transferable skills that can prepare young actors for a career in the performing arts industries.
These sessions are aimed at those with drama experience and/or a commitment to learning. The aim of this group is to provide regular development alongside intensive sessions to make new works from visiting directors.
As this is a longer term, the company will be working towards a mini-production, as well as continually training as actors in a variety of formats, through exploration of a variety of theatre styles.
These sessions are led by Director and Theatre facilitator, Stephenie Pagulayan who has a vast amount of theatre and participatory experience.
