Backstage School

Backstage School


Our holiday projects and workshops for children and young people focus on the skills you need to work offstage in a theatre – that’s prop making, set design, theatrical make-up, sound and light, and technical skills. All sessions for ages 16-25 will be held 4-6pm. All sessions will be held at the SJT here in Scarborough £10 per workshop (£7.50 concession available for people experiencing financial difficulty) Places are limited – early booking is advised All materials will be provided Workshops are based around a wide range of on- and off-stage skills – do one or do them all! Tue 28 May – Stage Combat: We punch people in the face at the SJT all the time, but don’t worry, no-one gets hurt! If you want to learn some of the principles and skills to safely perform unarmed stage combat, then this workshop is for you. Thu 30 May – Puppet Making: We’ll start simple with a sock and some buttons…then we’ll introduce you to a range of performance, design and construction techniques, plus the chance to try out some of the incredible puppets we have here at the SJT.
