Youngsters can develop their acting and performance skills at The Core theatre, Corby, during their half-term school break this month.

They are invited to take part in a Charlie And The Chocolate Factory-themed play-in-a-week course, from Tuesday, May 28, to Friday, May 31.

Children from eight to 12 will work with professional theatre director and creative projects manager, Lisa Byrne, to create a mini-play based on Roald Dahl’s classic tale, to share with friends and family at the end of the week.

Lisa said: “The courses are great for children who have been bitten by the acting bug, and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory is a really great story that captures children’s imaginations.”

Previous courses have featured puppetry and puppet-making, devised theatre pieces, and storytelling.

Places on the course are £60 and can be booked by calling 01536 470470. Bursary places are available for those facing financial difficulties. More information on bursaries and the course can be obtained by emailing getinvolved@thecorecorby.com or by calling Lisa Byrne on 01536 470473.
