Halloween fun for children at Corby theatre

Children are promised a frightfully good time if they take part in a Play in a Week project at The Core theatre, Corby.

Youngsters from six to 12 can help create a play with a Halloween theme during the four-day course, from Tuesday, October 30, to Friday, November 4.

Led by professional puppeteer and drama therapist, Lisa Shepherd of Imaginary Ordinary, the course will include theatre-making, puppetry, improvisation and story-telling skills.

Creative projects manager at the theatre, Lisa Byrne, said, “Play in a Week is an entertaining way for children to spend the half-term holidays.

“They can work creatively to make a new piece of theatre that will be shared with friends and family at end of the week.”

Play In A Week follows on from the recent success of Film In A Week which was nominated in the Under 16 category of the Northants Film Awards.

The Play In A Week project costs £60. To book a place call 01536 470470.
