Children to create a play in days

Share this article

CHILDREN are being given the chance to create their own play in just a few days.

The Core theatre at Corby Cube is running a four-day workshop programme which starts on Monday.

During the half-term holiday, children from eight to 12 can take part in the Play In A Week event.

The creative sessions will be led by actor, writer and director Stephanie Ridings who will work with youngsters to create an original production in just four days.

The workshop will develop the theme of journeys, and the group will use drama, storytelling and movement to explore their imaginations. On the final day they will share their work with family and friends.

The sessions run from Monday to Thursday, from 10am until 4pm, and at 3.30pm on the final day they will present their work to guests.

The four-day programme costs £60 and children are asked to take a packed lunch.
