There will be daily opportunities to get creative for people of all ages. The online courses will run from 15-19 February to ensure participants can enjoy taking part from the safety of their own homes. Classes include: Babigloo Music for Babies, Minis Drama Club for ages 4-7, Young Writers Workshops for ages 7-11 and ages 12-18, a free Artists Talk with multi-arts creative Michele O’Brien and Colin Phillimore, and an Improv Workout workshop with Pete Courtenay. In addition, the theatre also has an online course called See It, Be It, Write which is available to buy and do at your own pace.
The half term programme follows its ongoing stream of online groups, talks, workshops, and courses, providing an alternative to its usual participation groups and live performances and ensuring continued income for the charity that runs the theatre.
Sharon Lawless, CEO and creative producer, said, “The income raised from our online courses is essential to ensure our survival, but it’s not only about that. Forest Forge Theatre has been delivering theatre to communities for 40 years. The work we do as a charity touches lives, provides an outlet for creativity and aids with the mental health and wellbeing of people of all ages.
“We know online is not the same as being in the wonderful theatre space we have at Forest Forge, but our sessions are run by theatre professionals who make the experience engaging, creative, and a fantastic way to interact with others – which is what we all desperately need right now.”
