Summer Theatre Courses For Kids

The Simply Theatre Academy in Zurich is holding theatre courses for kids over the Summer. Young aspiring performers from the Zurich area will have the choice between three workshops: “The Three Musketeers” workshop will be lead by a first class sword stage combat fight director and will be split into two age groups, one ranging from 8 to 11, the other from 12 to 17. The second workshop, “Movie in a Week”, will encourage children from 11 to 17 to unleash their creative talent and to work in teams to produce a short action film. They

will be given the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of film making including pitching ideas, script writing, acting for screen and shooting ‘on location’.  The last workshop will give children between 10 and 17 the chance to learn a selection of show stopping musical numbers with a top choreographer and a vocal coach from London’s West End. All three workshops will culminate in a final show, such as an open-air performance or a premier viewing. “Over the week, students discover and learn many key components of an actor’s training, meet friends and develop manyvaluable life skills to take them well beyond the stage,” said Thomas Grafton, Company Director, of the Simply Theatre Academy. “The summer courses offer students the great opportunity to work with experienced theatre practitioners, specialising in acting, vocal coaching, choreography, and stage combat.” The Simply Theatre summer workshops all last one week and will take place at the “Tanzhaus” Zurich venue between July 23rd and August 10th. A further eight summer workshops are taking place at the Geneva venue. Enrolments for both venues are now open. Find out more on:
