NEWS: Launching this Saturday – New weekly classes for Primary & Secondary Pupils at the Theatre Royal

Theatre Royal in Glasgow has an exciting opportunity for budding and aspiring performers with its new range of arts workshops tailored for young people of primary and secondary age.

Young Theatre Royal, a brand new programme from Theatre Royal’s Creative Learning team in collaboration with Showworks Theatre Arts, will start begin on Saturday 8 September and run for 11 weeks.

Young Theatre Royal is an exciting and unique series of Saturday classes led by an experienced team of theatre professionals. The sessions are a great way to build confidence, make friends and develop performance skills.

Towards the end of the term, you’ll have the chance to put your performance skills towards achieving your own personalised certificate in performance! There will also be an opportunity to perform with the Royal Shakespeare Company in its production of Romeo and Juliet which runs at Theatre Royal in May 2019.

Ryan Moir, Class Director said: “Having worked with Theatre Royal Creative Learning for ten years, I am delighted to be working in partnership and leading a new programme of classes from Showworks Theatre Arts.  With a range of classes for primary through to secondary ages, the Showworks’ team of experienced industry professionals develop the young people’s skills as they work towards gaining Trinity College Performance Certificates.  Whether you’re looking just to have fun, or are destined for a career on the stage, these classes are for you!”

Alison Cowan, Creative Learning Manager said: “The collaboration with Showworks Theatre Arts is an exciting new phase for Creative Learning, bringing together two leading organisations in theatre making for young people.  As well as the new Saturday classes that provide a structured programme offering Trinity College certification, participants gain access to a unique casting opportunity to perform with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Romeo & Juliet at the Theatre Royal and next year, the much-loved Stage Experience will return in July with another main-scale extravaganza – more on that to come!”
