Becket Drama Club

Becket Drama Club

Fifth Word delivered an week-long afterschool drama club for young people in Derby. The club was open to all children in the Abbey Ward area between the ages of 8 and 12.

Participants had the opportunity to develop new skills in improvisation, devising, directing, acting and physical theatre techniques. During the workshops the young people explored themes from The Tempest by William Shakespeare and created their own scenes in response to this.

The Project culminated in a special showcase event where the group performed their ensemble piece to audience members from the community.
