A big helping of drama is on the menu for budding young thespians thanks to support from a popular local restaurant.
Free places have been made available on a half term drama workshop for six to 14-year-olds being run at Newport Pagnell School of Performing Arts by drama specialists Big Bold Youth, thanks to generous support from the Carrington Arms in Moulsoe.The workshop will take place at the United Reformed Church Hall on Thursday 1st June and will give budding young actors a taste of improvisation and a small theatre project as well as fun games to help build their confidence. Two classes are available: 6-10 year olds (10am-1pm) and 10-14 year olds (2pm-5pm).
Professional actor James Percy-Smith, who runs the youth theatre, said: “Drama is a fantastic way of boosting young people’s confidence in a fun way. Places on our half-term workshop were snapped up within 24 hours of the box office opening but, thanks to this support from the Carrington Arms, we have been able to offer additional places, providing further opportunities for young people to take part in drama at an affordable price. We’re excited about welcoming new students alongside pupils from our weekly drama classes at Moulsoe Millennium Hall.”
Peter Dodman, owner of the Carrington Arms, said: ““This is an exciting opportunity to support a local organisation with a real passion for improving the outlook for young people in the area. The Newport Pagnell School of Performing Arts is one of these organisations offering free places to young people from all walks of life. As a business which supports and works with local enterprise wherever possible we feel this kind of approach can only be of benefit to the local community and we very much look forward to working with them.”
