Each half term Oxford Playhouse runs workshops or activities for children and young people. Participants enjoy exploring different disciplines; musical theatre, physical theatre, storytelling, puppetry and much much more, while learning how to create and stage their own performances for family and friends at the end of their workshop.
Every summer we invite children to join us for the week to create their version of an Oxford Playhouse production. Your children will devise their own script and incorporate song and dance to portray their story. We are proud to have Mark Curtis (Small Nose Theatre) deliver a week long Clowning course for young people. Participants will learn the fun and demanding art of Clown and Improvisation as they discover what being funny means, why it’s important to fail and what type of clown they are.
