14-day children's summer theatre training workshop – for 7 to 12 years
First Act works best for all children who must ideally be introduced to theatre at an early stage of their lives, and their creative energies be harnessed for productive results. Spread over 14 days, First Act will introduce essential life skills through the medium of theatre, and the avant-garde methods applied in acting worldwide. In the process, it will also guide children to overcome shyness and stage-fright; help them develop unique flair for problem-solving; and empower them to self-express with autonomy. This specially devised module for First Act will encourage teamwork among participants, and aid them in enhancing self-image by fostering mutual trust, all leading to a short performance at the end of the program.
