About the course: Last year's course culminated in the critically acclaimed performance of 'Terra Incognita' at Carew Castle (based on Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'). This year a performance will take place at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire.

The course will be of interest to young people interested in drama and for those interested in the more technical side or stage management. Tutors will be professional theatre practitioners with a wealth of experience and contacts within the industry.

Performers - will have the opportunity to work with specialist tutors on certain aspects of the craft of performing. There will be workshops including games, improvisation and devising. As the final piece is to be devised, a committed and open-minded approach will be required from participants. Work will be rigorous with few breaks - and boundless energy and enthusiasm will be required! No absence from the course will be allowed (with obvious exceptions) as this will affect continuity and morale.

Technicians - will first and foremost be introduced to the essentials of health and safety, followed by the working of light and sound equipment, the basics of set construction and stage management. As a team, technical participants will work on the construction of the set and individuals will get the opportunity to specialise in another area for the show itself. Team work is of great importance as well as an understanding that some technical work is mundane but attention to minor as well as major detail is essential for a successful outcome!
