Tue 31 March - Liverpool Network Theatre Group - weekly workshop

Our ongoing weekly workshops are open to all. We share skills, try out new ideas, and most of all have fun!
 
Network workshops are held every week, including half term and summer breaks.
 
Please feel free to come along to any workshops, whatever amount of experience you have, from beginner to drama student to professional!
 
They are usually self contained in theme, so you don't need to wait until the end of a series to join. Also they continue alongside performance rehearsals, which occur on a different night.
 
Each workshop has a different theme, and are usually led by experienced workshop leaders or interested members of the group. Occasionally we have visiting workshop leaders to bring in different skills. Any member of Network is also welcome to lead workshops, following discussing their plans with the group and workshop organisers.

Members take it in turns to run workshops, on a range of practical skills, drama games and exercises, themes and plays. For information call 0151 733 9606.

We also have a play reading group who meet regularly to discuss ideas for new plays, on a separate evening to the workshops.

Workshops now take place at 13 A Hope Street. The entrance to the building is from the back, via Arrad Street at the back of Everyman Theatre. This is the road next to the Casa pub. Please ring the bell, there is a porter letting people in. It may get cold there, so bring a fleece!

The start time is 7pm, running until 9pm.

Since we will now need to pay venue hire, we have agreed to charge £1.00 per person per workshop. Those who can afford to pay more are invited to do so.We can make special arrangements for those who cannot afford this.

If you decide to join Network there is a yearly subscription fee of £5 waged, £3 unwaged.
