Act V – Workshops ONLINE for the Over 50’s !

Mondays during term time, from 10.15am - 13.15pm

Sessions via ZoomMonday mornings are Act V mornings at The Headgate!! This thriving group combines study and participation of all aspects of theatre with a supportive social atmosphere. If you're interested in all thing’s theatre - whether that be Shakespeare, musical theatre, modern plays, performance or technically creative - this might be for you! No particular knowledge or performing skills are required – just a willingness to explore the topic and have some fun!

Experienced theatre practitioners will lead the group through the exploration of a topic and encourage practical contribution. Groups might explore the use of an item of clothing or a prop to create character, explore and perform one of Shakespeare’s sonnets or a song from a musical. Current participants come from a wide range of backgrounds and most are not interested in "performance" - they just have a love of theatre! We understand that starting a new group might feel daunting, so your first session is treated as a "taster".

Why hello there.
Before we get our longer courses off the ground, we wanted to invite you in for another 4 weeks of mime so we can really get into the swing of this whole mime thing.
In this course we'll be building on the skills we learned in the last one - but don't worry if you didn't make it, plenty of MimeTime to catch up ;)
We'll be going over some of the fundamentals of mime and you'll get weekly practices to try at home between classes.
Les Bubb has taught courses around the world and consulted on top West End productions (we also like to call him Mime to the Stars after he worked on-set with the Harry Potter celebs). He's had a long, varied and accomplished career performing in theatre, TV and Hollywood (Detective Pikachu anyone?). He's now eager to raise the next generation of mime fans outside the institutions and wants you to be one of them. Expect music and silliness - it's going to be a ball.

Valentines Voice Workshop - Romeo & Juliet

Valentines Voice Workshop - Romeo & Juliet

Sunday 14th Feb morning or afternoon session (10.00am-1.00pm or 2.30-5.30pm)

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

Everyone’s invited to this Valentine’s Day Zoom workshop where you’ll spend three hours exploring your voice as you explore Romeo and Juliet – by speaking them. The session will start with a vocal warm-up, go through a guided, summarised read-through, and then explore the play’s most famous speeches using vocal exercises that help professional actors explore text. The idea is that speakers don’t focus on the challenges of Shakespeare’s language but allow his words to speak them. And on Valentine’s Day what better words could anyone allow to speak them than these words of love?

At the end of the session you’ll have a greater understanding of your own voice, and of the language of Romeo and Juliet. You’ll also be a more lyrical lover.

Participate on your own or with your loved one.

My name's Matthew Collins and for ten years I was a presenter on BBC2's The Travel Show. I then brought up two boys alone. But when my kids became teenagers I began a new career - teaching Shakespeare in prison. I did this for ten years until the pandemic - in men's and women's prisons.
My approach was to get participants speaking Shakespeare's words - and feeling their effects on their breath, their heartbeat, their posture....
After the usual, initial reservations ("**** this guv"), most participants would love it.
And men would sometimes even beg me for sonnets - that they put in letters to girlfriends, passing off Shakespeare's lines as their own.
("My girl loved that eye of heaven bit....").
I taught in prison until the pandemic. And then started running workshops online.
As well as prisoners, I run Speaking Shakespeare workshops in schools. And for the Women's Institute.

And now, I'm running a special Valentine's Day project called: Explore Romeo and Juliet - by speaking them.
It's open to people who know Shakespeare very well or very little. It's open to people who love or loathe public speaking; and it's open to native as well as non-native speakers of English. It's for singles and couples (together or separated by Covid).
