WORKSHOP PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

ABOUT OUR SUMMER THEATRE COURSES

Each week, under the careful guidance of our experienced and enthusiastic leaders, children will explore different aspects of the performing world by learning and practising drama skills using different themed stories as inspiration. Workshops are tailored to the needs and age of the children and new content is created each week so that children can do multiple weeks of summer programmes. All activities are engaging and challenging, and focus on providing children with a sense of achievement and a boost of creativity and confidence. Most importantly, our workshops are designed to be fun and enjoyable for all!

The week starts with ice-breaking activities helping the children to become comfortable in their new environment, allowing them to get to know each other and encouraging them to be proactive and supportive. The workshops then focus on development of performance skills such as improvisation, devising, clarity of expression, vocal projection, movement or script work. Younger actors will focus on developing confidence using the actor’s tools – the voice, body and imagination. Older actors will build upon this foundation with more complex and challenging drama skills to become a more skilled performer.

Photographs and a mid-week report will be emailed to parents. Subject to prevailing government guidelines, each child can invite one parent to an end of week open session where children will share their learning.

“Thanks so much for an inspiring and engaging week at Faust! He obviously had a lovely time every day in your classes and with his new pals. We’d like to send a huge thank you to the wonderful teachers for their marvellous work - teaching the children so much skills in such a short time, while bringing so much daily fun times. It’s magic!” - Faust Parent

“Both my kids joined the summer theatre programme this week and after ONE session today have had so much fun that they're talking about pursuing drama in the future!” - Faust Parent

“Your programme has really helped my daughter build self-confidence, her presentation skills and opened up herself to be more creative with body language.” - Faust Parent



ABOUT OUR CREATIVE WRITING COURSES

Each week, under the careful instruction of our experienced creative writing teachers, children look at different aspects of creative writing including metaphors, similes, dialogue, poetry, descriptive techniques and genre writing, to list but a few. Whether a student is an aspiring writer or a novice, our students will have plenty to write about!

Our limited class size (maximum of 8 students) allows plenty of time for discussion, as well as group and individual feedback. At the end of the lesson we review what we have done and share what we have learnt and how we will apply this in our writing. Please note these courses are designed for children with native or a high level of fluency in English, and are not designed as an English as a Second Language programme.

At the end of each programme, children will bring their portfolio of written work home. Our teachers will also be happy to give you feedback about your child’s progress.

“He had a wonderful time in creative writing! We look forward to joining more of your holiday programmes soon!” - Faust Parent

“My kids said that the whole time it didn’t seem like they were doing homework when they had the expectation that it would be like that! Your creative writing programme is a great fun and entertaining way for kids to learn how to put their imagination down in words.” - Faust Parent

“Thank you for the course. Both kids are loving it! It's been hard to get them to read and write so this has been amazing.” - Faust Parent



ABOUT OUR MUSICAL THEATRE COURSES

Our musical theatre workshops are a great way for those interested in singing, dancing and acting to hone and develop the skills required to be a triple threat musical theatre performer!

Throughout the week, members will learn how to become familiar with their voice and vocal range, act out parts of a script and song, and learn choreography to accompany their singing and acting. This will all culminate towards a small show case at the end of the week where family and friends can enjoy a small musical performance, subject to government guidelines. Alternatively, a video will be filmed and email to parents.

This programme is not only for aspiring performers, but it is also for anyone who wants something, adventurous, creative and exciting to do during the holidays.


“This was my children's first experience with Faust and they absolutely loved it. They were enthusiastic about going back every single day. Please say a big thank you to their very enthusiastic teachers from me and my husband.” - Faust Parent
