WILDCATS STAGE HALF TERM HALLOWEEN-THEMED WORKSHOPS
Wildcats Theatre School is staging a programme of special Halloween themed activities during the October half term in Stamford, Kings Cliffe and Grantham. Aimed at boys and girls, three one day courses have been developed by the Wildcats team – Glee Musical theatre workshop, Twilight Musical Workshop and ‘So you think you can Dance? Halloween special.
Running through half term week, from Monday 25 October to Saturday 30 October, the one day workshops run from 9.15am to 4.30pm with a mini performance at 3.45pm. They are aimed at six to 16 year olds.
The Glee workshop will be held at Stamford Arts Centre on Monday and Grantham Arts Centre on Tuesday. “This day has a mix of Halloween activities such as spooky party games, creepy dances, singing and chilling drama,” says Wildcats director Caz Dolby. “Students are invited to bring their own costumes to add to the atmosphere.”
The Twilight Musical Theatre Special will be held at Stamford Arts Centre on Tuesday and Grantham Arts Centre on Saturday. “Activities for this day will be themed around vampires, ghosts and other spooky ‘goings on’ with songs, routines and script from the Twilight films along with Michael Jackson’s Thriller and the musical Wicked,” adds Caz.
So you think you can dance? Halloween Special will be on Wednesday at Kings Cliffe, Thursday at Stamford and Friday at Grantham. “It doesn’t matter if you can or can’t dance! We will fill the day with Halloween activities and music from Thriller, Addams Family, Rocky Horror Show and Ghostbusters.
“The courses will be action-packed and fun but with plenty of opportunity for all the students – from the young children to the teenagers - to develop their musical theatre skills, whatever their previous experience,” adds Caz. “Our summer courses were a sell-out and I anticipate our Halloween extravaganza being equally popular!”
All the one day courses cost £16.50 a child and must be pre booked. Booking forms are available from Wildcats director Caz Dolby on 07725915333.
Wildcats drama classes are held in Stamford and Kings Cliffe. More than 160 students, from the Stamford, Oakham, Bourne and Rutland area attend weekly classes.
