Event description

Description

Pantomime is one of Britain's most treasured traditions, singlehandedly responsible for the year-round success of many theatres up and down the country. As an art form it is full of expectations and conventions, but rarely do performers gain a true understanding of its history and makeup. We are therefore absolutely delighted to be able to offer these unique panto exploration workshops in September 2017.

Led by panto expert and renowned educator Simon Sladen, students will be able to explore the conventions of pantomime, from its stock character formation and construction to the peculiarities of the modern genre. Taking an exclusive first peek at our brand new script, students even get to work on scenes from the show!

There will be two identical 90-minute workshops taking place in the Studio Theatre at the EM Forster Theatre, Tonbridge on Saturday 16th September. The first will start at 1.30pm and end at 3pm, and the second will start at 3.15pm and end at 4.45pm.

If you are driving, you should park in the TSC (Tonbridge School Centre) and walk across to the theatre. Alternatively there are plenty of local residential roads equally close to the theatre.

The whole Panto Bootcamp Weekend is absolutely free of charge, so whether you're an avid panto enthusiast or don't know your stage left from your stage right, you can sign up to these workshops at no cost. Spaces will be limited, so booking in advance is essential. Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult upon arrival if they haven't booked in advance (just to authorise us taking photos and videos).
