Event description

Description

Get ready to enrol as first year students at the Smallerton Institute for Witchcraft and Wizardry. You will conjure spells and magical charms; concoct exotic potions; and come face to face with Smallerton's scariest foe, Dante the Dastardly Dragon! Bring along your wands and feel free to wear your wizarding robes for your first day at magic school!

The audience are encouraged to take part in various sections of the show and get out of their seats to dance alongside the cast.

A Day to Play is the perfect mix of performance by professional dancers with an interactive workshop designed for all the family to take part in (even the grown-ups!) Each session is led by professional dancers and our award-winning director and first ever Artist in Residence at BBC Radio 2, Thomas Small.

Each month, in partnership with brilliant cultural organisations in Dundee, we present brand new versions of our critically acclaimed productions that have toured the world, in the coolest locations! A Day to Play allows children and young people to be adventurous and explore creativity alongside expert pro dancers.

The sessions help children and young people to develop their self-confidence through a range of stimulating exercises and encourage problem-solving and collaboration with others. From the moment you arrive at A Day to Play until the moment you leave, you are immersed in new, exciting worlds!

A Day to Play is intergenerational so they are suitable for children and young people from the age of 2 to 16 and we would LOVE for families to come along too and either join in the playtime with a creative adventure with your kids or just sit back and watch the show. Carers, grannies, aunties and best pals are all welcome - the more the merrier! You don't need ANY experience to enjoy A Day to Play so come give it a whirl.

No workshop is ever the same and there is NOTHING else like this in Dundee! So, come spend a magical Sunday afternoon with Shaper/Caper! Check out our first three performance workshops below! Looking for something for adults? Check out The Shaper/Caper Social Club here!



This workshop takes place on Sunday 29th April 2018 2pm to 3pm at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum and is FREE thanks to generous support from The McManus!
