The Sewell Barn Company


Workshops for 2013-14 - This season the Sewell Barn Theatre Company continues its programme of diverse workshops for the continual development of emerging and established company members.  Opening up the world of theatre from the rehearsal room and backstage, these practical learning opportunities encourage creative activity and develop individual talents.  The Black Horse Bar is open for refreshments on these evenings, offering an ideal place for friends to gather and catch up on this season’s events.

23 October – Workshop – Doing Improv and Laughing 7.30pm in the theatre (Led by Daniel Taylor)

The session will include the opportunity to use “warm-up” techniques to increase confidence and overcome nerves and play some famous improv comedy games (taught by UEA HeadLights Comedy Society), as played in the TV series “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and BBC’s “Fast & Loose”. The session will encourage active participation from the audience and performers and, a great deal of fun should be had by everyone. Developing quick thinking in response to an audience can be helpful in learning to deal with character development and reacting to unpredictable events when acting. The session will also allow socializing and hopefully a lot of fun for performers and audience alike.
