The Redlands U3A Theatre group kicks off its 2019 season with a series of theatre workshops from 10am to 2pm on January 24 at Faith Christian Church, Thorn Street, Ormiston.
Director Sue Willingham will conduct the workshops.
She said the intent was to assist the theatre cast to master the art of stage craft and other stage essentials such as sound and lighting.
“The group welcomes anyone interested in learning about theatre with a view to performing or helping back stage. While the action on stage is the obvious end result of rehearsals, there are many people back stage who are rushing around making sure anything needed on stage is where the actor would expect it. If it takes a village to raise a child it also takes a lot of people to bring a show to fruition,” she said.
“Sound and lighting people are a significant group whose talents add to the atmosphere of magical theatre. The group has state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment and should anyone be interested, tuition can be given,” she said.
Enquiries to Ms Willingham on 3348 2369.
