Guys, I know it’s miserable outside, but I have something that will cheer you up, the very beautiful Elaine Carroll will be facilitating this Tuesday’s workshop! YASSS QUEEN.

Following on from last week’s workshop, Elaine will bring you through what you’ll need to put on a theatrical production including explaining everyone’s roles and even a bit of budgeting. There may be an organogram and spreadsheet involved, Elaine’s favourites!
Over the next coming months we will introduce you to the different facets of a production, from translating an idea to a concept, to budgeting, directing and producing.
With the talent, experience and knowledge No Drama has, we feel it’s time to spread the word.
Kicking off this block will be Mr. Jonathan Shortall, who will takes us to where all our productions start: the script. What are the components of a script? How do different authors approach creating one? What do we look for in a script were looking to produce and what do we do once we have one we like the look of? All these questions and more will be answered, with the usual games, chats and good times you’ve come to expect!
