Our annual kids go free promotion Kids Week is going spooky for Halloween, offering children aged eight to 12-years-old the chance to take part in free acting classes at the Apollo Theatre.
The workshops will take place at 10:00 and 14:00 on 30 October, giving young theatre fans the perfect opportunity to get in the Halloween spirit by learning a scary story, creating spooky characters and, of course, doing the Monster Mash.
The interactive experience, which is led by actor Nathan Guy, will feature theatre games, creative movement exercises and improvisations, allowing young participants to warm up their imaginations while playing interactively with other children in a fun and relaxed environment.
Parents and guardians eager to see what their children have been up to during the workshop are also invited to return for the final 15 minutes of the class to watch a short performance.
Taking place as part of the Family Arts Festival, Kids Week’s Halloween workshops follow another successful summer for the annual family promotion, which offers a free child’s ticket with every full price ticket purchased for performances in August.
This year’s Kids Week sold more than 229,143 tickets, with children aged 16 or under not only enjoying a show for free but also taking part in a wide range of theatrical workshops, from singing on stage with Let It Be to quizzing the cast of Memphis The Musical.
Tickets for Kids Week’s Halloween classes can be booked here. To be the first to find out about Kids Week 2016 and all the latest family theatre news, sign up to our fortnightly Family Bulletin.
