Performance Workshops

Open to ages 7-11  & 12-16

Participants will learn and perform extracts from some of our favourite musicals, staged (or about to be staged!) at Birmingham Hippodrome. Using dance, drama and song to recreate iconic moments in musical theatre, the young people will perform their final versions to families and friends on the final Friday of each workshop week in our Patrick Centre Studio, supported by the Technical Summer School participants.     

Technical Workshops 
Open to ages 12-16

Young people will work alongside members of Birmingham Hippodrome’s technical team of lighting, sound and stage management. This workshop will let participants into the magic of theatre and teach them how to create many different stage effects which enhance a show’s performance. Working simultaneously with the performance workshop participants, the young people will learn how to: design and rig lighting; create special smoke effects; reproduce concert quality sound and integrate film into a live performance.
