Last week’s first session of the Deniliquin Theatre Company has given its founder confidence the group will be a huge success.
Sam Willis and Hannah Webster welcomed 20 children to the initial session, where they worked on drama skills, drama games and skits.
‘‘Hannah and I feel comfortable going into the future and are looking forward to working with the children and their parents,’’ Mr Willis said.
‘‘We received quite positive feedback after the workshop.
‘‘It was a really good night and I was quite overwhelmed with the reaction we’ve had.
‘‘We have had a few parents who have come to us asking to be involved and help out.
‘‘We also gained more interest after having our stall at the Art Out Artisan and Vintage Markets (on Easter Saturday), where more children signed up to participate.’’
Workshops are held every Tuesday at the Deniliquin Regional Sports and Entertainment Stadium, with activities to vary from week to week to cover all aspects of stage acting.
There will be a particular focus on drama, dance and productions.
Workshops for children aged seven to 14 are held from 5.30pm to 6.45pm, followed by the 15 years old to adult session from 7pm to 8pm.
