This 10-week course will cover foundations in theatre making practice. Each term will be led by a new artist who will share their craft and support you to develop your own toolkit of theatre making skills. 

The focus of each term will vary but across the year you will have the opportunity to explore acting, directing, movement and facilitation. 

Please note that you can either sign up for Citz Writers or Citz Theatre Makers, but won’t be able to take part in both at the same time.
