This course will cover the foundations in theatre making practice. Each term is led by a new artist who will share their practice and support you to develop your own toolkit of theatre making skills. We’re thrilled that this course will be run by theatre maker/ director/ rapper/ beatboxer Conrad Murray. 

Conrad will share his passion for storytelling through music, hip hop and beat box theatre.  Each workshop will explore different theatre skills and techniques including song writing, spoken word and rapping/beatboxing.  These explorations will come together to create a collaborative piece of theatre.
