Astrid Lenne (left) and Laura Wilson are looking forward to improving their performance skills at a theatre workshop this month, organised by Lesley Summers, Trish Deakin and Cheryl Favaloro.
Two Echuca girls have jumped at the chance to develop their musical theatre skills, improve their confidence and watch a major production as part of a holiday program this month.
Astrid Lenne, 15, and Laura Wilson, 11, will spend three days learning drama games, audition skills, voice projection, character development and sets, one day performing at aged care homes and the final day in Melbourne watching Les Miserables.
The Echuca-Moama Theatre Company Spring into Theatre workshop will see 20 budding performers, aged between 12 (this year) and 18, tutored by experienced actors, directors, backstage crew, trained teachers and local playwright and music therapist Iris Vandersluys.
‘‘I really enjoy performing arts and music, so this is a chance for me to develop more skills in acting and singing,’’ Astrid said.
Laura said she hoped the workshop would boost her confidence.
‘‘I can’t wait to see the show and it’s something interesting to do over the holidays,’’ she said.
With 16 spots left, organisers are encouraging children to book their place as soon as possible.
‘‘The workshop will help the kids with their performance skills and give them more confidence in pursuing their love of the arts,’’ Cheryl Favaloro said.
‘‘What they learn at the workshop, they can use when they audition for EMTC or their school production.’’
The program will be held from September 22 to 26.
The workshop costs $200 and includes snacks, drinks, transport, Les Mis tickets and youth membership to EMTC.
