Gunnedah Theatre Group, sponsored by Two Rivers Arts Council, will be holding theatre workshops under the direction of Maggie Denman, starting Monday, May 22, at the Civic Theatre, Chandos Street, from 7-9pm.

The workshops are designed on having fun with theatre, and will cover improvisation, character analysis and script readings.

The workshops will also cover backstage and front of house, so anyone interested in stage management, stagehands, costumes, make-up, prop painting/making, ticketing and program design, is invited.

“I am sure there are some people out there, who have been involved with live theatre, who have always wanted to get back into it,” Maggie said.  “These workshops offer the chance to hone those skills and have fun at the same time”.

Spaces are limited. Call Maggie 0407 782 549 to book.
