Drama Workshop A with Stephen Beggs

Bringing the short-listed titles to life is certainly one way to galvanise participants and reach out to those who think reading is for ‘nerds’!

Professional actor, director and drama education facilitator Stephen Beggs, former Company Manager of the Bruiser Theatre Company in Belfast, will provide some wonderful workshops which will see pupils transform themselves into various characters and inanimate objects from the various short-listed titles.

Lyric Theatre, Naughton Studio. Places limited to 5 per school. Please contact Kathy Lindsay.

Drama workshops can only operate with small numbers of pupils. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
