Drama and writing workshops for community theatre project in Newhaven

THE PORT, the Beast and the Traveller will be the play staged during a community theatre project in Newhaven next summer.

Organiser Inroads Productions is appealing for volunteers to take part in free writing and drama workshops as part of the scheme.

The play was written by professional playwright Sara Clifford and will culminate in a performance in July 2012.

The drama workshops will take place on Wednesday March 2, 9 and 23, while the writing workshops will take place on Thursdays March 3, 10 and 24.

There will be more a writing session on March 16 and a drama session on March 17.

All sessions run from 6.30pm to 8pm at the Hillcrest Centre.

Participants will be able to explore the themes collected in the research phase through creative writing and drama, while at the same time contributing to the development of the script.

And on Saturday there will be a family art workshop day on Saturday April 2 from 11am to 3pm.
