Panto Workshops – Jack & the Beanstalk Wed 2nd August

A MasksBurjesta Theatre are putting on our first ever panto this Xmas, Jack and the Beanstalk, at our place of residence, The Casa, Hope Street, Liverpool which of late has been transformed into a 100 seat fringe theatre space.
We’ll be running workshops starting this Wednesday, 2nd August and then each Wednesday thereafter (no workshop on 23rd August) which will begin by looking at the origins of panto and some of the influences on it such as commedia dell’arte and Mummers plays from the Middle Ages, and then turn towards the production itself in September.
So if you’re interested in being the female lead boy or the male Dame, or maybe helping out backstage or you simply want to know more about pantos then come along this Wednesday. All are welcome from total beginner to experienced actor. Each workshop is a ‘stand-alone’ workshop and costs £3/£2.
