A new series of workshops is launching this September in York, and it’s aimed at young people with a love of theatre, who want to either gain or enhance skills, an experience they won’t find at any other out of school club.
The Dungeon Academy – a new initiative from The York Dungeon is exclusively for those aged 12 – 16 years of age who want to learn the art of ‘Scary fun’.
As most York residents know, The York Dungeon features a team of live actors who have to perform a variety of different shows every single day. Now they want to pass their ability on to the next generation, and they hope this academy will be the perfect stepping stone.
“Our actors are some of the most talented around,” says Performance Manager, John Andrews, “for those who do The Dungeon Academy, they’ll be learning everything our actors have to, including how to do the iconic Dungeon make-up, dress as our characters and, of course, perform a selection of our famous shows”.
Over the 4 weeks, participants will train with professional Dungeon actors, learning everything there is to know about performing in the Dungeon.
Once the course is over, participants will be able to perform a final performance in front of their friends and family, inside The Dungeon itself. There are only 12 spaces available for this year’s academy, with a special early-bird offer for those who book and pay up to 4 weeks before the start of September.
Spaces are £100 (£75 early-bird) per person for 4 Workshops every Saturday from 8th – 29th September 2018. Each workshop lasts 3 hours starting at 9am.
