After delighting Aberdeen audiences over the festive period with Jack and the Magic Beans, Scottish Youth Theatre raises the curtain on its spring term of weekly drama classes next week.

Held at Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre, these active workshops are led by professional tutors and offer a great chance for children and young people to enjoy learning about performing arts, as well as building their confidence and providing a creative environment within which to make new friends.

The Saturday classes at all levels cover: character, improvisation, movement, voice and devising.

No previous experience is required and anyone aged from five to 25 is invited to come along and discover what Scotland’s national theatre ‘for&by’ young people has to offer.

The spring term runs from Saturday, (January 21) to Saturday, March 24 and the cost for the 10-week term is £110.

Further information on SYT’s spring classes is available on www.scottishyouththeatre.org

Scottish Youth Theatre, in partnership with Aberdeen Performing Arts, staged Jack and the Magic Beans at The Lemon Tree Studio before Christmas, based on the classic fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.

The popular interactive show, created specially for at three to seven year olds, wowed audiences so much that extra performances had to be added to the run to meet the demand for tickets.
