WORKSHOPS HAVE NEW FORMATS

“Of course we do online,” states Joanna Lucas, actor and workshop leader. STET adds: We move with the times. Students need to move with the times. In fact, students need to move. Sitting at their desks developing academic headaches, yawning from hunched up positions, yearning to get up, we know they need something else. Joanna’s last live workshop for STET was last October. She has been online ever since. Isn’t it time she share some invigorating experiences with your students?

SPACE TO WORK

Our office has moved! We have a larger space for our desks, our files, theatre props and furniture, leaflets, posters and intriguing gifts from fans, but mostly for our staff, who can sit comfortably working out new projects for our audiences and actors. So ...as we diligently work from home, thinking about that wonderful new office... we are jolly well going to use our new felt elation. We plan to expand our outreach to schools. A new campaign starts this month to reach more teachers in a move with new horizons.

STORYLINES WITH NO MISTAKES

As the train heads home from Maastricht, Alex Baggett speaks on the phone to STET, “I had an acting engagement.” He's excited and ready to work. Booking him for your school means you benefit from his experience in the field. A methodical improviser, he works with students to build stories from scratch, from home now, as schools are closed. “We create characters. There’s a conflict. Their plot solves the problem,” says Alex. In the news, psychologists in the Netherlands state that increasingly children are stressed and frustrated being stuck at home. Alex’s classes help work out some of their issues as they learn. The outcome: understanding is improved, confidence is regained. He adds, "Everything the students do is right - there are no mistakes."

OUTREACH EXPANDS

Welcome to our new volunteer consultant, Gig Gamaggio, who will connect with schools by email and phone. She brings with her not only experience in dance and theatre education, but also in client development and a listening ear for schools and teachers to talk about workshop options. “We want to bring you on board! This is the ideal time to plan for creative classes. Current Corona restrictions have put a strain on teaching and learning. Let our actors take over some of the work!” says Gamaggio. English theatre workshops are easily taken to an online format, when classroom meetings are not possible. Ms.Gamaggio is reachable at g.gamaggio@theenglishtheatre.nl.
