Acting and Workshops Tour

Acting and Workshops Tour

Job Outline

We will be recruiting 16 actors to participate in our ‘Acting and Workshops’ tours, which will form four groups, each of which will tour a region of Italy. We are very excited to announce that we have a new repertoire for 2020, which include thoughtful and interactive adaptions of Fairytales and English classics as well as original comedic sketches. Performances consist of material adapted for a particular language level, focusing on a particular theme and grammatical point. This group works exclusively with primary and middle school age groups.

Repertoire:

3 English Tales:

Peter Rabbit. CEFR Pre-A1. Ages 6-7 years old
Peter Pan. CEFR A1. Ages 7-9 years old
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. CEFR A1/A2. Ages 9-11 years old

7 Sketches:
Shows to be confirmed. CEFR A2/B1. Ages 9-14 years old

Each show is followed by a 30 minute workshop. The actors split the audience into smaller groups and run 30-45 minute workshops which include games, songs and activities relating to the didactic element of the show. Each actor will work with approx. 20 – 30 students in each workshop. All workshops are part of the repertoire and are prepared for you.
