Play in a Day - SOLD OUT


Tuesday 14th August

9.30 am to 3pm

Spend a day with us at Zinc creating a fabulous piece of theatre, all in our wonderful intimate theatre space with professional quality sound and lighting equipment.

Working together with our own professional actor you will spend the day, playing and creating together.

Learn fun new drama games and techniques and make your own piece of theatre, to perform for friends and family at the end of the day (please arrive 15 minutes before the day ends to watch the finished piece).

You will also get the opportunity during this busy day to design props and work on the technical side of theatre, including sound and lighting. We understand that not everyone wants to be centre of stage, and will ensure that everyone is involved the way they feel most comfortable.  There will be a part for everyone who wants one, but for children who would rather be behind the scenes there will be plenty of other ways to be involved.

The workshop will also include rest and downtime to ensure everyone is getting the best out of their day. Weather permitting some of the rehearsals and workshops will take place outside to make the most of the summer weather.

 Timings and Costs

All this fun is just £20 (9.30am - 3pm including lunch) per day per child.

All activities are run and supervised by fully DBS checked staff.
