THE Discarded Nut Theatre Company have announced their new programme of workshops at The Nutshell, Kings Walk, Winchester from January 2019.

There's something for everyone including its new adult acting company, The Walnuts for anyone aged 18+; Play Time, a book club with a difference where you read and talk about incredible scripts together; Stage Combat, where you learn all the skills needed to create some of the most dramatic moments from some of the greatest plays, and the sensory and interactive Story Time for babies and toddlers with Beccy the Buccaneer and her mischievous parrot, Pablo.

All these workshops are taking place alongside our Monkey Nuts Youth Theatre, aged 7-11, its musical theatre young company, for ages 4-12, and the Discarded Nut Youth Theatre, ages 11-25. They are currently creating fantastic performances of, respectively, Robin Hood, Madagascar the Musical, and a contemporary take on Measure for Measure, mixing Shakespeare’s classic words with new writing. There’s still time to join in January.

Discarded Nut are also presenting a Masterclass workshop on audition techniques with Animate Theatre Company on Tuesday January 8 from 6.30pm-9.30pm. A must for anyone applying to drama school this year; you will receive direction on how best to master your monologue for potential drama school auditions and beyond.
