Trestle Theatre workshop for King Lear cast
15 Sep 2014
Renowned theatre company Trestle Theatre came to Witham Hall School to deliver a mask workshop with the cast of King Lear. The cast, made up of children from Year 7 & 8, all took part in physical warm-ups and characterisation exercises, before trying on different character masks. They then tried speaking some of the lines from King Lear using the different character masks, voices and stances. It was a fun and active afternoon, with lots of ideas to work on and develop in our rehearsals.
