Teens busy themselves on the Garrick Theatre stage.

Teens aged 12 to 18 can learn more about acting and stagecraft in free monthly workshops at Garrick Theatre – no previous experience is necessary. The workshops will run from  10am to 1pm on a Saturday each month, the first TAG (Teens at Garrick) workshop is being held on June 21.

The workshops are coordinated by Gail Lusted, who has been a drama teacher, actor and director for more than 20 years. Gail is responsible for directing the successful youth production of John Marsden’s So Much To Tell You that was recently showing at the theatre.

The aim is to run monthly workshops exploring all aspects of theatre and stagecraft including improvisation, voice, lighting, mime, masks, characterisation, set design, audition techniques and monologues. It’s hoped TAG will be able to enter a play in next year's Youthfest and various other competitive short plays festivals around Perth.
