Sonic Boom Theatre present
Mon 25 - Fri 29 Jul 2011 | Mon-Thurs: 1pm-5pm* // Fri: 1pm-7pm* | Age 5-8: £32 // Age 9-17: £52
A theatre workshop for children aged 5-17 at the Arches, Glasgow this summer.
Are you aged between 5 and 17? Then something exciting is happening this summer! Sonic Boom Theatre are giving you the chance to star in their special youth production of Alice’s Adventures Through The Looking Glass on Friday 29th July, ahead of the full show at the Arches this August.
Rehearsals will take place from Mon 24th to Fri 29th July from 1pm-5pm*, before performing the show twice on the Friday evening in front of invited friends and family.
As well as having a great time, putting on a show has other benefits for young people. Drama helps build confidence and social skills, as well as improving literacy, verbal communication and concentration, so it’s sure to be one of the most enjoyable, productive ways to spend a week of the summer holidays. It’ll be hectic, challenging, exciting and, most importantly, fun!
Join us for your chance to be Alice, the Hatter, a Queen, a Knight, a Lion, a Unicorn, Tweedledum, Tweedledee or one of the many other wacky characters involved…
*Rehearsal times apply to young people aged 9-17. Ages 5-8 will attend Mon-Thurs for two hours (either 1pm-3pm or 3pm-5pm), and 2pm-7pm on Fri 29th.
ADDITIONAL INFO FOR PARENTS //
All participants should wear comfortable clothes and shoes for rehearsals and bring something to drink, plus a snack if desired. You may be asked to bring something particular to wear for the show, but don’t worry, it’ll all be stuff you’re likely to have lying around anyway.
We aim to be as inclusive as possible. If your child has any special requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can try to make the necessary arrangements.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Clare at Sonic Boom on 07766273745 // firstname.lastname@example.org

“Where can you see tomorrow’s work today? The answer is The Arches.”
Producing and presenting risk-taking work from local and international artists and companies, the building has boasted performances over the past two years from Derevo, The TEAM and Taylor Mac, hosted the National Review of Live Art and New Territories festivals and seen blistering performances from boundary-pushing artists and companies such as John Moran, Adrian Howells, Ontroerend Goed and Quarantine as part of 2010’s BEHAVIOUR festival, our annual celebration of the live experience.
The Arches is also Scotland’s leading provider of support for emergent artists and performance practitioners, providing a year-long programme of opportunities including Artist in Residence programmes and our two annual awards, Platform 18: New Directions and the Brick Award, as well as showcasing raw work from homegrown talent such as Nic Green and Rob Drummond in Arches LIVE, our annual festival of brave new work.
Our dedicated Creative Learning programme offers even further-reaching opportunities for development across a broad range of social groups, with events ranging from urban music production course Tigerstyle and the newly launched Arches Community Choir, to mentoring schemes, professional development projects and off-site performance work with diverse social groups.
Words from Jackie Wylie, The Arches’ Artistic Director, following the tragic death of Adrian Howells:
“All at The Arches are devastated by the loss of Adrian Howells this week. He was our Artist in Residence and The Arches was his creative home. But more than that, he was a dear friend and companion in life to many of us here.
So many would say that there truly was no one like him, who personified love, generosity and the deepest type of empathy and desire to understand those lucky enough to have met him. With great humour he was able to create an instant connection with anyone he encountered. He was able to translate this desire to nurture and connect into his performance practice and in doing so leaves behind not only an incredible and influential body of work but a multitude of audience members across the world who have in some way been transformed by these encounters.
He supported, encouraged and was at the heart of an entire community of artists in Glasgow who will miss him terribly.”
