Act Your Age – Blue Beard Lives On

Tue 19 Oct View Performances & Book Tickets

Running Time : 1 hour 30 minutes



Join this zoom workshop – make friends, have fun, bring your creative skills and learn some new ones.

We will be exploring theatre writing & making throughout this autumn term. During the project, you will have the opportunity to create drama, poetry, song, film, comedy, and maybe a little magic and mentalism…. As seen in the music hall and variety of our theatres past. Using the playbills of Theatre Royal housed at Suffolk Archive we will breathe life into old characters such as; Richard III, Blue Beard, The Lover, The Somnambulist and bring them into the modern-day, imagine Blue Beard popping into Poundland, or the Lover in McdDonald’s. What would these ancient characters make of our modern-day life? This project will culminate in a filmed performance shown at Suffolk Archive 2022 to support an exhibition of our theatre’s playbill archive.

Prepare to get creative, have some fun, learn new skills and create a filmed performance that we will share at Suffolk Archive Bury St Edmunds in 2022. Bring your skills and creativity to this group and have fun creating some new performances with Theatre Royal. Sessions will take place on ZOOM with the possibility of some in-person interaction. No prior experience necessary!

Groups are every Tuesday 3pm to 4.30pm on Zoom

19 October to 14 December
