Theatre Workout is developing two workshops for Dreamgirls, ideal for students of all ages and abilities. They both teach performance techniques while exploring the characters and themes within the production, telling the story of characters, songs, scenes and more.
Focused on the key themes in the show, such as friendship, ambition, and fighting adversity, this workshop follows the central story of Effie White. Students will explore a range of acting techniques as they create their own versions of characters in Effie's world, and recreate her story in the studio.
This workshop covers acting, voice and speech, devising, character development, improvisation, solo and group work, teamwork, discussion and more.
Musical Theatre Workshop
Ideal for more advanced students, this workshop focuses on musical theatre performance with a focus on 'acting through song'.
Students will explore songs from the show, such as I Am Changing and One Night Only, learning to analyse songs from an actor's perspective, learning singing and acting techniques, before performing songs in character at the end of the workshop.
Thirty-five years after the groundbreaking original Broadway production, this UK and West End premiere of the sensational Tony® Award and Olivier Award-winning musical DREAMGIRLS is playing at the Savoy Theatre, London.
DREAMGIRLS transports you to a revolutionary time in American music history and charts the tumultuous journey of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called ‘The Dreams’. They learn the hard lesson that show business is as tough as it is fabulous.
DREAMGIRLS features the classic songs ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’, ‘I Am Changing’, ‘Listen’ and ‘One Night Only’. This much-anticipated new production is directed and choreographed by the hugely successful, Tony® and Olivier award-winning Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Something Rotten!)
