Join us on Mondays, 4.30-6.00pm, for lots of madcap mask fun at Trestle Arts Base
Using Trestle’s renowned full masks and half masks, young people ages 10-16 years will build skills and confidence in mask performance, create wonderful characters, devise scenes and take part in a mask performance at the end of term. The sessions are led by Trestle’s professional theatre practitioners and there will also be the opportunity to work towards new Trinity Exams in Mask Theatre.
Marvellous Masks was set up and developed last year in partnership with Beaumont School and Trinity College London and we’re delighted to now be running the sessions at the home of Trestle Theatre Company.
