Script Hut Saturdays

As part of its ongoing commitment to developing new writing, Beach Hut Theatre Company is proud to present...

'Script Hut' Saturdays: Dramatic Tales for Beginners
 
THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF FOUR SCRIPT WRITING WORKSHOPS
 
'Have you a tale that's bursting to be told? Do you want to write a gripping drama or side-splitting comedy but you're not sure how to proceed? Perhaps there's a character that you'd like to explore and develop further...or maybe a theme? Or even a universe?
 
'Dramatic Tales for Beginners' is an all-day workshop that covers the basic nuts and bolts of script writing from the novice's perspective. By the end of this session, through tutor support, fun-filled exercises and lively peer discussion, all participants will be able to create compelling characters, explore different settings and generate their very own story and structure ideas. This 'Script Hut Saturday' event is ideal for anyone who would like to boost their confidence and develop a script writing 'toolkit' in a relaxed and friendly environment.'

Other upcoming 'Script Hut Saturday' Events happening over the coming months include:
 
Saturday 10th February 2018 'Louder than Words'

This full-day script writing workshop, led by Alison Watt, examines the use of action and the visual in dramatic storytelling and explores how these things can help deliver a richer, more satisfying dramatic experience and reveal a greater complexity in characterisation. Looking at stage directions, subtext, the use of props and other non-speech driven techniques, this workshop, (through exercises, analysis and the participants' creative work) will examine the 'unspoken' in drama and explore how it can work most powerfully alongside dialogue as a storytelling tool.
 
Saturday 10th March 2018 'Create a Calling Card Script'

A 'Calling-card script' is a script of at least thirty minutes playing time in length that showcases the original voice of a writer. When competing in today's entertainment industry marketplace, an aspiring writer must be able to show that they can tell a story and develop a character over a period of playing time. In this full-day workshop, led by Alison Watt, participants will have the opportunity to plan their own, full-length theatre script, radio script or screenplay. Using a basic, classical structure as guidance, writers will be encouraged to develop their own story ideas through observing a series of sequential tasks and considerations. From the moment where the story 'has to begin' through to the climax of the drama, each participant will explore their own individual creative ideas until they have structured that all important first draft. Participants will plan a play in a day...the perfect springboard to that first step into industry.

Saturday 7th April 2018 'Miniature Miracles'
 
Small but perfectly formed. Just as the short story obeys slightly different narrative rules to that of the novel, the short play is similar but also different to the full-length drama. But what makes a 10, 15 or 20-minute play, with its limited time for plot or character development, become successful and more than just a sketch? And how does its structure relate to the structure of its lengthier cousin? In this script writing workshop, led by Alison Watt, participants will unpick the mysteries of the shorter play to release the power and punch of what can be achieved in a short period of playing time. Through tutor guidance, peer support and illuminating exercises, participants will interrogate the intensity of the dramatic short and with so many industry opportunities currently related to the shorter play out there, whether comic or tragic, surely the short play is here to stay?

All workshops take place in the same venue with the same ticketing.
