Acting Workshop for Young Performers

Want to go on a crazy fun theatrical adventure from a different time?

If you are aged 12-15 years and theatre is your thing, you should definitely come along. Ben Winspear, acclaimed actor and director will head up the crew in this crisp and cheeky adaption of the Monkey myth, by local playwrite and Big Monkeyfounders Les Winspear.
