BORDERS Youth Theatre has announced the return of their Creative Writing and Performance workshops.

These have been a new venture for Borders Youth Theatre since lockdown.

The workshops take place on Zoom every Thursday between 18:30 and 20:00.

The first of these workshops is due to take place on September 1.

The leader for the workshops is Kath Mansfield who is a trained English teacher as well as being a published writer, an actor, director, and producer of many performances, both with young people and adults.

Having worked professionally in the arts sector for many years, she has had huge successes tutoring, mentoring, and supporting young people in all kinds of drama skills including script writing.

Jenny Anderson, who was a Borders Youth Theatre participant for many years and has assisted and led in a variety of drama workshop environments will be the assistant.

Borders Youth Theatre are sure that all participants will benefit hugely from these workshops.

Youngsters will learn lots of new skills whilst building confidence in their abilities.
