“Breathing New Life into Old Classics”

with Miracle Theatre


This year we have invited Miracle Theatre for a fun day workshop looking at making classic texts fresh and relevant for modern audiences. Working with a selection of Bill Scott’s recent adaptations including The Cherry Orchard, The Importance of Being Earnest and The Tempest, this day will look at developing interesting characters and bringing these to life in ways that connect with audiences of today, while still staying true to the original intentions of the text.

It is intended that this workshop will be of great interest to both Actors and Directors.

Miracle Theatre has been touring original, inventive theatre across the UK since 1979. It is one of the South West’s most distinctive voices. It produces a rich-mix of touring theatre from new writing and to popular adaptations of classic plays.

Miracle’s projects are collaborative, bringing together artists, actors, musicians, writers and makers from around Cornwall to create work with a unique offbeat style, a joyful use of language and an immediate visual appeal. It skilfully integrates the very latest technology with traditional storytelling to bring together audiences of all ages across the South West and beyond.
