Funny year ahead for Kyogle youth

Kyogle's theatre program for young people, DIRT, has a new flavour for this new year. The 2012 season will see students create original works in a series of comedy styles, including parody, slapstick, and improv.

And these works will be showcased in the annual performance later in the year.

DIRT is for eight to 17-year-olds and ignites and nurtures a passion for theatre providing an opportunity for young artists to participate in a collaborative process - all the while having fun.

Joelle Foy (drama teacher) and Paul Worsnop (actor) guide the participants.

The program includes workshops on theatre sports, stagecraft, technical theatre and film by experienced industry professionals.

The program commences on Monday, February 6. Running for two hours a week it's held at the Kyogle Memorial Hall. The number of participants is limited to 20. Cost is $5 a week. Or $8 for two siblings.

Application forms for new students are available from Kyogle Together, 8 Geneva Street, Kyogle, or by emailing villagehall
