ATYP Theatre Flat-Pack
Theatre Flat-Pack gives you everything you need to stage your own ATYP production at your school. Our team will work with you from the very beginning; choosing the play, scheduling auditions and rehearsals, and getting you ready for opening night. Taking place over one term, Theatre Flat-Pack can be customised to suit your school’s specific needs.
Not only is this a great opportunity to expose your students to working with an industry Director, but Drama teachers can also use the program for their own professional development, gaining new skills and processes for directing theatre.
As part of Theatre Flat-Pack, you and your students will receive an online workshop with the Playwright or ATYP’s Resident Dramaturg, which includes a reading of the play and a discussion of its ideas and characters.
Theatre Flat-Pack will include:
- An ATYP play
- ATYP management of the production rights (included in the cost)
- An ATYP Theatre Director
- An online workshop with the Playwright or ATYP’s Resident Dramaturg
- 50 hours of rehearsals with the Director
- For an additional cost – an ATYP Designer and/or Stage Manager
