with Anna Spearpoint & Louise Beresford
Did somebody say a 4 week bootcamp course, learning how to perform and create comedy pantomime perfection? OH, YES THEY DID.
Tuesday 16th November | Tuesday 23rd November | Tuesday 30th November | Tuesday 7th December
Where: Wildcard Studios, 18 Balderton Street, W1K 6TG
For the past 3 years we, Anna Spearpoint and Louise Beresford, have pantomimed together at Theatre503 and now we want to share our tools and treats with you. In this 4 week course we will be focussing on…
SHARING: By week 4, you will all have written a scene and/or song. In this session, we’ll put all the work together to perform our own mini-pantomimes, testing our new tool kits.
We’re looking forward to having a range of experiences in the room. All we ask is that you have an interest in pantomime.
About Anna & Louise:
Anna and Louise met whilst gazing into each other’s funny bones in the cast of Theatre503’s ‘Cinderella and The Beanstalk’, 2018. In 2019, they were commissioned to write a new pantomime for Theatre503 and ‘The Fairytale Revolution’ was born. This was given **** by the stage and recommissioned for 2020. Our 2020 show was reimagined for livestream, directed by Emily Aboud. It won an OnComm award and was featured in the New York Times. Our shows take traditional fairytale characters and give them a new lease of life for modern audiences.
Anna is an award-winning performer and writer who has had plays developed with Arcola Theatre, Box of Tricks Theatre Company and Paines Plough. Her play ‘Omelette’ won the Playwrought scheme at Arcola and was nominated for an Origins Award for Outstanding New Work at VAULT Festival. She is an associate artist of the National Youth Theatre.
