Forty aspiring performing artists, aged from 11 to 18 years old and from across Northern Ireland, recently participated in Cinemagic’s ‘Devising Musical Theatre’ residential camp in Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast.
The three-day camp focused on developing new skills and getting to know each other through workshops with industry professionals. Workshop topics included good relations, drama, devising, acting, singing and dancing.
The young people, who all had varying levels of experience in performing arts, also took part in rehearsals with a public performance for friends and family at Belvoir Players Studio, Belfast. Cinemagic filmmakers filmed the camp and behind-the-scenes footage documenting the journey will be given to the young people.
