Lyd Does RPA (with your help!)
Organized by: Lydia Davis
EVENT DATE Apr 22, 2017
Hi, I need your help to continue with this wonderful opportunity! My dream is to use theatre to work with at-risk kids, and this program fits that perfectly.
I've joined Riverside Performing Arts in Birmingham, England for 2016/2017 as a first year actor in their Learning Through Serving training program.
The nine month course for ages 18-30 “offers training which is designed to stretch and develop trainees into creative, versatile and confident actors who are inspired to use their gifts in acting to share the Gospel message.” This multifaceted program includes training in core performance & production skills such as singing, songwriting, dance, and spoken voice.
The program is split into three terms:
- Story Theatre
- Documentary Theatre
- Original Drama
Our team is touring the productions in primary and secondary schools in the Birmingham area and next summer we will take them on tour around the UK (in an average year the student team performs for well over 30,000 people).
As trainees we serve in the partner church (Riverside Church) in whatever way we're gifted. I help with two different groups of young people. There is also a discipleship component that explores basic doctrine, service, spiritual disciplines, etc.
