Tonight, Mandy Precious led a script writing workshop which brought us all of our shell and unleashed our creative side.

The biggest surprise of tonight was Dicky who took to script writing like a duck to water. His script had amazing depth and the introduction led to us all wanting more! Dicky's script was definitely popular within the group and we loved watching it in action.

Script writing does not come easy to a lot of our Turnpike members and so this workshop really pushed them. They soon realised that if you have a little self belief, you can do anything and write an amazing storyline that leaves the audience wanting more.

Unfortunately, tonight's workshop on improvisation was cancelled when the session leader was unable to attend. Instead we improvised ourselves and had a Turnpike team building session.

Character building is something we all seem to take for granted but tonight, Martin Green reminded us just how important it can be.

Martin led the very useful workshop tonight for the Turnpikers and we all really appreciated his efforts. Martin provided us with worksheets which can be applied to any production and will assist us in really understanding the character we are playing.

We think this is definitely something we will be using in future productions to ensure we get the most out of our cast!

Tonight saw the first of our 12 performance based workshops which was run by Colin Kilbride on ëvoice projection.

We can all be guilty of not projecting our voice during a performance and we need to make sure our audience can hear every word otherwise, we run the risk of losing their attention.

This workshop helped everyone appreciate the skill of voice projection, but mainly our shier members of the group.
